Well, this weekend I had planned on knocking out some 12GA shot-shells but found that I had failed to restock my shot, oh well. Our local Sportsman's Warehouse reopened and while I was there this weekend, I picked up some Hornady Critical Defense for my .38 special. The ammo has fantastic reviews and even better specs but at $23 for 20 rounds, I decided it was time to sit down and build myself a equally fantastic self-defense load. I've triple checked the cases, length, thickness, pocket uniformity, etc. Ready to start working up some loads this week!
