My local gun shop has 140 grain fmj bullets but I'm having trouble finding a load using Unique. Is there not one? :?

I'll have to look again. I took a quick look tonight and thought they were 140 grain. Perhaps I misread the tag.

I've been using Hornady 140 Gr. XTP's for a long time now. It is an excellent bullet weight for .357, & performs great. But, I've never loaded Unique in any of My .357 loads, only in .38 Spl's. I get a lot of My reloading info. from the manufacturers websites. Surely the Hornady manual would list a starting load for 140 Gr. bullets.

I'll have to check their site, Jim. The only reference I have right now, other than this site, is the Lee book.

I found this at Sierra edition V: 140 Sierra JHC, Unique----8.2 = 1,150 FPS
8.6 = 1,200 FPS
9.0 = 1,250 FPS Max load.

Thanks XLCH. The bullets I looked at were fmj. Would the load be the same for jhc? JHC = jacketed hollow ??

i raid this site every once in a while. this feller has scanned or down loaded 7 or 8 dfferent load manuals and you can either open them up or down load them. http://www.ssrsi.org/sr1/Weapon/reload.htm

its off source and some of it is out of date so always use caution////////////

I think if you start with the starting load and work your way up you will be okay, they don’t recommend reducing the starting load.
