After I got off work today I started stuffing .38 special cases. My youngest son needs some ammo for a CCW course he's taking next month so I loaded a hundred rounds of Berry's 148 grain hollow-based wadcutters. He used some of this ammo in his revolver the last time he was home and it proved very accurate in his gun.
This load features whatever brass you've got on hand, a standard primer and 2.7 grains of Bullseye under the Berry's plated wadcutter. It gives about 650 fps and is a very accurate load in every revolver I've ever shot.
I also loaded a bunch of 158 grain semi-wadcutters. I use 4.3 grains of Unique over a middling soft bullet. That load runs about 890 fps and it's also one of those loads that is very accurate regardless of the revolver used. I loaded about 150 of those before I ran out of bullets. Tomorrow morning I'm going to get out the lead pot and cast some more bullets. I seem to use a lot of those Lee TL358158 cast bullets.
Now, it's Happy Hour.
