JHP 38 Special accuracy load

Post by Steve B on Wed Sep 13, 2017 11:23 am

Has anyone experimented with 38 special revolver accuracy using JHP bullets as opposed to lead?  Generally speaking we find that best accuracy is obtained using JHP's in 9mm and 45 but we tend to only talk about lead loads in the 38.  If you have experience in this area I'd appreciate hearing it.  Thanks.

I have had very good results using 110gr XTP's. I will post loads when I get into shop.

 Zero 125 JHP with HP38, W231 or WST work very well. Run then 950-1020 fps from a 6" gun and you should get results under 2" at 50 yds.

Bayou 120 or 124 TCG bullet sized to .358 with same powders in the same velocity range will not disappoint either.
