I love my 357 rifle. Its my most favorite of all the guns I own. Mine is a Marlin with the ballard rifling. It shoots jacketed and lead just the same.
For you guys having trouble with your seating plug deforming your bullets here is how I solved the problem. I went to the tool store and bought a 10/32 all thread rod. I cut off a piece about 4" long. Then I ground a taper on one end that fits inside the hollow point of the bullet. No more damaged bullets. I even cut a slot on the top for a screwdriver with a hacksaw. You adjust it just like the regular seating plug.
Some people think an English Bulldog looks great... many more people can't tell one end from the other, even by smell.
A village in Kenya called. They want their idiot back.
