.38 Rnfp ?

I'm looking to load .38 for cowboy using RNFP cast bullets. Do I use the same info for the SWC or what other?

I would say yes as long as they are the same GRAIN bullet.But from what I have seen the cowboy stuff is loaded fairly light anyway.

Hodgdon's has some very nice cowboy action load data for all types of lead bullets. Check out their site under that section and you can find all you should need if you dont mind using their powder. I've had good experiences with all of it I've tried so far though. I get hard cast (about 21bh) locally and I've been loading them at regular jacketed specs because he casts them so hard without probs, but I'm sure you dont wanna go that heavy for CA.
