    400 grain Crusher #1 over 11.5 grains of Trail Boss. Nice accuracy and soft recoil (well, for a .500 S&W). A few ladies from this weekend's group of new shooters tried it and liked it. (and no, I didn't let any of them shoot the more exciting loadings).

    Anyone loading 357 Sig here?

    I thought the profile of the IDP #6 bullet looked promising for this caliber. It's hard to tell from the photo on the MBC website...is there a cannalure groove on this bullet?

    Just shot some favorite .357mag MBC loads this morning. Great way to start a long weekend! ;)

    MBC 158gr RNFP
    4.7gr Bullseye
    R&P brass
    CCI500

    MBC 158gr RNFP
    6.4gr Unique
    R&P brass
    CCI500

    MBC 158gr RNFP
    12gr AA#9
    R&P brass
    CCI500

    MBC 158gr RNFP
    13.5gr 2400
    R&P
    CCI500

    All shoot VERY well in my GP100 (6"). The AA#9 seems the most accurate from my Marlin 1894c, so far. More tests pending.

    .357 magnum

    .357 Action
    158 LSWC 18BH
    14.5 grains 2400
    Federal 200
    I'm not convinced my caliper is accurate, so I can't give an OAL. But, I seat to the cannelure and give it a firm crimp (not a roll crimp; I have a Dillon Square Deal B and it has its own properietary crimp die).

    Out of a 2.25" Ruger SP101 its a bit much. Not very fun to shoot. But out of a 4" SW 686, its a nice, powerful round. Not very much flame, just a lot of boom.

    I just bought some .41 in 225 gr. from Missouri Bullet. Now I can't find any load data for it.
    Could somebody help me?
    Thanks

    Thats my pet load with that bullet also. I shoot it out of a 4" 686 and find it to be very accurate and have plenty of boom for me.

    Even though this thread is quite dated, it still appears relevant so I'll post mine.

    .357 Zinger 140-grain TCFP 18 BHN
    7.5 grains Herco or 8.0 grains WSF (I like either one)
    Federal 200
    OAL 1.580

    The WSF seems a bit louder vs. Herco even with identical loadings, but definitely cleaner burning. The Herco does not meter very well for me, and it leaves my SP101 looking like it sat on top of an industrial smokestack for an extended period of time. Otherwise I think it's an excellent powder for this bullet as is WSF, YMMV.

    For most people, taper crimping a semiauto rd is nothing more than removing the excess flare. It doesn't need to provide any extra grip. So why not just put the mouth right over the groove? That's how I do it. The groove lets me seat and crimp in one step with no lead shavings. Yeah, you can get a little peek of the groove above the case rim on most of the rounds, but my guns haven't complained.

    Oh, as to the OP: IDPA #4 200 gr FN over 5.4gr Unique. And 158 gr 357 Action over 16.5gr H110, obviously in .357 mag and should be worked up for your particular gun and components! This load might cause serious leading in some guns.

    My 2 favorites with the same bullet...

    Cowboy #4 (200 gr RNFP) 12 BHN

    11.0 gr of AA#5 for Colt 45
    or
    8.0 gr of AA#5 for 45 ACP

    Was out with my nephew last weekend & after 100 rds there was zero leading in my 1911.

    Resurrect this thread.

    .45 ACP:

    225gr Flat Head and 230gr SoftBall
    6.0gr Unique @ 1.240" is good for around 850+ fps
    Same bullet, but 4.2gr WST does around 800 fps is is very consistent

    200gr SWC IDP1
    6gr Unique @ 1.250 is good for about 980 fps
    5.0gr WST @ 1.250 is good for around 920 fps

    250gr PinBusters work well in the .45 Colt with 9-10gr Unique and they work well in the .45 Super using Power Pistol, getting over 1150 fps from my 5" KKM bbl Glock 21 Gen4.

    .40 cal:

    3.5gr WST under a 200gr "Steeler" @ 1.140" is a sweet shooter!
    4.0gr WST under a 170gr SWC IDP2 @ 1.130" is also very nice
    3.5gr TiteGroup under the same 170gr SWC IDP2 is also nice, light recoil and the accuracy is superb! These are plinking loads or something you'd use at a shooting match.

    Looking to try the 180gr RNFP 38-40 bullet loaded warm in the 6" barrel, with lesser bullets I've got almost 1350 fps, would by my "woods/game" .40 load using 800x.

    .357 Mag:
    158gr SWC "Action" bullet with 14.8gr of Alliant 2400 (1.600") does over 1530 fps average from a 6" Ruger GP100. Very good load.

    I load the .452 Softball with Longshot powder. I use it as a brush gun hunting load and find that it works very well.

    .452 Softball
    CCI LPP
    7.0 gr Longshot
    973fps out of my 16" Hi Point Carbine barrel with great accuracy (I know its a Hi Point but it is fun to shoot and +P rated) No leading and no smoke. Gonna try the 200gr RNFP for my next loads.:what:

    I have two that have proven to be nice accurate loads.

    Both use MBCs 100 grain LFN "cowboy #6" 32s.

    On 32 long I use 3 gr HP38 and on 327 FM I use 6 gr HP38. Easy on powder and easy on my hands. WARNING these figures are over max and have been worked up to in my firearms.

    I load up the 180 gr 357 Striker bullets over 12.3 gr of 2400. It shoots amazingly well out of a Rossi R92 carbine and a Ruger GP100 6".
