At what distance was your friend shooting?

Squib aside, if you can't tell where your rounds are going, STOP SHOOTING!

Not trying to be a dick but holy cow, I can't imaging continuing to fire if I could not tell where the rounds were impacting.

Tack

Any experience with hp38?
I have been using Universal Clays. I load 4.5 gr with 158 gr Rainier for my 357. This is listed as the max load. 4 gr is the starting load.

Yeah, it looks pretty simple to figure out. The fact that one cannot see any signs of a bullet impacting anywhere should throw up at least one red flag.
