Hi folks,
 I have been shooting some 125 gr lead RNFP in my K38
 I know they are not a bullseye projectile but wonder if anyone knows of other sources besides Acme.
 Nothing against Acme , just looking for choices.
 I'm not a cowboy action shooter, just like that light load with 2.8gr BE in this one gun.
 A soft shooting load and for some reason very accurate in my old K38.
Thanks !

They list .358 as a sizing diameter.

I'd try the 125 RN with lube groove.  We've had lot's of reports of great accuracy in 9mm.  We can size them to .358.  Also we have a 38-125-TC which does have a cannelure.   It can be sized up to .359" if needed.  Either should perform better than ACME due to our alloy.  It just works better at lower pressures.

Not 125’s but I have had good luck with 130 gr rnfp Bullets from Bulletworks in Breckinridge, Texas. They are very popular with the cowboy action guys but work well in any 38 special.

Interesting.

I have your 9mm 124RN and .45 185LSWC here to try, and just ordered some .40 180 gr this morning.

I tried some .38 Spec 148NWC but couldn't make them do anything.

I've been using Acme coated for years, but figured I'd try yours since you have a presence here.

Now I'm curious to see the results!

Thanks!
