    I'm trying to load up some 357 magnum loads using H110 and wolf small magnum primers. I'm having a hard time finding jacketed bullets in the 158g flavor. Zero bullets sells a "38 special (.357 diameter) 158g JSP." Is this bullet fine for full power magnum loads? Thanks in advance.

    If it's a JSP, it is a Jacketed Soft Point, and would be fine for full power .357 loads.

    I haven't shot the 158 Gr Zeros, but the 125's shoot real well in .38 & .357.

    Roze Distribution usually has pretty good prices.

    Ghost Holster has good prices, but doesn't sell 38 caliber Zero's.

    I have fired several thousand of the Zero 158 in both the JSP & JHP variety. Both worked like they were supposed to and I had no complaints. Everything from light target loads to hold on with both hands loads. If I didn't cast my own now I would still be buying them.

    Sorry. I didn't check. Those are just places I have bought Zeros in the past at good prices. . :)

    I found the bullets at Roze Distribution. The home page says they are 4-6 weeks behind on orders, but allowed me to add bullets to cart without any "out of stock" messages. I placed the order and the website gave me an order number. I guess we'll see.

    I got my zero's from Trident Ammunition (tridentammunition.com) and they were at the last local gunshow selling some. They are good hunting bullets FWIW.

    "4-6 weeks" - HAHAHAHAHAHA...... They leave that default statement on their site permanently.

    Have had Zero 158 JSP's on order since mid-October and no delivery expectation for quite a while. I check with them now and then to make sure my order remains active. They assured me it's still in the system waiting for whenever they get them. Some freak out about such delay but I'm a patient man and will simply enjoy when the order finally fills.

    Don't get in a hurry Dr Bear, you either have one heck of a wait ahead of you or you're the luckiest and are the last person to place your order right before they get them in. Set your expectation accordingly.

    Roze distribution is not going to get you any jacketed bullets in 4-6 weeks. I ordered 1000 each of .357 125 JSP and 158 JSP. I ordered these because the JHP of the same weight was listed as out of stock. I just received the 125's after 60 days. Still waiting on the 158's. If you poke around the Roze website you will see a statement that shipping delays are now out to 120 days. They don't have the statement up front, I guess they want people to think that 4-6 weeks is something they can still do so the orders keep coming in.

    Still, the price is the best around for quality jacketed pistol bullets. But waiting 4 moths to get them has me looking around at other brands and willing to pay more if I can get the bullets otherwise I will run out of ammo.

    Then you have to try and get primers...

    I ordered some 125 jhp about a week and a half ago and got them on Friday. I thought I was going to be waiting a month but a little over a week ain't bad.

    I have shot the 230gr FMJ .451" bullets but those are the only ones. They are made well and are accurate. I'm guessing all their products will perform just as well.

    Thanks for the heads up people. I'll keep my order with Roze Dist. Like most other reloading components I'll end up forgetting about the order several weeks from now. If and when they do contact me it'll be a nice surprise. For now, I ended up getting 2000 nosler 158g JHP handgun sporting bulk pack from Midway. I was shocked that it was in stock. Shipping was only $13. Yessss, I can shoot my 686 soon. It is mad at me for keeping it in the safe for so long. Not my fault. I couldn't get components to make ammo to feed it.
