Great thread, bet there will be some new additions:

All with 158 gr lead:

38 Spl:
3.5 grs Bullseye
4.0 grs WW231

38 Spl +P:
5.6 grs Power Pistol
5.0 grs Universal
5.2 grs Unique

38 Spl Remington "Hi-Speed" 158 gr lead equivalent (catalog number 6538, circa 1970) - 6.0 grs Power Pistol with 158 gr Speer LRN and CCI 500 primers

(chronograph confirmed that this load approximates velocity of the actual "Hi-Speed" round in actual revolver, not test barrel)

An old thread indeed but one that's always of actuality....even if the 9mm is grinding the popularity of the .38Spl away.
Mine are:
A)H&G no 50 WC sized .358 lubed with liquid Alox from LS Stuff White Lab.Cast soft(aprox BHN 6)on top of 2.6gr 700X in WW target brass.Holds into the 10 ring when I do my part.If out of it I know I done something wrong.
B)NEI 154gr SWC Keith type with my lube(50/50 beeswax/Alox 350 from supplier already mentionned+ hardened with parafin according to the season,soft in winter,harder in summer) over 3.8 gr Titegroup.Non +P and chronoed a little over 900fps from a 6''bbl.
