Speer's 158 GR

Ok not sure what type of bullet this is. I Weighted them and they are 158 GN and I was told they were Speer's. Any idea?

I would say a 158gr .38 Special LRN or a 158gr Lead SWC 9mm.

Those kind of look like Remmys, but most look so similar, they could be Winchesters or even Speers. 158gr JSP. I don't believe they would be Sierras, not the right look.

Got many of them? Are they indeed .357?

I compared them to some Speer JSPs that I had. Not even close. At least the Speers that I have has the jackets extending much further up so that only the very tip of the soft point is exposed. The MagTechs that I have are sorta close but they have kind of a funky little ring further down from the cannelure. But, I had a few Remingtons laying around and they look EXACTLY like your bullet.
