.38 load data with TiteGroup

Post by Reloader on Thu Mar 10, 2011 4:49 pm

I loaded Bullseye for years in .38 special but wanted to try TiteGroup. I am using Rainier 125 grain fmjfp. I show a start of 3.2 and max of 3.8 off the Hodgon website. My book doesn't show load for TiteGroup and that light a bullet. What are your pet loads for this powder? I will use in IDPA but I am not worried about making power factor yet.

I should have said they were plated or encapsulated bullets instead of fmj (full metal jacket). Rainier says to load their coated bullets as if they were lead. Neck, I saw that load in my book also, sorry for not being more specific.

I load 125g lazercast (lead) with 3.5g of titegroup. Good accuracy and they chrono 842 fps average. Thats out of a 4 5/8" Ruger Vaquero.
