i did, my rifle wouldn't throw em well at all, and i got some pretty bad copper fouling. i did not shoot any at a deer, i wouldn't dare hunt with such an inaccurate combination.
having said that, all rifles are different, maybe yours will stack um in. at 20 ya could try it.

Anybody try Speer's 35 caliber 180 grain bullet in a 357 Max? I just got a box and haven't had the chance to go testing. It looks to be more aerodynamic than a flat point.

I believe Steinel uses the 180gr Speer HCFN in their ammo. Several of us have at least tried the bullet ourselves. I can't find an accurate load for either the 180gr or 220gr HCFN bullets in the 357 Max, 35 Rem or 358 Win 😞

Thanks, Dinny

I reload and shoot 348 Win, 358 Win, 6.5 Grendel, 30-06 Springfield, 300 BLK, 44 Mag, 357 Maximum, 9mm, 45 ACP, 45 Colt, 225 Win and 35 Rem

The SPEER 180 is good but as the 180 XTP is on the fragile side that Speer is on the tough side and if vel drop below 1800 ish fps its not gonna open up without larger resistance in its path.
