How do you fellows load the 358429 Keith bullet in a .357 case? I've just started casting this bullet.

I shoot the Lyman #358156 bullet which is a bit lighter in weight with
14.0 gr. of A2400. Probably start at maybe 12.5 gr. and work up. Should
be able to use 14.0 gr. but work up to it.

I do shoot a 158gr.gc bullet with 11.7gr of 2400 in the 357 and its a real good shooting load and no leading. think Ill have to try 358156 in the 357 I have loaded it in the 38 with 4gr of Bullseye and it shoots well and leading hasn't been a problem my wife likes it in her Ruger 101. Randy

I also like the 358156 but am trying to find a use for the Keith bullet besides in a 38/44 load.

I crimp that case over the front driving band.    If you don't do that
trust me you're in for problems.

That bullet should never have been designed to be as long as it is.

Should be fine in 686 and K frame.    Gives headaches in N frames
though.

Lyman manuals note seating some bullets deeper in their .357 data. The problem is some of these bullets were designed for .38 spls. and not the .357 mags.

That is indeed the problem with the 358429. It was intended for the
N frame shooting a high powered .38 Spl.   

That bullet gave me fits with my model 28 and 27.

But, it shot really nice with 13.5 gr of 2400 as that's what I shot it
with.   I also shot a lot of these in .38 Spl cases with 5.0 gr of
Unique.

Rex, that was 13.5 gr in a .357 case.   Someone on here (think it was
Paul) was shooting that in .38 Spl cases.   I was afraid to try that one
so stayed with the .357 case.

I shot a lot of the 5.0 gr of Unique in .38 Spl cases at the range.
These I shot in a model 66.
