I need some info from someone much better versed in reloading than myself. I load 38 spl 148 HBWC using 2.4 grains of Clays. Not much wiggle room with Clays as the min. load is 2.3 grains and the max is 2.5grains. While looking at the load data from Hodgdon, I noticed that the load data for Titegroup showed a wider range, higher velocities while having less pressure. Is there a logical reason not to use the Titegroup since it would yield a little higher velocity while generating less pressure? I guess the pressure is what has me concerned as the velocities are not that important in this type of load, and I do not want to much velocity using the hollow based bullets.
