I am thinking, I am going to move away from 38spc brass entirely. I only use it in revolvers and they are all 357. I also have 357 rifles and I like commonality.
I think I will load for full power 357, I can run them in anything. And ‘down-load’ for comps and plinking, to get close to 38spc in terms of handling.
I pretty much exclusively use, 158gr projectiles, if that helps.
For shits and giggles I have measured my 357 loads from 6" barrel at a respectable 1200fps average (one outlier at 1132fps, rest 1200+). Ka-fn-boom! Obviously uncontrollable in rapid fire.
Question for revolver shooters, what velocities (preferably with heavier pills, 158gr perhaps) are you aiming for? Specifically for comps, like service matches and WA1500. Usually I just work up to something that’s accurate enough and feels good enough, but I never measured 38spc. Definitely not after anything amebic (like Western Action) that I can’t feel.
Thoughts, suggestions, advice?
