I wouldn’t worry about it.
3.5 BE is a top end load for stained pressure 38 special.
it’s going to be just like shoot factory jacketed out of the rifle. Just make sure the bullet exits the barrel.
If for some weird reason it doesn’t then shoot the rest in a revolver.
45/70 is so easy to load for
Get a lee loader or a Lyman 310 and you will be fine.
There are some more detailed videos out there but this one shows the simplicity of it.
I’ve loaded a bunch of 45/70 this way and even though I shoot a ton of it I wouldn’t feel under gunned with just a lee loader...
It’s because your press is the wrong color ;)
I have micro groove in all 4 of my Marlins
They have all proven accurate with lead. So if you ever run into one with MG rifling don’t hesitate to buy it Gerry
Cracked open a new bucket of tumbling media and cleaned up some 300 Blackout brass.
Just picked up a NOS 20 gauge Mec 600 MK V and a 12 gauge to match. The 12 gauge seems to have been unboxed and never used.
I’ll probably set them up tonight and sell off the older models I have.
Good point about the low charge weight giving a ton of loads per can.
I have used a decent amount of Clays and for light loads it amazing. Super clean burning.
Trail Boss is technically a Clays technology powder. Just bigger donuts.
What bullet are you going to be using? Hopefully a home cast...
Cool. Just curious. I always stayed away from it due to cost.
I do have from a batch of stuff I purchased but I never loaded it.
Let me know how you like it. Do you normally load 38? If so what powders have you used? I would like to hear your comparison if so.
Not at all. 32 grains of H4198 takes up the same amount of space as 12 grains of Unique.
I was loading with Unique and switched over to H4198 and dropped my first charge to see how much I needed to crank up the powder measure. Hardly had to move it at all. It’s only off by about 1/2 grain or so...
