Looking for some info on some cheaper .357 bullets for the yeti. Preferably not cast bullets unless they are coated. I see Missouri bullets has a 135 grain hi tek coated bullet around .08 a bullet. I’d hate to buy a 500 count of them if they won’t feed or cycle reliably.. also how about berry’s plated bullets or a Speer 158 gr? Would a 125 gr bullet feed reliably in the yeti? Looking for $.15 or cheaper a bullet and reasonable accuracy.. Just seeing if anyone has experience with any of these bullets or possibly other options.

I just loaded up my first test batch with 158 gr XTP’s . I’ll report back when I see how they feed.

Watch the front edge of mag. Mine would scrape there before feed ramps and nose up too much. Cleaned up with file and then shortened COAL until fed. Post up the mag you are using and someone using the same mag will offer more specific advice.

I’m using a PRI Mag for my 358 bullets and feeding has been great. Do the shorter .357 bullets like to be center fed, or will doublestack in pri mag work? Looking forward to how the xtp bullets work out for you and what mag works best with them.

Double stack works for XTP. You may or may not need to shorten feed lips. The COAL is shorter to keep out of lands so the base will pop up inline with bore sooner on feeding depends on chamfer and throat and feed ramps. Biggdawg are typically well sorted. The XTP acts like a flat point and you may need to open up diameters of ramps.

I finally managed to get to the range and play with the XTP's. They did not want to feed from my PRI mag, and like a dummy I left my Bushmaster mags at the house. I gave up after about five, and single fed them. They shot great, just didn't like to feed. As soon as I get a moment to load up some more I'll head back with a single stack and see if I have any more luck.

Will these work for the Yeti?

http://www.brazosprecision.com/38-158gr-Round-NoseBevel-BaseGroove-664ct-00632bullet_p_18.html

or these

http://www.brazosprecision.com/9mm-147gr-Round-NoseBevel-BaseNo-Groove-710ct-0059bullet_p_44.html

Some of brazos can be custom sized, some of the 9mm can be sized from .355-.358 and others to 0.357

I noticed that manufacturers are starting to make bullets for the 350 legend. Since the legend has a . 355 diameter, these may be legitimate options for the yeti. I saw a Hornady 165 grain and I believe another brand in a 170 grain. I know they are not cheap but may be another option. Have you guys seen any of these?

I’ve seen them, and have contemplated picking up some of the 170 grains to test. I just haven’t gotten around to it yet. I will one day.

I think you'll have issues using any none jacketed bullet that comes out of the barrel over 2k fps
