Very funny! Found myself laughing out loud several times.

An interesting topic that I read with interest. Both my older brother & I used to carry 148 gr. wadcutters. Factory production and some my brother hand-loaded.

The hand-loadeds were not carried specifically for LE duty, but were 'on-hand' if we wanted to use them. His special-case testing was interesting, and effective as well. That was back in the good old mid-'70s revolver era.

Yes, I too have my semi-autos, but folks need to credit the serious versatility of a good revolver with a serviceable load.

840, did you guys load up the hollow-based wadcutters backwards, as some did?

Yes, my brother Ed started hand-loading in '68, but by '74 he had more time, patience, and better reloading equipment to work up his loads and checked them all at the range as he progressed using 3 to 5 different revolvers.

Other than to have some that we carried in our snubs in the off-hand pocket, he did have a speedloader along with them at-the-ready. I can't describe the purpose on here of how and when he used them, but I can tell you that the results were eye-opening at the time.

I don't recall which brand HBWC he used or the final loading he settled on, but I know he had a gas check on the front-end which was inserted in the cartridge case first.

Not sure if I can provide my phone number here for you to reach me. It's easier to describe the events of their use via phone conversation.

Mike, Digging through some notes I had made from my brother's hand-load notes, I couldn't find the brand bullet he settled on. Knowing him it might have been the Winchester 148 gr. HBWC that he seated backwards. Nor can I find the specific load data I couldn't mention here anyway, but I do recall he loaded things very consistently as he was into perfection when it came to his reloading time and effort. I do recall they had a MV of about 845 FPS 5.

That's all the info I could find. Just wish I could have also found a 50 round box or two of them, but no luck.
