Haven't been around on the handgun bench or forums for a while. Been loading for rifle mostly the last 5 yrs or so. Recently have been given S&W 357 Mag/w 6" barrel (686-2). I've only shot 38's out of it so far and I really liked shooting them. So I want to load some 38's for plinking. Attaining accuracy would be fun. Should / can I just go with 357 Brass in case I want to make the switch to 357? I'm sure curiosity will get the best of me. I'll be loading on a Dillon 550B. Have loaded for 40 Cal and 9mm. Here's what I have. Blue Dot, Tite group,Power pistol,Hi skor 700X. I have both Small pistol and small pistol MAGS primers. Can Magnum primers be used in the 38 loads if I keep away from max loads? Thinking smaller inventory What I need. Suggestions on all are appreciated. Dies. Are Carbide dies worth the extra $ ? I use Redding dies for rifle and have been happy. Brass. Can I just use 357 brass? Bullets.. Thinking middle upper end of the road in weight. Want to be able to control this thing. Some may be shot at a indoor range. Steel isn't an option there.
