I've been reloading for a while in a number of calibers - including 38/357.
For 38/357 I reload for a revolver and have been using a roll crimp with SJSP bullets.
I would like to switch to coated (which I have done for 9 & 45) but am unsure regarding crimp for a revolver load.
So, couple of question s as follows for those who do reload for 38/357, revolver, with coated bullets:
- Do you roll crimp your rounds?
- If you do not roll crimp (eg taper) do you have any problems with bullet movement in a revolver?
- How hot (FPS) are you pushing your rounds (FYI these are for a 6" revolver)?
- If you are roll crimping you are then using a bullet with a cannelure - which brand have you been using and which weight?
