Default Trying to figure out what this. Ullet is called

It's got a copper jacket with a lead hollow point! Does that mean I need to use XTP reload data? Or jacketed bullet reload data? I've been reloading just lead bullets and founds these for 38/357 with some other reloading stuff at an auction but don't know what they are really called so I don't know what to use to reload then?

It is a semi-jacketed hollow point. You can use jacketed load data- with the correct weight.

The bearing surface of the bullet is what counts, not what is or is not exposed at the ends.

Typical SJHP for a .38/.357 revolver. Use JHP data. As with any data, you must reduce and work up a load. NEVER just load a max load and trust it to be safe. There are way too many variables to consider.

I've got the lee reloading manual and it has reload for a jacketed round! But I only have trail boss and bullseye powder! There a load for bullseye I can use for 158grain semi-jacketed hollow points for 357???

use the powder manufacterers website and see if they have a load data listing for it. most of them do. just use the bullet weight that you have and start at the lowest charge weight and work up as needed.

For .357 magnum loads, Bullseye is a poor choice.

2400, H110, 296, 4227 are all far better.

I use H110 exclusively in .357 and ,44 magnum loads. It;s never let me down.

Bullseye is one of the fastest powders available. The large case capacity of the .357 makes Bullseye not only a poor choice, but also a potetntially DANGEROUS choice. I like Blue Dot or W-296 for .357 Mag loads.

You can use Unique and do a passable job loading the 357 Mag. I cut my teeth many, many years ago loading the 357Mag with Unique and 125gr JHP's. Also, you'll not need a mag primer for Unique, for the other, slower powders you'll need a mag primer to touch off that heavy load of powder.
Blue Dot would also be a good choice but having used quite a few powders over the years I've always came back to Unique.

The hodgdon website has all kinds of reloading data. Real handy, and printable.
