    wv109323 replied to a thread 38 Squib loads? in Cast Boolits
    The velocity should be much higher for the 148's. Is there a noticeably different amount of recoil between the two loads? A quicker powder may be a better application but 2400 should do OK. I would suspect the chrono results are incorrect.

    There is only a couple of applications that I will continue to use PC. For my 45-70,I need to increase bullet diameter to fit the bore. Some of my rifle calibers ,I am flexible since both conventional lube and PC work equally well. But for 9mm, 38...

    New S&W's use a lot of MIM parts. They are not that bad but the revolver is not S&W main product nowdays. My brother bought a M-686 and it had to go back to the factory for some rework before the gun could be fired. I am not bashing S&W, but I...
