    Has anyone used SRP for .357 mag for a rifle load? I don't have many SPP and I would like to substitute SRP. Thanks for any suggestions.

    Should be no problem. Back your load off some, and work it back up to accuracy. No need to load to the max anyway. This should also work fine for revolver's as long as the hammer spring is strong enough to set off primer.

    They will work. I have tried them with a couple of powders. Like jcwit posted, start low and stop a hair short of max data, unless signs tell you to stop sooner. My Trooper Mk III set them off no problem.

    Now this will work. Just watch the cases for pressure signs.

    With the shortage of SPP out there, I have been loading .38-.357-and 9MM loads with Rem. 6 1/2 (small rifle) primers with success. Make sure to have enough spring pressure to set them off.

    yep, ya shouldn't have any issues with a carbine or rifle igniting them, like others mentioned just back off a touch from your current load, if it's a maximum load.
