I use Star 148HBWC, over 2.7 bullseye. Seems to be the standard load when I started asking around. I haven't found that the make of the case matters, in fact I've mis-matched them and still get better than 10 ring accuracy at 50 yards.

Hi Ken, That seems to be the standard load, I dont use it but it works good, my load is VV N320 with 148 precision bullet and I have found out that the cases really do matter I dont mix head stamps the group moves if I do.

Any good 148HBWC bullet. 2.9 of 231 or HP38 powder.
Seat bullet just below the mouth with lite to med. roll crimp.Try to use all same brass manufacture. Federal primers best bet.

I'm using a local brand of 148 gr cast double-ended wadcutter. I seat the bullet out just a hair and use winchester small pistol primers. I use 3.2 grains of WW231 with mixed headstamps. Out of my six-inch 686, I get sub 1-inch groups (if I do my part).

Hi guys.
I've had good success with W231 at 3.0 with 148 gr.
Old bullseye load I use to go with.

I've had good luck with 3.2 of 231, Federal primers and a CP bullets BBWC. The only problem I've had with cases is the mil spec +P are thicker above the cannelure and the case gets a ring from the WC seating deeper. Just make sure that any cases with either a military headstamp like WCC91 or FCC87 is picked out before you load them up.
