Bullets for the 357 sig.

Has anyone out there used .357 bullets to load 357 sig. rounds?
In my 357 sig. reloading book in the Hodgdon Powder section it shows a load for Nosler 135 gr. IPSC using .357 Dia. bullets.
I've used these and they work real good. Anyone else used these, or anything like it?

MontanGold 125gr or most of their 9mm JHP will work fine. So does any bullet w/ a TC proflie like teh Berry's or Ranier 124gr FP, XTP, Sierra JHP, Nosler 115gr, etc. I have used them all at one time or another & they all work well.

I have never tried a .357" jacketed bullet for the sig. For cast bullets the .357" should work very well though.

Just because I had some, I gave the 135gr GDSB a try in the 357sig. Run @ 1300fps, pretty good shooting, nice terminal perf. on wetpack. I think a really good wt for an all around bullet choice, but no one is making it for the 357sig.

10 grains of Bluedot and 125 Grain HP, either Remington from Midway, or Montana Gold 357 sig bullet, both work great.
Accurate and extremly flat shooting, and LOUD in my C Glocks.

Thanx. guys.
The reason I was asking is the other day I picked up some 158 gr. Horn XTP's to load some 357 mag. By mistake I got XTP-FP, After looking at them I thought WoW that bullet in a 125 gr. would be perfect for the 357 sig.
I wish Hornady would make the XTP-FP in a 9mm .355

If yo uhave a chronograph & so,e reloading exp, you could get those to work as I noted w/ the GDSB. Pressures will be higher, so it's start low & work up thing.
