Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The .357 ammunition is based on the real world .357 S&W Magnum rounds. Fabricated in the 1930's, the .357 cartridge was designed for U.S. law enforcement as a replacement for the .38 special round that was then being used. The .357 shell is slightly longer than the .38 special and it contains more gun powder (.38 special rounds can be used in guns chambered for .357, but the opposite is not possible). The need for more hitting power was due to the need of law enforcement personnel to be able to shoot through the metal car doors of the day, something the lower powered .38 special round could not do.
