The manual with my .357 SW pd340 Air Weight states that you must check ammunition for bullet pulling, which can cause jamming, before selecting a brand and model of ammo to carry. (I have had some .357 cartridges grow substantially in my revolver after a couple of shots)

That being said, they fail far less often than complicated and sensitive auto-loaders.
