I've loaded e3 in my 9's but not for 38 Special. Any recipes for 38 Special?
I think Loads of Bacon on YouTube & The Reloader's Network used e3 in many pistol calibers during the last dark age.
Thanks...I'll check that out.
I picked up 4lbs of e3 to try out a while back, would you mind sharing your 9mm load?
My "go to" 9mm e3 load has been with Lee Pro Auto Disk #57 which drops 3.5gr. Using Darda's 0.357 124 LRN non-shouldered bullet @ 1.105 COL thru my S&W full size M&P 9mm, my loads averaged 1038 fps.
Here's some scoop from the BE forum from 5 years ago:
I have several 2" 38 Spcl snubbies that I reload for and am thinking a start point for them would be 2.9 grains to use with 125 gr/158 gr plated bullets.
We are in the midst of a huge rain storm here in the Reno area which means the road to my desert shooting spot is impassable. Ugh! We have snow expected later today into tomorrow as well. If the precip stopped this weekend it would take nearly 2 weeks for things to dry out.
