    I agree with Alpo. My father gave me 5lb's of bullseye. I shoot the heck out of it and the Unique as well. Both are goog, but I do prefer the Unique.

    You mean 158s? Hdy offers 158s and 180s in the XTP for the .357 mag..

    I shoot .357/.38 gallery rifle (lever action Marlin). For .357 I load 4.2 gr. Hogogen Titegroup behind a 158 grain round nose flat point head. I've used it on targets effectively out to 50 yards; speed is about 1100 fps. I realise that rifles and handguns have different balistics, but this is just a for what it's worth.
