    Anyone using jacketed bullets for .38? I like Precision Delta for 9mm but it looks like they only offer lead bullets in the .38...

    It seems as if jacketed bullet offerings in .38 are limited. Montana Gold offers some JHP options but pricey. I'm about to start load developement for a S&W airweight and decided to go with some Berrys Plated 38/357 125 grain FP Bullets to start. I'm just going to get 250 tacked on a order I'm making with Dillion to combine shipping charges.

    I have tried several and ZERO is the best of the lot.

    For many years I used the Star 130 gr. FMJ. Unfortunately Star went out of business several years ago. I shot my last Star FMJ's last week and am now switching to the Berry's 158 gr. plated RN.
