Someone posted some data here about using Hodgdon Titegroup in .357 Sig. It is the only place on the interwebs I have found anyone admitting they used that powder in that cartridge. I load .40 with Titegroup so I had some and I decided to give it a try.

I have to say this is an EXTREMELY cost effective load for .357 Sig. I was able to load for about $0.12-0.16 per round depending on cost of bullet

Here are the load details (USE AT YOUR OWN RISK):

Firearm: Springfield XD 357 Service 4" barrel
Primer: CCI Small Pistol (#500)
Powder: Hogdgon Titegroup 5.3 gr
Bullet: Accura Outdoors 124gr TMJ RNFP 9mm
Lee Precision Dies
Heavy Crimp with Lee FCD
Mixed Brass (all 2x fired at least)
COAL = 1.140"

Velocity @ ~5 yds was around 1370 fps

I only loaded up a few cause I wasn't sure if it would even work so I didn't shoot for accuracy, but I should be able to get back out in a couple of weeks so I will load 'em, up and and report back.
