My 1894 .357 barrel slugs at .356+ I have some hardcast .358 158 gr that I bought for my .38 and have since cast some lighter weight bullets (121gr & 132gr) what do you think would be the proper size to use? .358, 359 or 360 The bullets I cast are from WW, water dropped and have a BHN of 20+ none are GC

Is yours a ballard or microgroove barrel? My "Big 5" special ballard cut barrel slugs at .358, so I run .360 sized bullets through it. You should be fine at .359, but I tend to err on the side of bigger is typically better.
