38 HBWC choices?

Post by s1120 on Wed Mar 01, 2017 10:32 am

OK, so right now I'm shooting 358495 wadcutters in my model 19 revolver. Right now only for practice, and for centerfire league shoots at 50 feet. They are working OK, but the ones I'm using were casted up back in the 70's, and were sized a little small for either my dads model52, or a 38cal 1911 he had.. They run 356.5...  So I plan to cast up some more, when I get the pot fired up, and size them at 358. I also plan to stick with them for practice, short line, and plinking. The point of this post, is I also want to shot this gun in a few 2700 matches..  I want to work on a 50 yard load for matches, and maybe a match only 25 yard using a HBWC. Now most people prefer the Remington 148 Grain HBWC buy a long shot, but they are not available at this time. What would be the next choice for a affordable, good shooting HBWC for a smith revolver? Thanks for any advice.

Magnus or Zero.  I've also heard good things about Precision Delta.

Last month I was at the range shooting a 52 and a 14. Normally I just shoot DR ammo in the 14 but decided to try the WC in the 14. Shot 5 shots TF pace and decided to not shoot 5 more. Knew I would just mess up a good target. Shot with Magnus 148gr HBWC. They are back in stock now.
