MOAR stopping power

Great Video on the effectiveness of the .357 magnum handgun cartridge:  125 grain semi-jacketed hollowpoints to be precise.  Note that "grain" indicates the weight of the projectile.  A grain is about 64.8 milligrams, so 125 grain projectile weighs about 8.1 grams, or about  1/3 of an ounce.

Here is a glossary of bullet type abbreviations (i.e. FMJ, JHP, etc...)

Note video looks good on full screen.
