    Buffalo Bore Heavy 357 ammo?

    Has anyone tried the BB 357 ammo? Their stuff is ordinarily very hot, and the 125 grain ammo I obtained claims a 1700 fps velocity at the muzzle (4 inches I'd imagine), which is extremely fast. Is this stuff usable as a defensive load? It is quite expensive.
    Thanks.
    Six for sure...Uh, I mean Five. Five for sure..

    csg - I have only had feedback from another shooter but it does seem it is loaded quite hot. I get the impression it is in same ball park as CorBon stuff - I know my 140 grain CorBon .357 is quite a sizzler. Not sure for myself I want to go quite as light as a 125 in that cal.

    For other than carry tho I load my own - 158 SWC gaschecks.
