    380 lead bullet load data

    I found out about Missouri Bullet Co. and am interested in trying out some of their bullets. I found load data for all the bullet weights I use out of their selection for all my handguns except for my 380. they only have a 95 Grn. round nose which I cannot find data. Can anyone help out I would certainly appreciate it. JD

    ^^^That's about as good as you'll get, those are good loads.

  5. You then use data for the next heavier bullet.
    This should be covered in every reloading manual.
