  1. I didn't know this, thanks for confirming. I was trying to find tech details on the carrier block. Think I might load a few sample rounds ~1.5" to 1.55" and see if better than current.
  2. There are a number of good posts here about reloading .38 and overall I get on well with my ammo. However, when it comes to speed with the rifle I find my lever 'cams' a bit; it feels stiff under speed even after a couple of polish and slicking operations on the action. I have the standard brass carrier block and use 130 grain lead projectiles. I'm starting to think it's the overall length of my ammo being a bit short and the possibility of the next round in the magazine tube poking out into the block meaning I'm forcing it back up the magazine as I crank the lever. It might be minor but it slows things down and one miss is 5 seconds, so easy on the cranking.. I don't use .357 even though my guns are chambered for both. My ammo is admittedly short at 1.444" and thinking to load between 1.5 and 1.55" (the recommended OAL), but I am keen to hear from other .38 shooters with a '73 to see what OAL you find cycles really well?
