.38/.357 160 Gr. RN - Sized to .358 (Typical). Other sizes available upon request call or email for options.
This bullet is extremely popular with IDPA, USPSA and ICORE shooters, shoots very accurately in stock revolvers and with it’s pointed nose and no shoulder these bullets speed load extremely well. Works great with .38 short colt brass too. Requires a taper crimp.
In .38 Super Revolvers we recommend these be sized to .357
Been using this bullet in the .38 Short Colt and winning matches in action shooting. Running them at about 825fps in my .357 Magnum revolver. Unknown on 16th Oct 2019
I was fortunate enough to win the "Freedom ICORE Match" this past weekend at GCL. With 160gr Bayou's. GCL hosted the NE Regional ICORE match last year and held the freedom match concurrent with the uspsa "firecracker match" this year. Both great matches. Shot both with Bayou's and never had to think about my loads which helped a bunch with this much shooting in one weekend.
Thanks for helping with another win! Bayou's are my go to bullet!

Not a pro shooter or reloader, but enjoy both tremendously. Learned about Bayou Bullets from a USPSA survey of competition revolver shooters. Built 4 loads and tested/chrono'ed at the range today. Everything positive that I've read is true... less powder for more power, and accurate. My primary is a S&W 586-3, 4 inch, which is what was used for the chrono data.
Using TiteGroup, with a COAL of 1.51, Federal Match Small Pistol primers, and brass saved from factory 38 loads, obtained these result averages (minimum 10 rounds per data set)
3.2 grains: 705 fps, 9 fps std dev, 112 PF
3.4 grains: 732 fps, 14 fps std dev, 117 PF
3.6 grains: 770 fps, 10 fps std dev, 123 PF
3.8 grains: 778 fps, 13 fps std dev, 124 PF
I can't explain the minimal difference between 3.6 & 3.8, but not too concerned. I've found the load that I want, and the bullet that I will hopefully be using for many IDPA & Steel Challenge matches to come.
Great product... Incredible personal customer service... you have changed the game for me.

Been using these for ICORE for a couple of seasons. The coating is very uniform and have had zero leading issues... unlike some competitors. Customer support is top notch as well. There is no reason not to purchase this product from Bayou. Tom on 23rd May 2019
I was shooting a copper clad RN bullet in a 38 short colt. I was having trouble making power factor. I switched to this coated bullet and picked up 70 fps. Al on 23rd Mar 2019
Bayou Bullets offer a great product and service. I like being able to order bullets sized to fit my revolvers. Barney Niner on 2nd Feb 2019
These have a great shape for speed loading during ICORE or other action revolver activities. Tom in KC on 21st Oct 2018
Looks like I'll win limited club champion again this year in ICORE .
Bayou's let you concentrate on shooting and not having to think about how you loads are going to work.
Always great bullets, service and people at Bayou!
Get ya some!!! Neil Cassata on 6th Oct 2018
Early in the loading process here in my home. This bullet and the techs at Bayou Bullets were extremely helpful. Clean, accurate, easy to load. Best product available and I am so impressed with the uniformity for a cast bullet. Purchase some for your own loading. Gene Maffey on 24th May 2018
The first and last bullet we'll ever use in our S&W 929's. They just fall in the cylinder during reloads. Also going in my wife's 686 when it gets back from the smith.
