Greetings all,

Anybody do any work with this cartridge utilizing 357 Max brass necked down and sized in a 221 FB Die?

Looking to try something like this in a Contender pistol.

Thanks for any info.

Regards, Ray

Gary Reeder has a 224x 357 Maximum, although I don't know the case dimensions, the advertized performance is that of a 222 Rem. There is also a 224 R-C Maxi which is a 357 max formed in a 222 die. It yields a 222 with a .218 length neck instead of the .313 length.

Hope this helps
