    .357 148gr DEWC Hogdon HI-SKOR 700X

    Hornady app says to use 38 special data for loading cast bullets for 357 magnum.
    In the Hornady app says IMR 700X should use 1.9 to 2.8 grains.
    Lee book says IMR 700X should use 3.1 to 3.5 grains for 38 special.
    Lee book says IMR 700X should use 3.0 to 3.0 (yes the same) for 148 grain wad cutters in .357
    I find this confusing.

    Should 148gr LHBWC load the same as 148gr DEWC?

    .357 148gr DEWC Hogdon HI-SKOR 700X

    Yes. Use the same data for both the double ended and hollow base wad cutters. As with most things, data is all over the place. What brand bullets do you have that you are trying to load? Hornady data for lead bullets is usually quite low because their lead bullets are very soft. with what you listed there, 3.0gr seems to be a good place to start.

    Thank you. I will look up the brand when I get home. I was using Blue Dot but that's rarer than hen's teeth and I'm not going to pay scalping prices. I bought the 700X as the last bottle of powder (other than Pyrodex) at Cabela's in Noblesville IN yesterday. I had researched prior to going in to know it would work.

    When I run out of this brand of cast lead I did find a local manufacturer who casts and powder coats large quantities and sells in 500 round boxes (or larger). I let Wes know but IDK if he sells cast bullets.

    Wes has carried cast bullets on occasion, but not regularly. He normally carries plated bullets for plinking ammo. Being a small business, Wes only carries stuff that will sell quickly. He doesn’t have the space to stock stuff that will sit on the shelf for years, because of limited interest.

    I'm not pushing. I just don't want to risk peeing in Wes' soup bowl by mentioning the manufacturer if Wes sells them too.
