We have a thread asking what you shot today. How about one that you can tell us what you loaded today.
I loaded some heavy 239gr LFN GC cast under some IMR 3031 for my Marlin 336 in 35 Remington. And no its not the 35 I found on friday and started a thread about. I also loaded some classic 175gr lead round nose under some IMR4350 for my Ruger No.1 RSI in 7x57.
It was yesterday but some 38 Special 155 LSWC cast over 5.0 Unique and Winchester brass and W-W spp. Building this in anticipation of getting a new Colt Cobra 38 out of layaway in January. I will also use this round in a 640 and a Kimber K6s.
Just a good all around cartridge. My Doctor has advised me that I have shrunk 1.3" since I left the military 51 years ago. That must explain my abiding passion that I am developing for snubnose revolvers.
I think we do have this thread idea, over in reloading n wildcats forum but it has slid off the first screen. I went downstairs to finish up some 44 spec wadcutters this am but ended up cleaning the Ruger 44mag SBH Hunter and the shorty 480 BSBH instead. Don't know why I bothered,likely get them dirty again soon !
Not today but Wednesday loaded up some 44 Special with a dose of AA5 and a 200 grain XTP Hornady bullet, Book says 991fps we will see how it does when the snow and fog lifts and we can run a chrono again. A home defense load for a 44 Smith that lays about in this domicile.

Midrange (SBH Bisley 5 shot) meaning the use of HS-6 (14.0-14.5gr) and the 477-640 HP bullet by MiHa. But looking at my notes its a little warmer than I remembered. My notes say 1050-1100fps, but I question that. I need to check it again. I normally keep several of both on hand. Next time I shoot it I will drag out my chronograph.
