Thank you kind sir but respectfully I must decline your generous offer!

Seems some consider those wadcutter case's sorta special. So much so that now I will keep them separate and go through all my other 38 brass to call out all the others.
I am not going to pop for a H&G #50 wadcutter mold but I just ordered the Lee 6 cavity equivalent. Will see what all this wadcutter bizness is all about.
Got my dies and found 500 158g lead SWC's back in the cabinet to add to the 1000 158g lead round nose.
I got every kind of powder except for bullseye. Dang.

Managed to get my lazy ass out to the range. Shooting this thing with target wadcutters is like shooting a .22. Sent 100 downrange.

Not real happy with my performance but did start to get settled down after awhile.

Just get you one of these and you'll be fine.



Also, might I suggest Kim Ahrends grips if you choose to ditch the PC Magnas?
Kim Ahrends
There is an excellent seller on ebay for Ahrends, too.



Mine.

@ Davedude, even if you read about him before read again on Jack Weaver who won his fame with a K38. Those guns are outstanding performers and he proved how good they are.

I will check that all of that out! Those grips are very nice. Thanks!

I think the rear sight is bent up, it would not adjust down far enough. My bullseye hold was low to compensate.
