I just bought a 1950 vintage S&W 38 special and made it to the range last week. Cast 148 gr WC’s were tearing up the target, not just key holing, but tearing up the paper. Switched to plated 148 WC’s and nice clean round holes. Powder, charge, primers all the same. Only difference was the type bullets.
lets see if this works
Im working on my handheld so im not sure this upload/download will work. But here is a picture of the target. Same gun, same day, same ammo. Though the roundnholes were not the very next cylinder. The very next cylinder produced round holes I guess my memory that the keyholed group wasnt bad wasnt correct.
Then after the first cylinder load 'cleaned' the throats, it all worked normally.
