    Unique for cast 158gr. swc, and 2400 for jacketed mostly. I used to use 296 for jacketed hunting loads but haven't carried the .357 into the woods for years.
    For those who've never fought for it, the price of freedom shall never be known.

    AA#9 for the high end loads. Powerpistol for the mid-range loads and 38 Special for the powder puff loads.

    Settled on 13.5 grs. 2400.
    RCBS 162 gr, gc, home cast swc. The mix is half and half lead/wheelweights. BHN has been about 12.
    Use BAC lube sized .358 with a standard primer and decent crimp.
    Chrono's just under 1100 fps. out of my 6" S&W 19.
    Not the hottest load but I like it.

    It ain't what they call you, it's what you answer to.

    I prefer 2400 over 296/H110 for .357 Mag, .44 Rem Mag, and .45 Win Mag. More accurate and I LIKE being able to work up from a decent low starting load.
    AA7 and Herco are very good.
