    Cor-Bon ammo pushes the limit of SAAMI perameters, so reseating the bullets could pose a
    problem for your .380 and your health. As pointed out by "Overkill0084" let Cor-Bon make it
    right.

    Thanks guys, I failed to mention that I'm going to begin reloading for .44Special. Since I
    stopped reloading about 5 years ago, when we sold our house with a well appointed
    garage/workshop, and moved ...

    I used to reload for a Marlin 1894 and a Colt clone SAA in .44-40, and more specifically with
    cast lead bullets by Beartooth (?). Both guns seemed to do okay with bullets that were sized
    .430 (both gu...

    Hi WDB,You may want to edit out the offending "acronym" from your quote of my post. (Just
    thought I'd mention it.)

  • Posted in thread: .380 - 38? on 12-18-2010 at 09:05 PM
    Thanks for the tip, but I was only precising from the article in Gun Tests. Needless to say,
    the "heavy" 158grn .38Spec +P load I mentioned is indeed just that. What pleases me is that
    both the articl...

    Here are my two 442's. Great guns--both of them, IMHO. Two speed loaders carry the "heavy" load
    I mentioned in the previous post, and the other two are CCI .38Spec+P 130grn loads {the nickled
    cased ro...

    Can someone tell me the difference between .38 ammunition and .380 ammunition? I keep telling
    my step-dad that it's the amount of gunpowder load that is in the shell but the bullet size is
    the same......

    Very nice Beretta Laramie. I've wanted one like yours for several years, but then Beretta
    doesn't seem to be making them anymore. All I've seen is their Colt clone.

    Well AH-1,Those are some very nice revolvers. I'm a little jealous of your Ruger Bisley. Did
    you shorten the barrel, or did you have a custom gunsmith do the work for you. That is one
    sweet looking pi...
