Hello. I just aquired an aftermarket barrel for my Glock 27 in 357 Sig. I was wondering about a few things.

1. I've read somethings about different 357 Sig dies...soemthign about scratches on the brass. What brand would you recommend? RCBS, Hornaday, so on...

2. Any pet loads you would like to share? (I know, always check the books first) Oh, let me know for what gun you shoot it in.

3. Any place sell once fired 357 Sig brass? I saw a post somewhere (Maybe at Glocktalk) about a place on the east coast...that was selling it cheap. Just wondering.

4. Any other advice, words of caution, words of wisdom for loading the 357 Sig.

Thanks.

Midway has cases.

Keep thinking "case neck tension".

Use Alliant Power Pistol and jacketed bullets.

I don't reload .357 Sig, but I have reloaded thousands of a similar round, .400 Cor-Bon. Bullet setback should be a concern with any handgun bottleneck, due to the brevity of the neck. I solved the setback problem in .400 Cor-Bon (after blowing up a G21) by canneluring all bullets that I reload for .400 Cor-Bon and .40 Super, and roll-crimping into the cannelure.

I had trouble with RCBS sizing dies scratching my .400 Cor-Bon brass. Sent back three. They all did the same thing. Went to Lee, with no problems. Still use the RCBS seater/crimper die, with wonderful results.

I'm "green" when it comes to reloading, says my buddy....but how do you "cannalure" a bullet?

You put the bullet in a cannelure tool, turn the handle, and you have a cannelure around the bullet. You then roll crimp your case into the cannelure. Corbin Manufacturing makes a nice canneluring tool for about $60.

You can visit my site at http://home.earthlink.net/~petej55

I have a couple articles that get into reloading a bit, including url pointers to Corbin, West Coast Bullets, etc.

If you then have more questions, let me know.

good luck,
pete
