For the 9mm load my Lyman manual list that as a very near maximum load. The starting load is listed at 3.9 and a max of 4.5 grains. With a COL of 1.075 as a do not seat shorter than that or a spike in pressure can happen.


I would recomend starting the .38 spcl. using a listed starting load, and working up. Lyman list a starting load of 3.0 grains, and a max of 3.4 grains with a COL of 1.445 inches. .38 special is probably the esiest round to begin loading with.
