I would like to hear suggestions for cast loads for a 38-55 rifle, both plain base and GC.I have two 38-55 rifles, one regular and one a 38-55 Improved. Yes, there is a 38-55 Improved thanks to a goofup I made while building it. It turned out to be my favorite deer rifle. The 38-55 Imp is getting close to 2300 fps with 36.5 grs. of Reloader 7 with a 220 gr .375 Hornady jacketed flat nose bullet & 5 shot groups at 100 yds. just slightly over 1/2 inch .When you make a shoulder shot on a deer, you don't have to look for him. If I ever figure out how to post a picture on this forum I would like to post a picture of this rifle and ammo. It's a very interesting little rifle. I built it 39 years ago.
Also does anybody know where I can get some Hornady 220 gr .375 interlock flat nose jacketed bullets .It seems Hornady dropped production of these but I heard they were supposed to start production again. I have 3 rifles that I shoot these in and I'm about out of bullets. I would appreciate cast hunting loads and target loads in the loads I requested.
