    Wadcutter goodness

    Two days of rain here in western Pa so I loaded 500 rounds of .38 Special wadcutters and did the action on my new to me Model 629-2. As good as it gets until I get to the range.

    Whose wadcutters are you using? Used to use Western NV/West Coast Bullet - (became Xtreme bullets), now have some Hornady soft swaged ones. Not the best accuracy

    These are Hornaday hollow based 148gr. I use these mostly for banging steel but sighting in on paper they seem to be very accurate.

    I got a box of the Hornady wadcutters too. I have been using the Speer HBWC but the store was out. Will have to get some loaded to see how they compare to the Speer bullets
