What are some really hot factory loads for a .357 mag? Just for grins, I'm going to try some of Buffalo Bore's stuff, but are there any others that are particularly hot? I found these http://www.sportsmansguide.com/product/index/ppu-357-mag-158-grain-sjhp-50-rounds?a=1584524
and they claim 1608 fps with a 158 grain bullet. After visiting the website though, I find out it is using a 10" test barrel. I'm sure my 4" revolver results won't be nearly as spectacular.
This isn't for any special purpose, just for fun.
