Not a thing, but I did the math and realized that I am reloading Full-House 158gr plated .357 for about $7.14/box of 50, compared to about a ~$27 box. I am NOT unhappy, every round... Recoil and accuracy seem identical.
WOW $6.65/box of 50 for 158gr .38's is pretty good too!

AVG is ~73.47% savings reloading for the wheel gun, so I'll buy THAT for a dollar!
About the same as reloading plated for my 9mm, with 124gr.

Until I just did the math, I never realized I was paying ~>$0.50/rd for .38 and .357... and just bought it for the brass.

So, where are you finding Bear Ck. moly bullets? Scarcer than hen's teeth in my parts. Please, share. Oh, and 50 rounds of target .223 for my Howa 1500. Gonna see if I can make some single holes this Sunday.

LOL! You need a bigger bench! But, you're good. Load away. This is for SunsetIE.

49 rounds (because one of casings took a suicide dive off of my bench when I wasn't looking) of .22 Hornet. . . . that had been fire formed to .22 K Hornet.

Didn't know my rassin' frassin' pistol barrel was a K, because numbers hidden beneath a dork flarting scope mount.

WSR primers, 12.5 gr Lil Gun, 40 Grain Noslers. . . some of which are spinning in the casing after seating the dad gummed bullet, because that' just my dumb frattin' housesnickle viper luck lately.

Lee crimp die on the way to cinch things down a tiny bit more.

Blasted poop flirt rattle crap camel flirt. You blonker frattle feet sturckle frat! Of a womp sack butt ratter bottom fodder... ...smick melly whop walker. Drop dumb fratten house stickle fifer!

I'm a little irritated.
Most of the bullets seated fine, but some of them just spin around like little pointy ballerinas in the middle of a pirouette.

Before, standard PPU Hornet. After, wait, what?
