  1. Easiest solution - look for an 1851 Richards-Mason cartridge conversion revolver. Gives you exactly what you are looking for.
  2. Out of curiosity - have you checked to see if your sizing/de-priming die may have backed out a little bit? Also, you might check to see if the shell plate is set tight enough. Your sizing die should come right to the top pf the shell plate at position one at full stroke. There should be no up and down slop in the shell plate. Good luck and let us know what cures you problem
  3. Ok, here’s a thought starter: What does it take to recover the cost of a new Dillon SDB for loading .38’s? New SDB = $437.00 Consumables: 1,000 - 125 gn bullets = $50 / $.05 ea 1 lb Titegroup powder(7,000 gns) = $35/$.0092 per 3.2 gn load 1,000 primers = $35/.035 ea Brass = free (range brass) Commercial ammo = $300/1,000 = $.30 ea cost to reload: bullet = $.05 powder = $.0092. (3.2 gn load) primer = $.035 brass = -0- free range brass total: $.0942 ea Savings: scenario #1: $.30(commercial ammo) - $.0942(reload) = $.1458 savings or : scenario #2: HSM cowboy ammo from Cabelas- $23/50 rnds = $.46 ea. Reloading saves $.3658/round Break even: scenario #1: $437(SDB cost) / $.1458(savings) = 2,998 rounds to break even. Scenario #2: $437/ $.3658 savings = 1,195 rounds (about the same as .45 colt) to break even. 2,998 / 120 rounds per monthly match = 25 matches for scenario #1 1,195 / 120 rounds per monthly match = 10 match payback for scenario #2. The investment recovery will be faster if you buy more expensive ammunition. yes - reloading makes sense. (at least to me) just my $.02.....
