    Greetings,

    You know the feeling: Aaaaaaaaaah sh*t!!!!!!!!!!!

    I just loaded 50 cartridges 357 Mag 158 gr over 10.2 gr of Blue dot with Wolf Magnum primers.

    Blue dot does not require magnum primers
    The maximum is 10.7 gr of blue dot for that kind of load.

    Question: Do i discard those rounds or I can shoot them with no problem?

    Thank you

    You can shoot them as is. There's still a pretty good margin in that load for safety.

    Hope this helps.

    Sounds like a good load to me.

    I use magnum primers with blue dot all the time. Makes for a cleaner burn in 10mm (357s twin cousin).

    I used a bunch of Blue dot with mag. primers in .357.
    But be careful, or like me, you could wear a S&W L frame out in about 15,000 rounds.
