Practice reloads in last 6 Months

What is the practice round that you have built and shot the most in the last 6 months?

For me since I've been limited to indoor ranges it has been the .38 Special, using 3.9 grains of Hercules Infallible pushing a 158 grain FCP TC bullet.

Not familiar with Infallible; is it a Canada thing?

Almost all I've shot in the last six months have been .22 rimfire, with a small amount of 223 and 9mm.

About 18 months ago I was offered about 9 lbs of Infallible by Hercules. It was manufactured from 1898 to 1948 as a shotgun powder. I'm down to 4 lbs now, been using it for Cowboy Action loads in .38 Spl.

Oy. Seventy years old at a minimum, and possibly as much as 120 years; and still performing. Thatís impressive.

I wouldn't want to use it for a firearm that's to be used in the Olympics but for Cowboy Action with big steel targets out to a max of 25-30 yds, it works in both rifle and pistols.

There is no powder I would want to use in the Olympics.

Just watching an Olympic event makes my back hurt and my knees numb. And watching figure skating make me dizzy.

If I find myself trapped in a random Olympic event, I'm going to shoot my way clear.

Most winter Olympic events, yes; some summer events I can tolerate.



Yes, I'm a pig. Men are pigs; sue me.

Saturday loaded 800 45acp (only had 837 bullets). 1000 pain in azz 9mm an 600 38 spl.Stopped with those when ran out of empty boxes.. Might last a couple range trips, need to spend a couple days casting. Not a big project using 4 an 6 cavity molds, two of each, the sizing an lubing takes time.
