    Does anyone here load the 38 S&W. It is one of my favorite calibers and I'm having a realy hard time finding loads for it.

    Use the forum's search feature (center/right in the green bar toward the top of the page). You'll find lots of past threads on loading the .38 S&W cartridge. Also one of our members, Missouri Bullet Co offers lead bullets that are correctly sized to .361". Various other members have provided loading data for both smokeless and black powder. ;)

    Speer #13 has loads for .38 S&W in 110 & 125 jacketed, as well as 148 WC & 158 lead bullets. I would assume.

    I bet the Lyman #29 has a bunch as well.

    .357 jacketed or plated bullets will work fine, but as the Old Fuff posted, .361 bullets are the way to go if you load lead.

    Jake; you double posted this. Take a look at the one you started up in "Revolvers"

    Ken Water's Pet Loads has a page and a half of loads listed. Lyman's #49 has a few. Lee #2 has none.

    I apologize for not reading thoroughly, both good threads. I cast and load for the cartridge, great one for easy loading and accurate shooting.
