|Very disappointed in this round. I ordered a box of 500 which were pictured in brass, but arrived as shiny silver shells. Not a problem since they fall smoothly when emptying the cylinder. I can tell when a .357 round is a light load and so can my 14 year old son. If you are practicing with these rounds, don't plan on being acclimated to the real .357 you keep on your weapon for self defense purposes. I concur that this ammo is dirty, but I guess its fowl smell is just a bonus.
I would have been better off spending less and ordering a clean shooting, aromatic .38 Special round.. Still looking for an economical .357 round, but I have to get through another 450 of these first. Don't waste your money.|
