Does anyone make a hard cast 357 SIG. I know many people carry the 357 Mag as a back up hiking/hunting/woods gun with success.

Is there a similar cartridge for the 357 SIG?

Not that I am aware of, but if you reload I am sure you can work up a load of hardcast lead. I would not go much beyond a 150 grn SWC because your powder space drops quickly and I bet to get it to feed the bullet will have to be crimped to the front driving band. You could also do a 125 grn lead SWC in hard lead or even buy some Lasercasts light grained 358 sized lead and work up a load.


My one suggestion is you are venturing into the "wild unknown of reloading". Proceed with great caution.

.357 sig is a pretty fast round to go with hard cast on. If you try it, watch for leading of the barrel.
