lapua currently only makes 9mm and 32sw lwc in loaded ammunition for handguns. most likely someone used lapua brass and rolled their own. illegal to sell loaded ammunition without an ffl as a business enterprise

Fresh box box labeled Cartridge Factory Lapua LTD Sticker on end of box .357 Mag GENDARMERIE 10,2 g 158 grs E367 SJFN 4319215. Then there is a UPC sticker on the other end. These are actually the best looking cartridges I've seen. The box is factory sealed. I can send pictures. JMB

that would be older than current production. lapua used to make a lot more loaded ammo. so its likely from way back

Lapua makes (and made) good ammo. As the man said, they stopped loading 357 some time back. If the ammo looks good, I'd shoot it. Hell, I am shooting 70 yr old rifle ammo.

long as there is no obvious corrosion it should go bang as if it was new. modern non-corrosive ammo is very stable. even the older stuff can last a hundred years
