Re: 38spl vs 9mm loads ???
Pretty much what keeps me interested, the variables that you mention are subtle yet they represent an entire science that reloaders learn over those who simply buy factory ammo to hear their gun go bang. Notice the .38 is one half the CUP of the 9mm. Your loads appear fine.
