Hello,

Would anyone have some handloads for 145-147 grain lead coated or plated / jacketed projectiles in .357 Sig?

Thanks in advance for any assistance.

Cheers

Apologies for the delay in replying. Have not had access to a computer. Have a quantity of AP100. I have been using this powder in 9mm, I have also looked at the plated HP 180grain projectile that Tigershark (Australian company) makes for the 357 Sig. Has anyone used a 180grain projectile in the .357 sig if so could they let me know what handload they used?

Again Thanks for all the replies.

Has anyone handloaded the Sig with 180 grain projectiles?

Thanks
I have not used a 180gr in a 357Sig. I have my Dillon Press set up to shoot a 125gr cast lead coated bullet over a close to max charge of Accurate No. 9.

I would think the 180gr would be a bit to large for the 357 Sig case. the 125 is the optimal bullet weight for it. I tried a dozen or so 147fmjs that I had left over from loading some 9mm and I think I used Unique for those loads. Been about 6 or so years since I have done it.

The 125gr load I use is 12.8gr of Accurate No.9. The website states 11.7grs as starting and a max charge of 13gr. I don't remember if I ran these over a chronograph and I don't have anything written down so I doubt I did. They shoot very accurately from my Sig P229 and they Kill Jack Rabbits(Hare) with authority. Blew the lungs out the exit.
