Sorry if this is a repeat question, but I'm new to reloading and I noticed something about my 357 mag loads (6.7 grains of Unique (max load), regular small pistol primer, and a 158 grain LSWC), compared to the factory loads from Wal Mart (Remington, Winchester). The factory loads have MUCH more power, recoil and are much louder. I've never chrono'd my loads, but I'd assume the velocity is much higher, as well as the pressure. Well I shoot 357 mags cause I like a gun that kicks, and one that will put a BIG hole in whatever I shoot (except for paper, obviously). Would switching to a magnum powder and a magnum primer give me the "kick" I'm looking for? Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
