I just purchased a .357 Maximum Contender barrel and want to purchase some ammo to try before investing in reloading components. Lonestar Ammunition has .357 Max ammo made by Ammo-Texas LLC. Has anyone used that ammo? Opinions? Any other suggestions for getting some .357 Max ammo? Thanks! I do have a little.357 Mag ammo so will try that as well.

Never used any factory. Wasn't any around when I got my barrels. Have a super 14 and a carbine barrel made by OTT. If you have mag dies you are good to go. Mine like 180gr bullets and are cast friendly. Lil Gun powder performs well. Small rifle primers.

Do you have a link? I can't find it listed. My H&R factory Maxi loves 357 mag ammo. I'm still working on a Maxi hand load it likes.

I could not find any link to Ammo-Texas LLC. It's for sale on Gunbroker; search .357 Maximum ammo.

I had a Handi reamed from mag to Max, and it was pretty finicky for Max loads. The only powder I could ever get to shoot well from it was 4227. That's one of the only rifles I really regret selling.

Call up Michi-gun in St. Clair Shores, MI and see if they’ll ship. They had some (I think Remington) on their obscure ammo shelf yesterday.

None of their multiple choices are currently available but they did have big selection.

Thanks everyone for the suggestions. I've ordered a couple boxes of ammo from Steinel; will report on how it does.

Has anyone read the reviews about Steinel's 180gr 357 max ammo? I suspect they're using 180gr Speer bullets. They're hard bullets and tend to work better over 2200fps.

It’s waiting at home 230 miles away. I’ll be looking at it by the end of this week.
