Reversed wadcutters

Does anyone else still load reversed wadcutters in their 38 spls? I find them to be unusually accurate in some pistols. I get child like glee out of shooting them through dead blanches or boards and seeing daylight. ( shades of Fearless Fosdick)

Reversed wadcutters

I remember doing that back in the 60's..Was all the rage

for a while in the gun mags for a while.. Of coarse in those days there was not a lot of expanding bullets available to the reloader.. If you were a caster you could make hollow points but didn't think that they were worth the extra work..

Yes sir,3.0gr of bullseye and the hbwc backwards and you had a killer load.. Never did shoot anything with them but big bars of soap to see the expansion..

Them were the days...

I used to load them with Taurus (not the gun maker) swaged HBWC's. I could never get very good accuracy with them, although I did pop a woodchuck with one. I swear the wound looked like I hit him with a .357, yet that reversed WC wasn't going 800 fps.
