Does anyone have any data on the effect of dropping bbl length to 2 inches? I am particularly curious about .38 spl and .44 S&W spl. I found data on .357 mag in the 13th edition of the Speer manual.

Thanks, Bill. From the vast spread in the data that is in Speer there are other factors than barrel length at work, and cylinder gap is most likely a big one. I frequently load Unique and have been looking at it with 200 gr copper plated lead bullets in the .44 S&W spl. I will try the Unique with copper plated lead in the .38 spl as well. Powder burning rate also has to be a factor and pehaps crimping style as well. I'm still hoping someone will be able to refer me to some published data, warts and all.

That's it!

Thanks, Jeff. That's what I was searching for. It's also a good website in its own right. Fred:)
