Best performing powder for Gold Dot HP SB
This is a question for any of you that reloads with the 135 grain Speer Gold Dot short barrel 38 special.
What is your favorite/best performing powder to use with this bullet? I've been using 5.2 grs of Unique , and my Colt Cobra really likes this load.
This is my carry/practice load. ( I don't buy factory ammo for my revolvers anymore)
My sp101 2.25" doesn't care for this load too much, which is too bad because I prefer to carry it over the Colt. So I'm gonna try and find a load it likes. This is from 10 yards standing.
I like W231 with an XTP, but it doesn't do so good with the Gold Dot, IMO. So , what's your go to powder with this bullet?
