I use them too. For tiny drops or to close to max loads.
Lee dipper, powder trickler if I need a little more, Lee powder-through die with Lee...
I was thinking if I did this id at least pick a powder quantity in the middle of book recommendation.
So, one can pretty much follow any .38 spl. Data and load it into .357 brass?
I've tried but can't.
Too many situations for one tool to cover.
I have four guns I carry now depending on circumstances.
One DA/SA revolver,...
That weakish return spring contributes to the fantastic trigger pull. Light and very smooth on my '21 KC.
The LCR has a weak return, too. And...
Well that was dumb.
I'm setting up a new measuring drum in my Lee drum powder dispenser on my Lee 4 hole turret press.
There is some trial error...
I'm sure it would.
I was just leaning towards Titegroup for easier metering.
About to try the 100 gr LFN-TC bullet again, this time with TiteGroup.
As before, no book data. I'm going to start with 3.0 grs.
I ordered some Enforcer...that was expensive. (Shipping fees to pay for extra stickers and put it on the back of the truck)

Thanks, but that's with a lead bullet.
Factiry Hornady 158 gr XTP chronographed about 1075 fps from my 1.9 in LCR, so I know it can be done with...

I tested my .357 mag 158 gr XTP increasing CFEP from 6.6 to 6.8 gr.
7 of 10 shots over the chrono that read my average went down 10 fps and...
I commonly shoot from 1 to 25 yds and occasionally (I should more often) take is back to 50 yds.
I'm leaning towards using .357 mag cases for all loads.
That will mean practicing reloading the gun with the cases I'll carry, which is good....
Can back order .38 Colt Short. Have .38 spl, (1k or so) have small amount of .357 (about 400 total) but want to save new cases for defense loads....
I've yet to trim or cut cases.
Do I need to worry about trimming .357 cases?
