View Full Version : Good supplier for 38/357 bullets?

I've been using Berry's and Precisiondelta exclusively for 9, 40, and 45. Just got myself a set of 38/357 die for the Dillon550, since I plan to put a good amount of ammo through a newly acquired Colt Python. Probably more 38 specials than 357's.

Who's a good supplier for jacketed/semi-jacketed/plated bullets in this caliber? Neither places I usually use have a lot of choices.

I am pretty sure I can use the same bullets for both calibers, and the differences are the powder charge, OAL, and crimp. I use Hodgon's reloading data website as a starting point, and probably will use the crimp measurements from a couple of factory loads as reference as well.

Is there anything else I should consider?

Your comments will be greatly appreciated.

Roze Distribution carries Zero brand bullets, which seem to to have a good following. I am going to give them a try.

The problem w/ most plated, no crimp goove. So Roze or MontanaGold would get my vote for jacketed. Me, I shoot lead bullets about 90% of the time in all my revolvers.
