38 Cal 148 gr WC Type II

(5 customer reviews)


38 Cal 148 gr WC Wadcutter Type II Hard Cast Lead Bullets. This bullet is a true Hensley & Gibbs 50 Target handgun bullet. By far the most prolific design of all the Hensley & Gibbs bullet molds. This old school cast lead bullet design contains a crimp groove and the face of the bullet has a small nipple that tends to help when shooting over 25 yards. Perfect for Revolvers.

    Excellent, accurate bullet. The crimp groove sold me on these. I hand lube the bottom groove.

    Fast delivery, nice looking, easy to load, and they shoot very well. I have used these in 4 different Smith and Wesson 38 Special revolvers that I own, and they are very accurate while cutting a nice sharp hole. All of my shooting has been outdoors at 25 yards. I use 3.0 grains of Bullseye. I will definitely be ordering more. I see where one customer lubed the bottom ring, I did not, and haven’t had any barrel leading.

    38 148 gr. WC Type II. Stateline service was wonderful and the bullets are nicely cast. Sized correctly as ordered at .358″. I asked to be notified when they became available, which was about a week. I ordered immediately and the order shipped from PA to AZ in less than a week. Thank you.
