Reloading for the .357 Magnum
The .357 Magnum cartrigde is one that I have little experience reloading. I recently purchased a Ruger GP100, and I have reloaded 50 rounds using 6.5 grains of Unique with a 158 grain LSWC bullet and small pistol magnum primer. My first question is: Would it be okay to use the small pistol primer instead of the small pistol magnum primer? My second question is: Using the .357 case, Unique powder, and 158 grain LSWC bullet, would it be okay to load the longer .357 case to .38 Special specifications? Thanks!
