    Just loaded some, 3.8 AS50 under 125 Hawkesbury's. Nice consistant 130 power factor.

      Just tested some 38 Super loads this week - 125 grain Sure Shot (coated lead) RN with 4.3 AP50 = average 1110fps and 139 power factor. Oal 32.0mm
      Normal IPSC competition load is 4.9 grains of Unique with 125 RN = average 1130 fps and 141 power factor. Same length.
      Trying AP50 as Unique is hard to get currently in Sydney.

        Are yours AP50 or AS50 7600?

        My minor loads are currently 3.8 grains of AS30N under a 135 grain HRBC RN.

        Trying Win 231 next.

      Open Gun or Standard/Production Gun or Revolver???

      In a open gun or revolver you will a bit more to make PF because of the compensator/cylinder gap....

      I run 4.0of VV n320 with a 135RN westcasting in my S&W 627 38 Super revolver with 5 port barrel which gives me 950 fps average 128 PF

      Ap50 is a similar burning speed to n320

      Hope that helps
