    .380acp LEAD reloading data

    Have acquired some 98gr lead hard cast bullets for reloading (.380acp). Cannot seem to find any data for lead bullets. Lots of info for FMJ. Anyone have any info or experience? Wolud like to use Win 231 or Bullseye powder. These would be just for target practise in a Kel Tek and a Ruger LCP.

    I found data for 100gr lead bullet in my Lyman 47 using your powders.
    powder start max
    Bullseye 1.9gr 2.7
    231 2.0 3.1

    Lyman calls for a Lyman #356632 #2 ALLOY 0.885 OAL

    hope that helps.

    Thanks, it helps lots. My Lyman Pistol & Revolver Handbook only listed a 95gr lead bullet, using almost the same powder charges as you sent (slightly less). I will start low and work up.
    Lots of info for 100gr FMJ.
    Thanks.
