"I bought a box of these for my 357 magnum. I have not had the chance to shoot them yet but they are a good looking shell. I did some research and people who buy them say they are great shells when it comes to performance. I expected some dirty old brass considering the fact that they are all reloads, but they look brand new. I will buy more. You honestly can\uFFFDt beat the price these days. Shells have gone through the roof."

"As a disclaimer I'm new to the 357 magnum caliber, and have limited experience with different rounds. I ordered these for use in my 6\" GP100. Every shot fired reliably and the brass was in fine condition. Based on the description I expected tarnished shells, but all of these appeared new.In the same order I also picked up a box of BVAC 38spl wad cutters. I'm of the opinion that this 357mag load is only slightly hotter than a 38+p. As a comparison I fired some \"Buffalo Bore\" with nearly identical bullet and those make twice the \"bang\".Price was decent.Accuracy was better than I am.Brass will be saved.Does not appear to be a \"full\" 357 magnum load.Good for plinking, but I can save $5/box and get 38 special. I'd be interested in seeing chronograph tests for this ammo. Maybe these do fly, but magically don't recoil. Hard for me to tell shooting paper."

"I am writing this review to let people know that what they are buying is NOT a JHP round, it is a SEMI-JACKETED hollow point. All the other ammo makers correctly describe their product, but not BVAC. I have sent several emails to BVAC asking about this misleading advertising, but I have yet to get a response from them. I have not shot the ammo yet, but I think that if you are selling a \"Semi-Jacketed\" round you should advertise it as such. I will not be buying any more BVAC ammo. They can't be trusted as far as I am concerned."

"I bought 250 rounds of this ammo, hoping for the best. I shot it through my S&W 686. I had to pull the trigger at least 12 times to fire 6 rounds every time. The primers would dent but the round would not fire. This was the situation with all 5 boxes. Bad primers? I don't know but I will not bet my life on this ammo. In all fairness, I had 1 box of their 230 gr. 45 acp ammo and had no problems what so ever."

"Recently fired a box at the range through a Taurus 605. Every third shot would not fire though the primers were dented. The dents however were not as deep on the non firing rounds and would still not fire on a second strike."

"Bought a couple of boxes and ran them through my GP-100. Accuracy of the ammo was good and none failed to fire. The ammo did seem to be a bit dirty, but I clean my firearms after use so this isn't much of an issue."

"I bought a box of these back in Nov 2010 and I did receive a semi-jacketed hollow-point in a Top Brass casing. All 50 fired accurately and reliably, maybe a bit dirty. Last week I re-ordered 2 more boxes, and received a fully jacketed hollow-point in a nickel coated Fiocchi case. I have yet to fire these. It appears that the early batches were not fully jacketed, but the recent shipments are. I ordered some for a friend too, and he's had no problems either. I use Bitterroot Valley in .45LC as well as .357 and I have yet to have problems. As far as I'm concerned, Bitterroot produces quality ammo."

"I bought a box of these and a box of swc both 158 gr and both came in a Bitterroot boxes and both had nickel Fiocchi casings... So kinda confused if I'm reviewing Bitterroot or Fiocchi. Either way the smoke wasn't too bad, same with cleanliness of the gun and I had 0 miss fires from both these and the .38 special wad cutters also from Bitterroot though the .38 was significantly dirtier. Not a bad buy imo."

"Three misfires in a box of 50 rounds - rough if they were the rounds someone needed in self - defense situation. Primers were seated slightly too deep in each misfiring cartridge. Pressure signs in a number of cases , brass burnishing , primer flow , and a few that wouldn't extract easily.I discarded brass and won't be buying these again."

"Have been through many, many boxes of this ammo in the past with good results....but have just received three boxes in some garbage zinc cases!...touted to be in \"reloadable brass cases\"..these guys are really slipping, and not just in this caliber....so much for \"made in the USA\"...no more BVAC for me...."

"I bought a few boxes of this ammo after reading a couple of favorable reviews from people who owned Desert Eagle pistols like my own. The brass was new, shiny, and reloadable, smoke and powder were not a problem. What didn't work was the action on my pistol. Every time. I had to manually chamber every load, the powder was insufficient for the Eagle's action. I have fired many types of ammo through these pistols, this is not a case of the pistol needing to \"break in\". I'm sure the ammo would be fine for revolvers/ lever actions."

"Shot again today: fully jacketed hp & nice top brass. I can see where the prior reviewer had issues as this is a REDUCED LOAD. But it is less punishing @ range in my L-frame. I have opted for 38+p @ roughly 365 ftlbs@muzz but increases clean up time on inside of cylinder w/ shortened casing. 110g Express & USA are expensive - approx. 405 enrgy/muzz; this load is reported to be about 100 ft.lbs under a hot 125g load & fits right into my application nicely."
