Happiness is 1000 new Starline 357 mag cases sitting in 100 rd MTM boxes. The four extra cases are a nice bonus.
Any more when it comes to handgun brass I don't buy anything but Starline. I could get that way for rifle brass over time too. 45-70 is already that way.
So what did you stick in the end. Make of mold weight and design. And if you do truly use all 2 lbs. That is 7000 to the pound times 2 equals 14000 grains. Divide by 1000 and you are putting 14 grains per load. Hefty load for light to med weight bullets and at max and over for heavier bullets. JMO
What are you shooting them out of? Inquiring minds want to know.
Load is an NOE 160 WFN on top of 14 gr of I4227. It is being fired in a Win 1892 with a 24" barrel. Gun likes the load. Looking at load data and extrapolating I could probably go up a little bit don't see a need.
I start small then do a large sample, the larger sample let's me know if that's what I truly want.
if it pans out then I go ahead and load up a big pile.
right now I have about 3,000 158gr rnfp's sitting on top of 7 grs of herco.
it's not a light load and it isn't H-110, it's pretty loud in the revolver but it isn't meant for the revolver anyway.
The Lee version of that bullet is a favorite in .357 Mag over 16.3 gr of H110. Very
accurate, not quite max load, half a step back. Good bullet design, IME. I have
had good results with IMR4227 in .44 Mag, not yet tried it in .357.
