I've never seen a bullet that light for a .357, only for .380 and small "9mm". Are they lead or jacketed ?

I think Lee has a mold that will drop a 105gr Cast SWC bullet with the right alloy. Chey-Cast bullets (http://www.cheycast.com/catalog.htm) has a 93gr and a 105gr bullet for sale but I'm fairly sure you won't be able to push those bullets as hard as you want to without a leading problem.

IMO you should use a good hunting bullet like the 110gr Hornady XTP bullet for what you're looking to do.

I have loaded a 95 grain sjhp ahead of 8.5 grains of unique. Out of a 4" service six it knocked a soda can futher than anything else. The bullets had been discontinued when I bought them years ago. This load was loud but has very little recoil. I can see it blowing a rabbit to bits. I don't know why I like this load, but I do.

The 95gr, or for that matter, the 105gr has very little surface to contact the bore. Add a lot of velocity and it may lead up.

I shoot a 105gr in my Ruger 3 screws and my m1873 Uberti clones. But they ain't fast. 800fps pistol, 950 from the rifle.

3.2 gr Americaan Select. I am at the bootom of the load.

It's been my practice over the years to find the bullet that shoots best in a particular firearm and load all my ammunition for it using that bullet. I've never had a critter complain because it was shot with the "wrong" bullet. By using the same bullet for everything, you don't have to worry about different points of impact, etc. You know what your load will do in that particular firearm and you become a better shooter.

Hope this helps.

I've loaded 110 gr. JHP's with max. H110/296 charges a few times. They chrono in the upper 1700's fps and a bit more from a 6". Very, very flat primers that over flow the pocket too. And flames that would probably cook a steak well done from 5' away too. But I would be uncomfortable trying that with a lighter bullet, especially a non jacketed one.

Red--These are Remington factory bullets. They actually look the size of 125 gr .357 bullets.. Same amount of bearing area as 125s too. The bullet base is Very deeply concave shaped. Sunken in. l may just keep them as a collector item. l wish l knew
how to post pictures. l would post one. l plan on using 110 gr jhp Remingtons.
