I have some of those as well & some more +P+ from Federal, also with '79 & '80 headstamp dates. They came in a big batch of brass salvaged from a basement that was "laid up" in '87 IIRC!
Great, fresh from the great ".38 Spl Vs .38 Spl +P case debate
" where I gave up on a consistant result & sorted 2 big plastic tubs into gallon ziplocs I have to go back through 4 gallons of ".38 Spl +p" & seperate out the +P+ now!
Thanks for the info though its interesting.
Out of curiosity does anyone have .38 Spl +P+
loading data? Was there ever a 125 gr +P+ load?
