Interesting. Not only is there is no data for 38 Short Colt, there's no N310 data for the 38 Special. Yet, I just posted a "Ransom rest" thread wherein I commented on a load of N310 under a bulk (dime apiece) 125JHP in 357 Magnum cases that launches a 125JHP at only 782 fps .... 12 of them inside 3" @ 50 yards from a 4" 66.

A super accurate mousefart load for the 357 is something that I wasn't searching for but I'm sure glad I found it.

I have a Taurus 445 Ultralite arriving tomorrow, which is a ~20oz snubnose pocketable 5 shot 44 SPL.

Realizing that I'm going to want to run some rounds thru it and that 44 SPL loads would be a handful in such a light gun, I finally found a reason to load up the 150 .44 Russian shells I got on a whim last year.

Hodgdon doesn't offer a 44 RUS load for 180gr coated LRN (Summers Ent), so I did a little research and came up with 3.5gr of Trail Boss as a fairly light load but enough above minimum that Trail Boss' somewhat uneven metering wouldn't be an issue. Trail Boss actually meters pretty well from my Lee Auto Drum, with every throw I measured today being 3.3-3.5gr.
