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.

    Please note: This isn’t loaded ammunition. Component bullets are basically fishing sinkers until they have cases, propellant and primers.

    Home cooking is always better than takeout. Handloaded ammo is always better than the factory stuff, too! If you prefer to put a personal touch on every round you fire, then you’re going to love what Berry’s is up to.

    At 125 grains and .357” in diameter, this makes the perfect bullet for either 38 Special or 357 Magnum. The bullet is well balanced thanks both to its swaged lead core and electroplated copper jacket, and its flat meplat is great for stamping holes into paper targets.

    An electroplated jacket isn’t just evenly distributed. It also leaves no part of the core exposed to propellant gasses, which prevents the evaporation of toxic lead during ignition. Berry’s restrikes their TMJ bullets once they have plated them, creating a durable bond in the process.

    These training bullets are .518" long. Loading them to velocities in excess of 1,250 fps may lead to core/jacket separation. Plated bullets are not recommended for firearms with ported barrels or compensators.
