    Leaves me out for a specific reply … the only 38 Spl owned was converted to 32-20 No worries about 22rf supply. If the commercials run out, I too can reload a box of 50 in under 20 minutes

    Just a follow-up on this for those that are interested. Life isn't 100% black and white. If you believe it's a good idea to sell to people that appear to be scripted, unstable or unsafe I really don't know what to tell you other than you will...

    My reloads are charged with 2.1gr Bullseye … 1520fps and 4.5gr of Swiss Null B … 1230fps using the Old West seating/crimp die with a light crimp just enough to keep the heeled bullet from falling out of the case. Accuracy at 50 and 100 yds is very...

    Lyman #45 was my first and like you the Speer #80 was my second purchased in late 71 or early 72. I've kept every manual I have ever owned with the exception the the two P.O. Ackley books. In the past Lee has had some beyond warm loads.

    So since Speer made the #8 we should blindly follow it?????????? So you're a fool if you follow it and a fool if you don't? Interesting perspective.

    It depends what gun I am shooting. My Ruger LCP 380 is shot at 21 feet to 50 feet. My XP-100's are shot out to 500 yards. My bullseye guns are preferred at 50 yards but if 25 yard is all that is available that is what they are shot at.

    Haven't seen it done since the mid 70's but taping a marble or ball bearing on the primer and throwing it down on a hard surface would set it off. The shot normally stayed in the case and base would split open or the shot would basically stay put...
