    148 gr HBWC

    Posted by Donn on Jan 15th 2020

    This is probably the best HBWC on the market today. Consistent weight, clean and great accuracy in my S&W M-52 with 2.6 gr of Bullseye.

    Great wadcutter!

    Posted by Patrick G on Sep 16th 2019

    So, I was ready to give up on my old Model 52. I'd used the old "filthy" disco'ed Remingtons that were .360, but ran out years back. This bullet MADE ME LOVE THE GUN AGAIN! I can now use it with confidence. At our weekly league, my second slow fire scored a 90, which is pretty good for me for CF *anything.* The flyers were mine, and when I did my job, the bullet's hit 10's. Easy to load (Starline + 3.1 HP38 loaded .001 sub case with a heavy crimp) and very consistent. Thanks, guys--buying more.

    148 gr. HBWC-ML

    Posted by Mike Generallo on Apr 30th 2019

    I am on my 4th box (4000) or reloading these for my model 52. I have reduced my load to 2.5 gr of Bullseye powder and the level of accuracy is amazing. Would it be the same with other HBWC's, maybe, but I am using PD and until they fail to give great performance I will continue to load them.

    Great Match Round !

    Every match shooter of any merit knows the 2.7grn of Bullseye and a 148gr HBWC has been THE match load for years... and nothing has changed. These shoot as well through my S&W Model 52 as any version I've ever shot in the last 47 years. It's just as great in my PPC revolvers as well... can't find better today.

    38 CAL 148GR HBWC-ML

    Posted by Mike Generallo on Oct 17th 2018

    I bought the 38 CAL 148GR HBWC-ML because I could not find Hornady at a reasonable price. The reviews were good so I took a chance. I only loaded 250 to start. I shot today at my gun club and the results were amazing. I shot only 25 rounds but I kept them all within 2 inches shooting my S&W 52-2. Definitely will buy again. They are not pretty, but they are accurate and the price is right.

    I've had good results with Precision Delta HBWC. This time I went with the Match Lube. Looking forward .Thanks again. Al W.

    Lube is not perfect

    Posted by David on Jul 9th 2018

    In the PPC circuit I compete in, nobody will shoot anything but these bullets out of a revolver. They are extremely accurate. I found the match lube to be a little thin and I get some leading in my gun. I've read that this could be my gun's fault however. I found that adding a little lee tumble lube (I have a ton on hand and don't use it for anything else) seems to help. You can't touch the economy of these bullets in any case. 6.5 cents per bullet (with a 2 case order on current promo) is about half the cost of almost anything else out there, and it's great that they're so accurate. The only other hiccup is that the bullets could be packed a little tighter to keep them from knocking around so much in the box. The ones shown in the picture are pristine, but what you get is just a little rougher. Still, the accuracy speaks for itself so this must be just cosmetic. I'll take pretty targets over pretty bullets every time.
