    200g bullets in .38 Special

    I just posted an informal "range report" at http://www.defensivecarry.com/vbulle...ml#post1202788

    If you are interested in this caliber & bullet weight combination, please take a look. Would love to hear how others load this round. Note that I used Win 231 because I have it, it meters well for me, and the charge I used apparently was once a Winchester factory load. I have Unique, such as Lee 2nd Edit. lists, but I have trouble metering it. Not a big deal in my .45LC, but not ideal for heavy bullet/standard pressure loads in .38SPL, especially since the Lee standard/+P listings overlap & have a very tight range anyway.

    Look at the same thread noted above to see the mik jug penetration test I just conducted. Bottom line: 30" water penetration at 10'.
