HP-38 used by anyone?

Post by Blackjackjoe21 on 3/21/2015, 8:09 am

I've used BE powder for decades like everyone for my match loads but want to try something that's easier for me to get.  Anyone have experience with this?

Same as Winchester 231.  So also search for that to get ideas.  At bullseye levels data is pretty much interchangeable.

Like said W231 and HP38 are the same powder just branded different for the Winchester packaging. W231 is a well known powder for 45 acp target loads and there is plenty of loading info for it out there.

Accurate and soft recoil exceptional powder. Under 5 grains it's dirty. I believe 5.2 grains over a 200 swc was a very popular long line load.
