I really hate to ask this. but here it goes. I am 100% new to loading 38sc and for an open gun. I have a schuemann hybrid 3 port barrel. with a comp that has 3 ports on top and 2 side ports. I havent seen a whole lot of published load data for 38 super comp that gets major pf. I am wanting to load up 125 grain coated rn bullets. I have no.7, wac, lil gun, power pistol, and shooters world major pistol. can some one give me a few tips on where to start. I got the gun used and the previous owner used 10.2 grains of 3n38. which doesnt shoot too flat in my opinion. the dot seems to dance around instead of going straight up and down. I am used to loading for 300aac and 9mm minor. I dont want to screw up the gun and very hesitant on where to start. (no vv powders in my area) Thanks guys and girls
STI was nice enough to sponsor our steel shoot and I won a STI 1911 forged ramped frame. I'm going to build a 40 S&W on it and I'm already set up to cast .452/.358,429 bullets. Any suggestions on a ramped barrel that handles cast lead better then others? I recall KART is known for good shooting with lead 45 ACP. I'd like to buy LEE six cavity molds to make the bullets, anyone do the same and what weight/models do you use.
I just recently got an adapter from Rick at Mr Bullet Feeder which allows bullets to feed cast bullets nose down for Star Lube sizer. It works great ! Feeds faster than I can work the handle. I run batches of my self cast bullets 5,000 - 6000 at a time. (not all at one sitting) but I process that amount before setting up for a different caliber or weight. I have used tubes filled with bullets but find the collator to be incredibly fast in comparison to manually filling tubes. Rick always designs his machines and adaptors to work smoothly and reliably. If there ever are hickups in the design, he will re work the design until the project is 100% functional. I have run in excess of 20,000 bullets with no problems attributed to Mr. Bullet feeder equipment. Very easy to switch from bullet nose down for lube sizing to bullet nose up for loading on my Dillon XL650. If you cast a lot of bullets this very inexpensive adapter allows one to use his bullet feeder for both lube sizing and loading ammo. Dual purpose for little more than single purpose. I love mine. Less time loading equals more time shooting.
