I had a head scratcher today at the range too using Hodgdon, and Lee's recomended loads for .38 spcl using 148 grain HBWC and Trail Boss. I am a huge advocate of Trail Boss.

Well I ran from start to max load. Two at the starting load I could watch leave the barrel only do drop literaly 10 feet away. The next one squibbed. The max loaded ones made it a measured 12 feet from the barrell. All of the max loaded ones were to 99% case fill with those bullets. I hand weighed each charge too.

Luckily I loaded some with a stand by load of Bull's Eye that worked, and worked well.
No matter how many times you do it and nothing happens it only takes something going wrong one time to kill you.
