Bright Stainless 38 Super? Hummmmmm, sounds just like the one I've been drooling over....mind if I ask what the final $$$$ were?
Try MD Smith's page: www.reloadammo.com
He has a few 38 Super loads listed, lead and FMJ.
This has some too: http://www.again.net/%7Esteve/page8a.htm
I've seen some other pages w/ really hot loads...actually printed them out, but the web address isn't there.
Here's what the printout lists....the hottest in vel from what I saw.
125gr D+J JRN bullet
9.2gr VV-3N37 1470fps posted on the USPSA BBS
124 gr Horn FMJFN
9.0gr VV-N350 1506fps from "Bench Topics" column in Handloader# 167
The printout says that they should be used in barrels that fully suport the cartridge...and start at 10% less.
I shoot a stock 38 Super, old, old model (1947 year made-still head spaces on the rim!!!) I'm feeding it 147gr bullets right now...plan on "retiring it"....and get a replacement. Haven't tried 125gr yet.
