    Unique or H110 and RN .357 Mag in Wilts, Somerset or Dorset

    Guys I am trying to work up a .357 Magnum load for my Marlin to do stupid distances (300 Yards).

    Does anyone have any Unique or H110 powder that I can buy or trade for?

    I will not need very much.

    Also if you happen to have any .357 magnum bullets that are not Semi Wad Cutters I would be grateful to give them a whirl. Id even consider a Mould and make my own.

    Good find leadpig! Thank you very much.

    Can anyone help me out with a spot of slower burning powder to drive them?

    I'm sure I've got some Unique you can have. Is this for the long range comp? Have you asked the other guys what they use powder wise? You'll probably want an FMJ bullet for cranking up a hot load too.

    Hi Alex

    Yes. There is a range date next month at Bisley I want to use to test some loads.

    Ash uses a 180gr pistol bullet that can no longer be bought over here with N110.

    I know a slower burning powder is key to stabilising my bullet. I think the Jacketed 158Gr will do the job with the right powder. Last time at 300m my bullets were just tumbling.

    If you are coming to club in the next couple of weeks I would be grateful for a pinch or two.

    Cheers!

    unique is to fast for long range try some 2400 Winchester 296 or Vectan sp3

    Viht 340 or Viht 3N37 would be a good choice - Alliant 2400 would also be a good choice of powder.
    A cast lead boolit will work and save money on jacketed bullets.

    Cheers guys. it was 2400 I used last time. Maybe I just need more of it!

    If I stay with a 158gr bullet in either jacketed or hardcast, what would you reckon on a loading?

    16.5g of h110 makes a fair pop
    especially out of a 6" barrel
