gargoil66 Posted August 28, 2022 Share Posted August 28, 2022 Guys: First -- YES -- I did read the 2K8 posts about bowling pin loads using the 230 grain .38 wadcutters. One of the guys came upon a bunch of bowling pins and wants to have a stage during a SC match being a pin shoot. Last Pin Shoot I did was in the early 80's using a chopped Colt 1917. Was fun but not to the point where I sought out pin matches. Badman Bullets seems to be the only place I found any 230's for pins and they are out of stock. Was going to beg for some here but might as well just buy a mold and cast what I need. Who knows, I may take to pin shooting once I run through a few arrays again. So I ordered a 4 cavity mold from Accurate Molds and will spend the time casting and powder coating the bullets. Load data is sparce and I would prefer not to extrapolate on this one. 230 grain bullets out of a 627 is a leap in terms of bullet weights and consuming case volume. I have plenty of .38 Spl and .357 Mag brass. The powders I have are Ramshot Comp, 231, Tite Group, and some Shooters World Ultimate Pistol. Even some Winchester Auto Comp. So, questions are as follows. .38 Spl or .357 brass? Recommended starting loads using one or more of the powders I listed above. Things I need to pay attention to when loading and during load development. Thankyou. GG Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
