Finally got around to loading some of my home cast Lyman #358311's . (160 grain 357 round nose.) That I also made a pan lube and lubed them with it.(see above).
Doing 12 in 38 special with H-Universal. 4.2, 4.4, and 4.6. And 12 in .357 with H-110. 15.7, 16.0, and 16.3.
Going to try and get it tomorrow to test them in the Taurus 66, 6inch.
Been a while since I ran up a load in the .357. It was the gun I learned to load with. It had never seen a factory cartridge since the first 50. I bought them to check the gun and get brass, to start loading with.
Thanks to the Originator of this thread, Gandog56 (RIP), for getting me started. Walking me thru my first loads. It has been a rewarding hobie. Who would a thunk that I would go so far, from loading berry's bullets with a recipe given to me by him. To making up my own alloys, casting, tumble and pan lubing, then on to powder coating. Making my own lubes. Recycling range lead and brass scrap. Loading lead in rifle. And so forth. It has been a great and rewarding. adventure.
But most of all it has given me time spent with my family, and given me several new friends.
Sorry for the rant. missing Gandog56.
