    Got a hold of some 9mm lead bullets that are .355 diameter, 125gr.
    I will be shooting them out of a Sig.

    I have loaded up a few with 3.9gr of Win 321 and only see a trace of leading.
    Not a real hot load. Is it worth bumping the load up a little just to see if I get a better seal or is .355 just to small and not worth the time?


    Question probably has been asked before so posting a link would be a good answer also.

    Thanks in advance

    .355 is NG according to most..356 is the diameter of choice.Since you already have them IMO you have nothing to lose except some cleaning time.:banghead:

    Usually at least .356 is recommended but if you are just getting minimal leading go ahead and bump it up and see if it helps. It's certainly not going to hurt anything. Cleaning a little lead out isn't that hard.
