What is a snube? I'm glad your wife is "pratty" good at it, but what is it?

I hand loaded a few for my brother in law to shoot in his LCR. He hasnít tried them yet so I cant tell you what they are like in a light weight gun?
My ruger SP101 shoots them well and has almost no recoil.
I used trail boss powder in one with a 125 gr. LRNFP
The other was Unique powder with the same 125 gr. LRNFP
Both loads are between 750 and 800 FPS.

with trail boss you can fill the case to where the base of the bullet will rest. Dont compress.
