Re: Hey LDB . . .
Thanks, LDB. I must admit, I was a bit concerned about the 9mm leads for the reason you mention. With the 9, it's hard not to push the bullet past 1,000 FPS even with small charges. I think I will take your advice on the W231 since I have a good supply of that powder available.
With .38s, I nearly always load to around 850 FPS for target use. Since the majority of these will be shot from 2" snubbies anyway, the velocity will probably not even reach 850 FPS. I think I'll load up 50 each using Bullseye, Unique, and W231 to see which gives me the most consistent result in my revolvers.
