Brian Enos's Forums... Maku mozo!

Worked up a load for 38 Super today


Recommended Posts

I loaded 130 grain powder coated cast bullets with 5.0 grains of W231 and oal of 1.280 and got an average velocity of 1107 fps with an extreme spread of 34. However, if you throw out one that was much higher than the rest, the extreme spread was 14. Gives a power factor of 143 so could go lower, but pretty pleased with the results of this load. Even in a lightweight commander recoil was not bad, especially since I have been playing with a 10 mm load and we shoot major in 45 acp and 40 s & w.
