    Yeah, thanks....

    I would think they can handle the pressures of a .357 ?
    What profiles are you referring to?
    357 are not pointed nose, at least fromm what I've seen....but I can see a problem with a wad cutter.

    ok first the winnie 92 is very strong. so no problem there. most 92s do not feed wadcutters. with 357 cases and jacketed bullets. some bullets with a wide meplat will not chamber. but the Hornandy 158 gr xtps. no problem. with lead I use the missouri powder coated truncated cone bullets they work great. you gotta try different bullets to see what yours likes. the missouri bullets are low cost fun shooting. hope this helps!
