Anybody shot any of this, or reloaded the brass? Local farm/feed store has this in stock. It is the only 357 I have been able to find in quite awhile, aside from expensive personal-defense stuff.

GECO is top notch. Assuming a reasonable price, buy it. Their 9mm NATO spec stuff is loaded hot.

Shot it in 9mm and 32 ACP.

Good stuff.

Part of RWS/Dynamit -IIRC. Good stuff. I have shot a lot in 9x19.

I haven't shot the loaded ammunition, however I have reloaded the brass from range pickup mixed lots, and it reloads and shoots as well as anything else.

I bought 1K of that .357mag ammo. Shoots pretty good. Seems to be full power.

Good Stuff! Full power but my guns like it. Have fired it in 9mm and 32 acp. I am sure their other ammo is good to go.

alot of people turn their nose up at in ignorance thinking it is some cheap foreign ammo. Little do they know. More for me

here in austria geco is a quite common used ammo.
most popular calibers a used: 9x19, .45acp, .38/.357spl, .22lr
the 9er in 124gr has more recoil/is bumpier than e.g. S&B 124gr ammo (imho the softest 9x19 available, at least in the cheapest ammo range for 95-124gr ammo).
good stuff, but AFAIK(!) i think the new one is made in hungary by what was formerly MFS. didn't get the whole story of this company-structure. i heard some opinions, that quality went down. for me, every ammo which goes bang without issues at reasonable prices is a good one. depends on your demands. so i can't help you with that.
they are known for having quite hard primers, some sport/bullseye shooters had problems with their light striker/firingpin springs.
geco brass is also popular by reloaders.

Went in and bought 4 boxes today. Fifty cents a round which is mothing to brag about, but cheaper than what little else
I have been able to find for quite awhile. Appears to have crimped primers, which seemed odd to me for a non-military
cartridge so-to-speak.

Bought some 9mm from PSA a few years back for iirc less than $10/box good shit I have 100 rounds left but phasing out of 9mm if I could find some .40 S&W for a good price I would be set

Just to concur, the 9mm i have shot was pretty accurate, decently hot, and 100% reliable in everything I shot it in from stars, to p 38s, to beretta 92, to my 1916 dwm luger... accuracy was above par as well. Beretta and luger coming in at around 1.5 to 2 inches at 25 yds....FWIW

I've heard mixed stuff about Geco but it's been mostly good reviews. I've honestly never shot it and am waiting for more word on it in .45acp and 5.56 before I try it.

I've used their .22LR ammo. I highly recommend that you avoid it unless shooting it in a bolt gun. Constant stuck cases and FTE with various semi autos.
