357 Magnum Bullets for ReloadingThis 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.

Armscor is earning themselves quite a reputation here in America. Their Rock Island Armory pistols fill a nice niche for people who don’t want to auction off vital organs just to be able to afford a 1911. Their 22 TCM cartridge has promise, even if most of the people asking about it only want to know if they can fire it in a firearm chambered for 22 LR. (No.) And their component bullets, which are produced according to precise tolerances, consistently weighted, and deliver good accuracy at the range, are sought after by handloaders throughout the country.
This meaty slab of .357” diameter bullets is just the ticket for handloaders specializing in 38 Special or 357 Mag. With 1,500 bullets you be able to load 250 six-shot cylinders worth of ammo, and as full metal jackets they’re at once clean shooting and economically designed. Armscor draws a concentric jacket for what is ostensibly a target grade bullet, so your shots will benefit from satisfactory rotational stability and resultant flat trajectories. Buy ten of these cases of bullets and use them to ballast your canoe!
