Also if you go to the Remington web sight there is no .38 match ammo.
Just SWC.

I have maybe 500 or so left of the HBWC's
Long line only.
Everything else is the Hornady and Speers that I have; which is a lot.

Anyone want to trade one for one of those messy Remingtons ?

I heard for DR the SWC is ok but the Rem round nose is better. I have zero SWC and they are pretty good but not as accurate a HBWC. 

These look good I have not tried them yet. http://www.xtremebullets.com/38-148-WC-p/xc38-148wc-b0500.htm

I have used these and they are 1 hole accurate at 25 yards but a bit messy. https://www.precisiondelta.com/products/bullets/bullets-38spl-148-hbwc.html

Since my revolver shooting is DR I am using SWC's and they are not near as accurate as a swagged HBWC.

Magnus has their HBWC #514 in stock and they work great. My 52 and 14's love this bullet. Just a reminder that one of our fellow shooters makes great bullets and they are available. NFI  http://saas.shopsite.com/magnusbullets/store/page11.html

Can someone ID this brand 148?  I have about 1000 of them.  No brand on the box but feint labeling shows 148 HBWC from the 70s.

They look like Taurus made in Patersen NJ if that is the case they are very good. They used to make a 200gn BN SWC 45acp that was amazing. All swagged bullets. Does it look like the box was green and white?

Jack, send them to me and I will make positive ID. Only need 900 for lab testing. They look like Speer.

Jim,
have you tried Precision Delta ammunition? Their website states they use a swaged bullet and can be ordered with Federal primer for the lightened actions. Seems like I've heard PPC guys use their stuff. Hemphill was sponsored by them for a while.

That's why ive held off getting any yet...  They list them at .357 dia, and for the revolver, I was really looking for 358+ dia.

I wouldn't think you would have to worry about the difference between .357 and .358. The hollow base WC would expand instantly to get full seal and contact. Much like the mini-balls of a century earlier. I use the super soft lead Magtec 158gr RN with its small hollow base in my revolvers for DR for the same reason. Just my .02...

Nope. Stars had a smaller dot and much more defined grease grooves.

Also just fired off an email to Remington about there production of the HBWC's and their match ammo that they loaded those in.

Received a reply today from Remington.

They have stopped production of the 148gr LHBWC and the match ammo that they loaded them in.
