I also pick up my shipment of powder from PV this weekend. After reading a lot, Im looking forward to trying out some Solo1000. Also have Power Pistol, Bullseye, TG, WSF, WST in that shipment also.

Just wish I could find enough primers to go with all this powder!:biglaugh:

JD,
Please don't load your reloads to low, or you might get a bullet stuck in the Barrel. Good Luck Buddy.

Even though it is published minimum it could be to light. You could save yourself a lot of time and money and just get some winchester 231 or alliant bullseye and just play with differant charge weights. The hp-38 is the same powder as 231 if you cant find the 231. Anyway it looks like you are having fun and that is what it is all about. :)

Look like some good Bullseye loads for the long and short line, as least as the .45 is concerned. Don't know much about .38. When your shipment comes in try these:

4.0 of BE
4.1 of Solo
4.2 of Titegroup
4.2 of WST
