    I've been shooting True Blue behind lead in my LCRx3 lately. It is a very fine spherical powder, pores/meters very well. Goes bang like it's supposed to.

    The max load in a 38 Special case behind 130gr lead bullets is around 6gr. That leaves a lot of room in there. I didn't concern myself with that - Bullseye is always that way. But - this powder burns dirty. Both soot and chunky stuff, something like light-load Unique used to be. The gun cleans up OK, but since I've been talking about True Blue lately I figure you ought to have this info too.

    Wow, not my findings at all.
    I have been surprised at how versatile it is from very light loads to near max and a range from .45 Auto to 10mm Auto.

    I'll go along with 'versatile'. It's something like Unique that way too.

    I've about decided to go back to 3N37 for 38Spl 'warm' loads. It's versatile too, and burns a lot cleaner. Just can't go quite as light - but I have Bullseye and HP-38 for that.
