    Good score. Gotta wade through a lot of crap to get to the gems, but they do crop up now and then.

    Garage sale, huh? Burglary is probably more like it.

    What's that red crap on the bullets... you drop 'em in Jell-O? :dunno:

    It's that fine sweet smelling high performance Carnauba Red lube.
    Unlike the hard paraffin with a blue crayon tossed in it your use too. :whistling:

    Nice, i have been to many garage sales looking for reloading stuff. But i live in a Liberal state (as you can tell from Nov. 2nd) and guns are the devil, so i always come home empty handed :crying:

    Try that bullet with 4.0 Bullseye in 38 Spl, if it drops big enough.

    Yeah, 0.357 works great in my Glock. I wouldn't size then down any, just pass them through a 0.358" die to lube them, or 0.357" die if the larger die casues lubing problems in the sizer machine.

    No 38Spl, WTF?

    I'm suggesting that you use 4.0 grains of Bullseye powder, manufactured by Alliant (formerly Hercules, though the Hercules stuff is just fine too) with that bullet in the 38 Special cartridge with that bullet.

    You responded that you don't shoot 38 Special, I was surprised that you don't have a 38Special since it is arguably the single most popular pistol caliber, at least it was for a very long time.

    Well I probably ain't a normal never owned a 38 Spl or a 9mm until last week. Out of about 20 moulds I didn't have a suitable mould for a 9er but lucked out and found a mould and dies and your favorite "a LW barrel" all at the same time. :supergrin:
    The mould mighta saved me from gettin another one of those brass moulds.
