I am a huge fan of using Trail Boss in the .38 Special.
I got some Trail Boss about 6 or 8 months ago. I have only loaded 50 rounds with it (happened to be 38 Special 148 DEWC's). They went 'bang' and seemed to be just fine. But that wasn't enough to make any real evaluations. I have other irons in the fire at the moment, but plan on testing it more this summer.

It (38 Special) is a low pressure round. Most powders at low pressure burn dirty. So by nature .38 Special tends to be a dirty round to shoot.
This needs to be emphasized because sometimes we loose our "baseline." When one is shooting target 38's, one should expect a certain amount of soot. Goes with the territory. We wash our hands and clean our guns afterward.
Gun control laws benefit only criminals and politicians - but then, I repeat myself.
