    At revolver velocities below about 500 fps if the revolver has a large cylinder gap over 0.008" a bullet might fail to exit the bore. The situation is exaserbated in a .357 chamber because there is gas leakage around the bullet when it transitions...

    5 grains of Bullseye was the standard .45 ACP charge. The .45 Colt M1909 load with 230-grain bullet used 7.5 grains of Bullseye and this would be a safe, standard pressure load substituting the 230-grain FMJ government bullet as well.

    Accurate has several heavy bullets for .38 Special and .38 S&W. I use the 36-190T which is a flat nose with large meplat which weighs 190 grains in wheelweights and about 195 in 1:40. .38 S&W (NOT SPECIAL!) Hand Loads Fired in Revolver And...

    Maybe screw in a die with a locknut, and tighten it down. Use a wrench and small mallet to gently tap it out. Sent from my VS880 using Tapatalk

    I agree that a Savage 340 in .30-30 is the obvious choice, unless you can find a Winchester 54 or Remington 788. If you have an ample budget a new bolt action rifle in 7.62x39 or .300 BO would be the obvious choice, but I vote .30-30!

    For low recoil, low velocity loads in the .44 Magnum you can use .44 Special data, but you will get better results with bulkier powders which take up some of the excess free airspace in the case. I use 5.5 grains of Bullseye with a 230-grain...

    That's what it says on the box of the Super Police. Lyman-Ideal #358430 is about 195 grains in No.2 alloy and to 200 grains in 1:40 tin-lead, which is closer in hardness to the factory bullet alloy. According to Hatcher's Textbook of...

    A solid, 10-15 BHN bullet at .44 Magnum handgun velocity, having a meplat 0.6 to 0.7 of the bullet diameter will be very effective and have good penetration. You don't need a HP. At handgun velocity harder alloy is not needed. I use Accurate...

    The .25-35 also makes a great small game gun when loaded down to .25-20 levels. Factory .25-35 loads feature a 117-gr. soft-point bullet. Some 50-year-old Super-X rounds and current Winchester ammo chronographed just shy of 2300 f.p.s. from the...
