    Hodgdon lists 12 loads in 357Mag and 15 in 38 with CFE Pistol. I didnt check the 38+P but .3 to .5gr typically makes that pressure delta. If you are shooting in a 357Mag, you have plenty of leeway in +P if you just want a little oomph using a little thought.

    Go on Amazon and look for them used, you can get deals on them and honestly, I prefer the newer ones to the old ones. Should be able to score a Lyman, hornady, and speer cheap. They cover a lot of ground.

    Old manuals are always a great source for a lot of powders. If your gun is new, check with the manufacturer. Second hand book stores have lots of old manuals.

    Always cross-reference with multiple sources
    Older recommendations tend to be less lawyer-conservative
    DuPont load data from years past is my Bible.

    I forgot to post I got a Lyman’s 50th from a seller on arfcom.

    Haven’t done any reloading but I have my truck and Beemer back so now I can rent a car dolly and take the Honda to get a catalytic converter and inspected.

    My try out some loads this morning before work.
