    Does anyone have load data for 250gr. RNFP using HP-38/W231?

    Iíve got a sample bag coming in from Brazos but canít find much in the way for data. Would like to end up around 925-950 FPS out of a 5Ē barrel.

    There's a PDF file I once downloaded from Midway but I can't seem to find it. They had data up past 250 but I can't recall what powders we're used.

    max 231 5.9gr 824fps

    Maybe you can extrapolate from that.

    Thanks I had a feeling the HP-38 I have on hand is too fast burning to get where I want to go. May have to try sourcing some different powder or just roll up some warmer 200 SWCs for outdoors carry.
