Re: .357 cast bullets

Thanks for the reply, just trying to use these up and buy softer bullets when these are gone, any recommendations on a load that will work?

.357 cast bullets

I got a bunch of bevel base bullets at .357 diameter, brinnel hardness of 15, I'm wanting to shoot these in a 357 revolver and Henry single shot, I'm thinking they got to run above 25,000psi to seal the bore well, does that sound correct to you cast shooters? this is me beginning with cast loads.

Re: .348 Wildcats

Having JES ,ream the barrel to .348,
and LEE make a set of dies .348/30,
seems relatively simple, with no alteration to the chamber seems cheap enough, and kind of neat.
long enough case neck, can be trimmed to maintain C.O.L. if needed, I like the idea too.

I have some .377 fngc bullets to try in my Winchester, using LEE dies the bullet bulges the case slightly to seating depth,would using a full length sizing die from a 38-55 prevent that?

Re: Coonan Arms

The Coonan comes with an extra spring to allow 38 specials, which is where I would run mostly.

Would not rule out a 38 super or a 357 sig, if they were more available around me.

scope,vs,peep, vs red dot

I am wanting optics for my HENRY SINGLE SHOT, a 1-4 x 20mm scope would be nice, however would making cocking the hammer more difficult. Question is how do the red dot and peep compare in practical accuracy?, they would probably give a sleeker look on such a rifle.
