  1. Anybody else having app issues with Digital Link? Mine won't open. I'm running it on an android motto g5s. I've restarted it a few times. I contacted competition electronics, they're checking into it.
  2. The 125s are Berry's flat point. I load them short so there's something for the case to hold on to. I'll post a picture.
  3. I've settled on 1.20 for the 160gr Bayou RN. And 1.125 for a Berry's 158gr FP.
  4. Oy vay, some of you guys are obsessive. Here's my 21 step to reloading 1. Tumble the brass 2. One shot of one shot 3. Load ammo Hey, I guess it's only 3 steps
  5. And the exact same load in my 627 Name: .38 Short Colt: 125gr Berry's flat point: Titegroup 4.0gr Star Line Case 627 Notes: S&W 627 5" barrel 1.075 oal Federal primer Star Line case Shots: 9 Average: 950 ft/s SD: 21 ft/s Min: 920 ft/s Max: 983 ft/s Spread: 63 ft/s Power Factor Average: 118 Power Factor Low: 115 Power Factor High: 122 Weight: 125.0 gr.
  6. Here's the .38 Short Colt load I used in my 5" 929. Name: .38 Short Colt: 125gr Berry's flat point: Titegroup 4.0gr Star Line Case 929 Notes: S&W 929 5" barrel 1.075 oal Federal primer Star Line case Shots: 6 Average: 1046 ft/s SD: 7 ft/s Min: 1037 ft/s Max: 1058 ft/s Spread: 21 ft/s Power Factor Average: 130 Power Factor Low: 129 Power Factor High: 132 Weight: 125.0 gr.
  7. Thanks for all the info. Here's my load Name: .38 Short Colt: 160gr Bayou RN: Titegroup 3.2gr: OAL 1.20 Notes: S&W 627 Shots: 11 Average: 774 ft/s SD: 13 ft/s Min: 753 ft/s Max: 790 ft/s Spread: 37 ft/s Power Factor Average: 123 Power Factor Low: 120 Power Factor High: 126 Barometric Pressure: 30 in Hg Temperature: 66 F Weight: 160.0 gr.

  8.

  9. For me, anything under 1.2 oal bulges the case. In my 627 I use 3.2gr of Titegroup over a 160gr Bayou bullet. My gun always chrono's slow. Maybe start at 3gr ?
  10. Ok, I checked the alignment and it's fine. I realigned the .38 special sizing die with a piece virgin brass. I loaded some virgin brass, and no bulge at the bass. I'm on my way to the range, so I'll post the results. But, since a 9mm case is wider at the base than a .38 short colt case, if I fire a short colt in a 9mm chamber, won't I see a bulge?
  11. Thanks, I'm using old style Dillon dies with less flare. I loaded these on a 550. I have an alignment tool, I'll check it today. Thanks again
