What size primers are you using for your 357 max? I'm using IMR 4227. Will be using 158gr and 180gr bullets. Also do you have a pet load with this powder? Using MGM 20in barrel. Thanks in advance.

I don't own a Maximum but the loading manual that's near by says small rifle primers. The manual is an older Speer manual No 11. A friend had a T/C Contender 357 Max and his biggest problem was case head seperations from his over max loads.

On lesser loads I used sp mag primers ,but for upper performance loads use sr primers only , as a blown primer at those pressures ain`t fun for you or the firing pin bushing.

Small rifle primers and try a Sierra 180 flat point silhouette bullet. Works great out of my contender.

looked my load up:
Federal 205m primer
22.0 Winchester 296 powder
Sierra 180 FPJ .357 Silhouette bullet
Shoots great out of my contender.

Cci#41 are what I use with up to 30g of aa1680 for my TC encore with 180ssp bullets seated very long

This is obviously an encore only loading

The Hodgdon Load Data Site lists a Remington 7 1/2 primer.
The new Hornady 9th Edition manual also lists a Remington 7 1/2 primer.
Speer #12 lists a CCI-400 primer.
Lyman #49 doesn't list data for the .357 Maximum.

Standard Federal small rifle. Mine.run through a wheel gun. Fun to hand to some know it all that has been shooting .357 magnums all his life loaded hot with 210 grain bullets.

CC41's just because I have about 10000 of them to burn up.
