I've reloaded since the 70's. I merely selected that round as an over the counter item as it's apparent that 99% of shooters don't.

Great propellant! It isn't the best at powder flow. but the loads hit very hard.

I know a lot of guys that like it. I bought a pound back in 2008 and still have half of it. I get better speeds and accuracy with 2400. BUT - if you want a huge fireball and massive blast wave blowing your hair back, this is the powder for you.


By the way, since this is a .357 mag thread, Alliant pulled their data for BD and 125's.

Yes, it does have a lot of flash.

I recall BB 125gr doing 1500+fps in a 4" Sp101 and 1300+ from the same gun using 158gr . Pretty decent in a small frame revolver. Even their 158gr .38sp was pushing 1100fps. This was on the Gunblast site.

I don't have a chrono yet, but the 125gr Barnes .357 is HOT. It's noticeably hotter than Hornady 125gr XTP, which is noticeably hotter than Remington 125gr SJHP.

Wow! Is that factory loaded from Barnes?

Warp, I don't doubt they're hot, but more flash and boom and felt recoil don't necessarily mean it's going faster than another load.

See my previous post about blue dot.

I meant the OP, it even said FACTORY in the title. Somehow overlooked it.

Barrel length? Pre-lock?

6-inch barrel, and I got the revolver back in 1986.
