Did we make an impulse buy?
Well, not sure about impulse and it was back in March, but ...

Tangential question; if one was looking to load .38 S&W to close to the British .38/200 load, what additional would be required? Presumably load data from somewhere and possibly the correct sized bullet mold. Thanks much.
I did the same thing a couple years ago, bought a WW II Enfield revolver. It's pretty much the same gun as the Webley, so much so that there were lawsuits, as I recall reading.

I bought a 180gr mold from Accurate Molds that approximates the WWII 178gr fmj bullet, and worked up a load with Unique that matches the velocity. I've been happy with how well it shoots.

I've found that I don't shoot it a lot, so I probably would have been better off just buying some commercial cast bullets rather than buy a mold. I do enjoy shooting it, for the novelty as much as anything, but it's just not a real high-volume kind of gun, for me. If I'm going to shoot hundreds of rounds through a revolver in an afternoon, it'll be a butter-smooth S&W instead.

Load data for 38/200 is available from lots of sources. I had to find a mold that dropped bullets large enough to shoot well. You may have to find a custom bullet maker to get a good bullet for these. You will need a bullet that measures .361 to .363.
A good place to ask is Cast Boolits .com DR
