357 Magnum Bullets

357 Magnum Bullets for Reloading

This page contains 357 magnum bullets used by reloaders who load their own rounds. If you're looking for something ready to shoot, please head to our 357 magnum ammo page.

The 357 Magnum is one of the most popular handgun cartridges ever created. Introduced by Smith & Wesson in 1935 as an improvement on the 38 Special, its case is approximately .12 inches longer than its predecessor – yet it can deliver up to three times greater energy. A fine choice for hunting, self-defense, and recreational shooting, it’s no wonder why even non-shooters know this whopper of a revolver cartridge by name.

It only stands to reason you should find a wide selection of 357 Mag bullets for reloading. 357 Mag bullets commonly weigh between 125 and 180 grains, although load data for even lighter .357 diameter bullets are available and 200 grain gas check bullets are often used for hunting. The heaviest 357 Mag loads can exert over 1,000 ft lbs of energy when fired out of a rifle barrel, putting the revolver round on par with the 223 Rem.

Full metal jackets are suitable for target practice as well as hunting light game when you want to minimize meat damage, and LRNs make especially economical target loads. High-tech monolithic copper bullets by manufacturers like Barnes are a great way to modernize the 357 Mag for compliance with laws that ban toxic projectiles.

    Product was fine. Original Boxes were split down the corners and beaten up.

    Product appeared to be fine. Pain in the rear having to pick up bullets in the drive way while taping the original boxes back together. Your box was adequate. Originals could have been taped up before putting them in your box.

    Wideners and Berry's deliver!

    Berry's makes a great product that performs well in the press and also on the range. With the current shortage of ammunition, and zero availability on 38 SPC and 357 Mag, having projectiles to replenish my training rounds is invaluable. Widener's was in stock and delivered fast. Now if if I could find more primers and powder, I would be even more satisfied.

  3. Zero Bullets 38 Special / 357 Magnum (.357" Diameter) 125 Grain JSP - 500 Projectiles


    In stock

    Cost Per Bullet 12.0¢ per bullet
    Bullet Weight 125 Grain
    Bullet Caliber 357 Mag, 38 Special
    Quantity 500
    Bullet Type Jacketed Soft-Point (JSP)
    Manufacturer Zero Bullet
    Manufacturer SKU 103
    These .357 inch diameter projectiles from Zero Bullets have an exposed soft lead tip at the crown of their copper jacket for a balance between expansion and penetration that makes them great for self-defense loads or even light game hunting. These bullets weigh 125 grains and are great for versatile use with both .38 Special and .357 Magnum calibers. In addition, Zero Bullets manufactures these Alabama-made bullets with a toothed cannelure on the jacket for proper crimping which prevents the jostling of the projectile from its casing while in the cylinder.

    Excellent product

    I weighed and measured these bullets for consistency. Will purchase again.

    Great looking bullets

    Bullets look great and as described. My only problem is finding load data for jacketed soft point bullets. Other than that I'm pleased with my purchase of 125 gr .375 jsp bullets.

    Review by Mike M (Posted on 5/29/2023)

  4. Berry's .357 Diameter Bullets - 158 Grain Target HP – 1000 Count


    In stock

    Cost Per Bullet 12.5¢ per bullet
    Bullet Weight 158 Grain
    Bullet Caliber 357 Mag, 38 Special
    Quantity 1000
    Bullet Type Hollow-Point (HP)
    Manufacturer Berry's
    Manufacturer SKU 63197
    This is not loaded ammunition. These are component bullets, and they are solely intended for purchase by handloaders.

    One thousand .357” diameter 158 grain bullets always make a great investment. Whether you love loading the loud and proud 357 Mag or its older brother the 38 Special, Berry’s has got you all taken care of!

    This bullet is not designed for personal protection and is incapable of terminal expansion. The target hollow point is engineered to supply the accuracy sharpshooters need to do their best work. These bullets feature supremely concentric electroplated copper jackets, and their voidless lead cores only do more to enhance superior gyroscopic stability. Berry’s bullets are restruck following the electroplating process to ensure a solid bond between their cores and jackets, as well as their standardized dimensions.

    Whether you use these bullets to load 1.580" OAL 357 Mag or 1.430" OAL 38 Spl, Berry’s warns against loading to a higher muzzle velocity than 1,250 fps – any faster and you risk component separation accompanied by weakened accuracy. These bullets are compatible with data for jacketed or cast bullets of the same weight and profile, and you may use either a roll or taper crimp.

    good projectile

    tried 2 propellants. CFE pistol and v3n37 loaded to just less than 1100fps based on the Hornady xtp data triangulated with Berry FP. I indexed off the XTP since the profile of the HP is very close and length of the projectile was only .001" off. They are clean to load, clean to shoot without the lube turnoff from lead, seat well, and are definitely accurate. For $.125 each I think I'll shoot these for a while
