Looking for opinions on different powders and powder quantity for 38 special loads for Cowboy Action shooting. I recently set up my new Dillion 550b and have have some Trail Boss powder. It appears to be hard to find so I'm looking for alternative powders. Also interested in the amount of powder folks are recommending for 38 special loads.
I use Unique for mine. But, like RiverRider stated, Red Dot, Bullseye and several others will work just as well. As for the amount (charge weight) of powder - pick up a couple of reloading manuals or just check some of the one's online for the powder(s) you have - Hodgden has one of the better online loading books.
Pay it forward - Kids are the future.
Stupidity is the deliberate cultivation of ignorance
I like unique for lite loads for 41, 44,and, 45. Get a good book or go on line every one has their pet loads. I have used red and green dot with success. Every gun is different and my loading data may not work for yours.
