    I realize there may be better powders for .357 Sig but I have 8 lbs. available and want to put it to good use.

    Looking for a load for Berry's 124g CP bullets and AA #5.

    ...and what do your reloading manuals contain?

    Well, according to the Accurate 3.5 data, you've got about 0.9 gr from start to max for FMJ, and about 1.1 gr. for lead at that weight.

    I haven't loaded any Berry's yet, but they do advertise running on the low-end of the jacketed load info.

    Hope that helps. You can download their v.3.5 load data from their site.

    Not much! the AA manual has one load reference for copper plated and not specific to Berry's. But I feel your real question is "did I look at a reloading manual?" and yes I do but there are plenty of other proven loads that are not in the manual.

    Thanks.
