Full Answer

One of the earliest adopters of the .357 Magnum was the law enforcement community. FBI director J. Edgar Hoover received one of the first models produced. In 1935, the Kansas City police department equipped all of its officers with the weapon. The gun's large bore and high-powered cartridge give the weapon incredible stopping power. The typical .357 revolver can hold six rounds, but the capacity was increased in later models to eight.
