Excellent Plinking BulletsI use these bullets in light loaded .357 Magnum cartridges and the results are outstanding. The bullets arrived before the estimated delivery date and were in very good condition. I weighed a few and they were exactly 158 grains on my scale.
Some tips for good results with these bullets are to lightly lubricate them with Lee Liquid Alox and let dry overnight. Keep them over light powder charges and apply a medium roll crimp right in the crimp groove. I use 3.9 grains of Hodgdon Titegroup and Winchester Small Pistol Primers. You can use either small pistol or small pistol magnum primers. Both will yield good results.
I will purchase more and have a blast at the range. Pun intended.

Weight issueThe 158 .38 cal actually weigh 138gn. and the 240 .44 cal actually weight 208gn.
Wish someone else would have reviewed them first so I could have saved my money. Anyone who doesn't weigh there bullets before reloading should do so.

What size are the .44's ? .429 or .430? Also, what is the actual grain weight? A customer review suggests that the actual weight is less than 240 gr. which is listed in "specs" because "details" describe the bullets as having hollow-point tips.
