Hello all! I'm wondering if many of you own .38 supers out there. If so, where do you buy your ammo? I've been having a hard time finding good deals on .38 super ammo except at one range out here. I'm looking for some decent fmj stuff for the range and JHP for defense. Let me know if you have any recommendations. Thanks!

You're not going to like this, but you might want to think about handloading the Super because of the lack of reasonably priced target ammo.
I always bought Mag Tech, decent ammo at a decent price.

The original Super load was a 130 FMC at 1,300 FPS. Current factory loads run about 1050 FPS. Pathetic. I load 115 JHPS to around 1450 for serious work.
I like the super and have two at the present time. A series '70 Colt:
