Put together 20 rounds of 38-55 using my home cast Lee 379250 and 24.5 grains of H4198. In twice fired StarLine brass with CCI LRP. So far with the three bullets I'm loading in 38-55 H4198 has proved to be the work horse powder.

Trimmed and neck sized some 1X Win brass for the 99. Took some length and diameter measurements to see what happens on second firing in the maxed out chamber. Used 40 grains of Varget and 168 Hornady Match. I am hoping to see little case stretch.

45 Colt mostly for the Rossi a few may find their way to the Ruger. @55 grain MoBullet SWC with blue lube, 9 grains of HS6. The test loads averaged about 1100 fps so a nice load for a Sunday afternoon at the range.
