Circa 2002, in response to a thread on The Firing Line website, I bought a brand of ammo the name of which I cannot now remember, but I wish to try it again.

If I recall correctly, it is ultra-light and ultra-fast with minimal recoil.

Quite expensive.

My memory is fuzzy, but surely (I hope) someone will know and tell me the brand and/or web site.

No, that is not it.

I finally found it via Google search that turned up the thread I had read years ago:

http://www.thehighroad.org/archive/index.php/t-3371.html

See the post by Jeff OTMG.

Here is the web site of the company referenced by Jeff.

http://www.rbcd.net/

The web site appears unchanged from the time I saw it 4+ years ago.

I was out of the loop re guns and ammo for most of the past 4 years.

Is there anything I should know that I may have missed with regard to RBCD ammo?

Short answer = Lots - don't touch it with a 10 foot pole.

Thanks, JE223.

I decided to abandon the idea of trying another box of RBCD ammo (I bought one in January 2003).

Instead, in response to this tip (http://www.thehighroad.org/showpost.php?p=3364432&postcount=15) by Jim March, I have ordered from Buffalo Bore a box of this:

Standard Pressure Short Barrel Heavy .38 Special
158gr. very soft lead cast, SWC-HC gas checked bullet
854 fps (256 ft. lbs.) from S&W mod. 60, 2 inch barrel.

I was looking for non+P SD ammo that would not lead the barrel.

Ah! I just read your thread here (http://www.thehighroad.org/showthread.php?t=274139).
