Berrys Bullets site says you can use cast or jacketed load data for their plated bullets that I believe are pretty much the same as Extreme bullets.
With a 3 inch barrel, it will be just over 1000 fps.
aren't going to do everything properly and don't want to hear complaints about leading.
Short version: plated bullets can generally be used with any published data, as long as they aren't driven faster than the manufacturer warrants.
What I'm saying is that if you load in the middle of published data for Titegroup, you're going to get light loads. You're going to have to work-up to published maximums to get mid-range loads. It can be worked up to CIP maximum pressure to get velocities that might otherwise call for a powder like Power Pistol or 2400. These would be top-end loads for Titegroup, but mid-range for 357 Magnum velocities for a given barrel length.
Extreme also has this:
Loading Facts: Due to the large case capacity, it is not recommended to use 357 Mag cases to load for target shooting. Instead, use 38 Special cases and loading data.”
I’d be interested in any range report.
