How to Reload a .38 Special cartridge and kill a beer
Learn how to get the maximum performance for the lowest price. The first thing you want to do is not even worry about buying a reloading manual; there's more information in there than anybody could ever learn, and it won't really help you make the most accurate load, so throw it away! Next, you'll need some handgun brass, or expended casings, from the shooting range. Then, you'll need some bullets, which can be iron cast wheel weights. Now you will need some black gunpowder. After all of this, you will need a sophisticated loader, like the Lee Loader. Now you are completely ready to reload a .38 Special (.38 Spl or the .38 Smith & Wesson Special).
Select the case you would like to use, put it in the decapping holder and drive out the primer. Put a new primer into the cartridge case, add powder, and install the bullet. If you do it right, you'll get a load that is economical and easy to shoot in your revolver, pistol, or other handgun.
This video tutorial will show you exactly how to reload a .38 Special cartridge and kill a beer.
