would you load these in 357 cases?

158 RN best projectile?

I was looking at the 158 gr coated SWC from Missouri Bullet mentioned on another thread

Any experience?

That lip on the SWC might cause you some grief. I have an early Rossi 92 in.357and it doesn't like any SWC's .Even worse in a 38 sp case. I have 1000 of Missouri bullets ordered but the softer ones spec'd for 38 sp. They go in my handguns. Round nose flat point, or 158 Gr XTPs get fed in my Rossi.

Try them and see I guess

Did you get your order yet?

I did not order yet, wanted to hear the voice of experience, before I picked up 500 or a 1000.

I will take your advice on the Rossi, thanks!

I figured the longer cases would be best, even if I planned to load to 38 levels.

Thanks!

Have a Rossi 92 in .357. Favorite .38 Special load is Hornady 158gn swaged lead round nosed cowboy bullet with 3.5gn of Bullseye. It's what the wife prefers to shoot. Mild load but a more satisfying thump than a .22. Perfect for empty bulk freon cans at 75 yds.


Old guy, old guns.

When I get mine, I can send you a few to try at least. I ordered about the 1st of Dec. and they said 8-10 week delivery or so. PM me your address and I will send some when I get them. Probably be sometime in February.

I looked at the 125gr tcfp

https://missouribullet.com/details.php?prodId=234&category=20&secondary=17&keywords=

I might give them a shot, I can always use them in a revolver if they don't feed.

My Rossi M-92 loves those truncated cone bullets. I don't feed it RN FP bullets anymore, too many hiccups and jams. Jacketed bullets work well.

Colorado Cast bullets in Montrose CO makes TC bullets in 125 and 145 grains and they are VERY popular in the Cowboy guns.

A very smart friend with the same model Rossi told me early to ALWAYS make the ammo to an overall length of 1.550", whether you use 357 brass or a 38 Special case. Load appropriately for your intended shooting, To make my loading task easy I put the 125s in 38 Special brass (at 1.44") and use the 145s in either case in the M-92 at 1.55", easy to see what power level each round contains. A taper crimp (LEE 380 ACP) holds the bullet in place in the magazine tube (or my revolver cylinder).

If you don't want to wait 12-14 weeks for bullets from Missouri bullet co give Cimarron bullets a try. I have been using them and like them. They get them shipped out in about a week.
