These are kinda long range plinking loads. I've got a stash of Berger 140g's and some Lapua brass so I can get serious. Also prepped some .223 & .44 mag brass. I seem to reload in waves. Haven't done much in a while. I need to set the progressive up to pound out some more .38 special. I seem to shoot a lot of that.Haven’t had the opportunity to reload any 6.5 CM, but the Hornady factory ammo, using the 147 grain ELD round, is by far the most accurate round I’ve ever shot!

Both bullets are good and have their niche.What bullet do you load in your 38s? I was gifted about 300 125s and 158s so I need to load those so I can make a decision on which die to get(unless I find one for sale)so I can get to casting.
Pretty much whatever I can find these days. I've loaded lots of both of those weights. For plinking loads I've used thousands of the 158g Hornady semi wad-cutter lead cowboy rounds. I use the same die set for my .357's, but have different bullets for those. For my low level .357's, I've used a lot of the Xtreme hollow points (they have a thicker plating so you can run them hotter.) For full-house .357's, I usually use 158g jacketed bullets.What bullet do you load in your 38s?
