Most reloaders who use cast lead bullets do so for a variety of reasons.  First is usually economy, cast lead bullets cost less than jacketed or plated bullets.  More important to most shooters is the fact that properly loaded ammunition with a cast lead bullet is often more accurate than the same ammo with a jacketed bullet.  The most common cast lead bullet style is the semi wadcutter, followed by the lead round nose bullet.  Often overlooked is the tapered or truncated cone bullet.  The .38 Caliber 125 Grain Truncated bullet is ideal for loaders who want a light weight target round for use in practice shooting.  It chambers easily by hand as well as with a speedloader.  It also functions well in tube fed rifles used in cowboy action matches.   An added advantage is the fact that target analysis is easier due to the flat point of this bullet leaving a cleaner hole at the point of impact.   Load data and bullet weight is the same as the 125 Grain Round Nose Flat Point bullet typically used for SASS Competition.

This bullet is normally loaded for light recoil.  It is made with new alloy, mixed to Lyman specifications with 4 percent tin, 4 percent antimony and 92 percent lead.  This bullet is lubricated with Magma Bullet Lube (Red).  It is also available by special order only, sized and lubricated with molybdenum disulfide (Moly Coated) for those shooters wanting less smoke when shooting lead bullets.
