    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 hasn’t 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.

    May I take the time to remind people that if English is a second language, spelling may not be up to the standards of those who have English as a first language.

    You're right, actually. Anybody in this country interested in firearms should not only be allowed to keep and bear arms, but also encouraged to learn more.

    Sorry, ace1911. Best of luck with your new firearm.

    I'm here for fun. Lighten up. You spelled ALMOST every word wrong. Spelling is a pet peeve of mine. Deal with it, Nancy.

    OK, the first load. We went with 3gr Bullseye,158 gr swc. She did very well. We will be doing more testing as we get more mat,to test.Thanks to all that actually helped!Will post more as we try different reloads to match factory short barrel loads..I have found many people that use this round.And they have helped out..

    Thanks Bro.My idea fer this post was to find folks that actually use this round every day. So we didnt have to spend so much time working it out.As in our click,the ole guys that used a snubby,are few and far apart..This makes me feel old. When I was schooled,Jim chirilo,was the guy that you learned from. I bet no one here knows who he was!!
