Okay, just picked up a .38WCF Colt and am trying to find some good loads for cast bullets, staying under 1,000 fps. I have Unique, Accurate 5 on hand. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Is this an antique?

Mine is an 1898. BP only, thank you.

1905 Colt Bisley, tight as a drum still! So I'm not going to hot rod it, just looking for a mild load. None of my current manuals have very much in them

Deacon,
 I use 5 1/2-6.0 grs. Unique in mine with a 180 gr. bullet, mine's dated 1910. Max is 7.5 grs. But when I shoot it it's mostly B/P. Use real B/P, you'll have more fun and smile more.  Cheesy
Have fun,
Isom

Thanks Isom, with that nickel finish BP is now a possibility. You guys are a bad influence!  Grin
