Some questions, or uncertainties. First of all, should I use a HP bullet?
If I donít need HP bullets, I could use my regular HC SWC field loads.
Iíve been able to find only Winchester HP loads at the places Iíve gone to. They are either 110 grain, or 125 grain. The 125 grain loads are +P
It seems to me that 110 grain is too light, but I donít know about that.
I have 2, 38 Special revolvers and I donít want to use +P in either I guess. One is a S&W ďJĒ frame, and the other a Colt ďDĒ frame.
I donít know for certain if either is rated for +P, but Iíve been told that a few of them wouldnít be so bad. Anyway, I decided to use NON- +P loads.
Yes, I can handload 38 Special and I do, but I thought it would be simpler to use Factory Loads for this purpose, since I wouldnít be shooting a lot of them, but I would probably shoot a box or two of them initially, in each gun, for practice. And do the rest with my handloads.
Any advice on which way to jump would be much appreciated.
