357 is not a complicated cartridge. I suggest paying attention to these 3 things:
1) size to the diameter of the throat.
2) the nose length must be able to fit in your cylinder(s.)
3) the front band should stop just short of the beginning of the throat (there's usually a tapered section just in front of the case mouth).
I used recovered range lead. 1/3 cast bullets 2/3 CMJ's
I suggest specifying wheelweight but anticipate that your alloy will drop out a few grains heavier than wheelweight. So if you specified 210 grains it would probably drop out 215 in your alloy -- just a guess, anyway. Also your diameters may drop out a few tenths smaller.
I read on your site that any design can be tumble lubed and not just the "tumble lube" designs.
Based on my limited experience with tumble lube, that has been true.
