I have the same rifle as the OP with a Redfield 2X7 and dig it. A friend used it last season to bag a Mule Deer out in the open desert country just a bit south. He used a Hornady 180g XTP HP over W296 at 120 yards, DRT.

Alliant for Blue Dot recommends a non-magnum primer when loading for .357mag but the Lyman manual says they used a magnum primer for their test loads.

I did notice unburnt powder using the SP primers as recommend with both my rifle and revolver but I have not loaded any with the magnum primers to test as yet.
