357 mag loads

Recommended Posts

I am looking for 357 loads to use out of a 6" barrel revolver.  I have Exreme 125gr plated bullets and Winchester 296 powder and Alliant 2400.  I am using 296 with a 20gr charge.  I can't find any loads for 2400.  Can anyone help?  Thanks

Lyman recipe book has 2400 loads for 357

I followed the 2400 loads recommended in my Lyman book with great results. Loaded some on the hotter end of the spectrum and was getting hits on a half size uspsa target at 100 yards. Revolvers are a ton of fun.

Be aware using a plated bulled as you are requires a velocity threshhold, X-treme is 1200 fps max on standard plated and 1500fps on double (thick plate). You didnt specify whether you have standard or double plate but 20 gr of 296 under a 125 should be giving you well over 1200 fps so you might wanna double check that and keep your loads within the max velocity. In 9mm major I drove some 124's at about 1375 and they came apart and tumbled. Also I always had better accuracy with 296 vs 2400 in all my .357 Magnum revolvers.
