    I have about four pounds of this on hand and was hoping that it would work in the 357 sig. Does anyone have any recipes for this powder in this cartridge? I will be using 124 grain reminton Golden saber bullets for my reloads. Thanks in advance.

    It works fine in 40, so 357 sig will work fine too. Just watch the chrono if you are going to push toward the top of the data, velocities will flatten out as charges increase and that is the point where you need to stop. At that point you are close to pressures spiking unpredictibly. Also be sure to prevent bullet setback, TiteGroup isn't very forgiving of setback.

    If you don't mind a little muzzle flash and can trade the powder to someone with Power Pistol I think you will be ahead. Power Pistol is a much more forgiving powder and will push a bullet a good bit faster than TG with no drama.

    Too many better suited powders. Tight group is a bit fast for the .357 Sig. It will work , but go carefully and don't expect top velocities.

    I would get a powder better suited for it. I'm sure folks with more 1st hand knowledge loading the .357 Sig will make some good suggestions.

    FYI: I had very good experience with Power Pistol when I was loading 357 Sig.
