    Does anyone know of a replacement or alternative for Sierra .357 170 gr JHC bullets. I'm pretty sure they've been discontinued. I've looked everywhere, and I can't find anything in 170 gr except some cast bullets.

    If you want heavier than the standard 158 gr, it looks like the Hornady 180 gr XTP is about your only option. If I recall correctly, Speer offered a 170 gr Gold Dot a while back, but it appears to have been discontinued.

    I ordered some cast Keith style SWC that were advertised as 170 gr, but weighed closer to 162 gr. Close enough for me!

    I thought Speer had one, but it looks like they may have discontinued theirs also. Hornady did away with their 180 gr. silhouette and only offer a 180 gr. XTP.

    Sierra offers a 180 gr. (Not sure if FP or HP.)
