Where to buy 38 HBWC

Got a lot of time on my hands right now.
Just got finished cleaning and re-size/de-priming a coffee can full of 38 spl (haven't counted them yet) brass, 400 45 ACP and 60 45 LC. Took all day.

I want to reload the 38's w/148 gr HBWC, I have about 100 Hornady left that I bought from Midway a couple years ago and would like to get more. Don't have to be Hornady.

Another question, l have always trimmed my cases when loading the HBWC so they would be uniform when seating, is it necessary to trim them?

Just how many 38 spl brass will fit in a coffee can anyway, shew I gotta get a progressive.

38 Hbwc

Greetings Garbageman

I personally like to buy from Grafs & Sons; The price they quote is what you pay, including shipping - min order is $20 though.

I don't trim straight wall cases.

Take a look at the Lee Classic Turret press - seems to be getting excellent reviews, it's allot cheaper than a progressive

Midway has the Hornadys on sale until the end of the month. $11.99/250. Powder Valley has Zeros for $40.75/1000. I'll bet Powder Valley would even ship USPS in a flat rate box to save you some $$$. I just placed my first order with Powder Valley last week, and was VERY pleased with the service I got. The Hornadys are the only ones I've ever used, so I can't compare to anything else quality wise.
