A friend worked up a 180gr and pretty hot load that shoots really well in my 1894. My question is will it hurt to use this heavy load all the time? I'm still trying to find sights that I like but at 50yrds. it hold a 3" group and at 100yds it hold about a 6.5" group. I'm betting that when I get some sights I can see with I can tighten those numbers up a bit. The bigger loads also feed better than .38's. I think I can reload enough at a good enough price not to bankrupt me.
