Load for 200 Grain 38S&W Bullet

I finally got a mold to cast my own 200 grain bullets for my Enfield and S&W Victory revolvers in 38 S&W that once shot those 200 grain bullets they used in WWII. I use Unique pistol powder and I could use some load data. The mold casts at .365 and I made my own .361 sizer, so it should fit well in the barrel. Any info would be appreciated.

Best Regards,

Mark

I have loaded 2 types of 200gr .361" cast bullets that I bought online. One in the shape of the latter jacketed bullet and another very blunt bullet like the lead original.

Both were very accurate over 2.2gr of Unique (620fps MV). Good enough to hit a moving man sillouette target 3 out of 6 shots @200 yards.

Moderator RapidRob witnessed and video taped this. My load work up IS DONE!
