    recap: trying to find a heavier bullet for metal silhouettes that's as accurate as the Rem factory .38 +P 125gr SJC HP's.

    Even factoring in my limited shooting skills and a low-budget rest, it doesn't appear to me that either of these two powders will work well with 158gr SWC's. :(

    Back to the drawing board, I guess.

    I'm open to any and all feedback.

    I would not expect to get the same accuracy from a SWC as a JHP especially if you are not running them at the same power factor.

    Based on you pics the W321 load looks promising I would work loads at .5g increments from there get a chrono. Accuracy can be a fine line between over or under pressure conditions.

    Thanks

    I have 100 rounds of Speer 158 grain JSP.

    What Win231 or Unique powder load would you recommend I try with them?
