    Main reason I got involved with the hp-38 was it supposed to have worked well across the board for what I load for. Guess I need to keep it out of the big cases and try summin else lol

    I've been reading it's also rather position sensitive also. Might have run better if I carried rounds nose up and/or held the muzzle high before shooting

    My hodgden book (granted older) showed 6.5 as mid-range load. For a cast bullet, of 230gr and Berry's says to load for cast, plated or jacket can be used.

    Not my cast boolit, but Berry's plated .452 230 grain flat point over 6.5 gr of HP-38 and a cci large pistol primer. Most I shot seemed fine, but a bit light. But, I stopped after my second squib that puked unburnt powder down my barrel and...

    And when Walmart buckles and stops selling shotshells, or the morons elect another Demoncrap and all preloaded ammo vanishes? It's not about cost, if it were how many would be reloading 55-62 grain 5.56? It's about being ready.......
