    Lyman 358311

    Anyone make and shoot the Lyman 358311 round nose bullet in a
    357 magnum?
    I bought about 250 of them at a estate sale, now lubing them, sized 358, and want to
    shoot.

    They'll shoot. I generally use SWC's or RF's these days but I have loaded more than a few hundred of the 358-311. 7.0 grains of Unique made for an accurate, mid level load, while 15.0 grains of 2400 makes for plenty of oomph. were it I, I'd load 'em up with 7.0 grains of Unique and enjoy.

    They are known to be a very accurate bullet, if well cast and sized to fit your gun......

    be sure to make a dummy round and see that it fits the chambers ok- I have a Ruger SP101 that requires the bullet to be seated just a smidge shorter than usual.
