Accuracy at 50 to 100 yards and tough construction were the main design criteria for the 158 grain #8340 Jacketed Soft Point bullets when they were introduced in 1970. Accuracy rivaling the best target grade wadcutters makes this an exceptional hunting bullet for the 357 Magnum or larger cartridges in handguns or rifles when deep penetration and expansion are required. Best suited to medium game and heavy loads, this bullet is also right at home on the Handgun Silhouette range.
