    Sure do. Remember the cartridge was designed to headspace off the mouth, not the shoulder like a rifle round. It can headspace off the shoulder, but that was not the intent. I load a 125 gr RNFP .358 hard cast bullet sized to .356 and launched a little under 1300fps. No problems so far

    I think there is still a lot of different opinions about where the 357 headspaces at from what I've read about it.I'll be loading 124 gr.JHP Montana Gold bullets,I haven't decided what powder to start with.I've got one of those "single caliber load books" coming because my books don't have a very wide variety of loads in them.I cast 124 gr. Lee TL also so I guess that could be a possibility.I'm trying to see what others like and have had success with.Although it doesn't seem like there are very many 357 Sig shooters here.morayman............
