Hello. I've heard that this is essentially the same as .38 Super brass, but w/o the semi-rim and that's it's supposed to prevent "dipping" in higher capacity magazines and make most pistols more reliable in feeding a wider number of bullet shapes.

I have never even seen it and would sure appreciate the observations of those who have.

I'm wondering how much if any the extractor would need to be altered and if altered, would it work with standard .38 Super cases?

Best.

I used to modify 9x19mm chambers on Tokarevs with a .380" straight fluted reamer and throat with a drill, but now I have a 9x23mm reamer.

The two types of brass I use are Starline 9mm Supercomp and Win 9x23mmWin brass. The Win is thicker and has less case capacity. The best load I had last year was WSPM primers, 158 gr XTP, and LONGSHOT triple compressed in the Starline brass. This year I have found higher velocity with WSPM, 158 gr XTP, Power Pistol, and Win brass.

I have also converted a Star Super B.

The pistols I use have breech faces and extractors intended for the 7.62x25mm Tokarev, and the 9x19mm Luger respectively.
I have never had a jam.

You can send a pm to TaxPhD who has one and uses it in competition. I believe the only difference is true rimless and that his gun will work with either semi rimmed Super 38 or 38 Super Comp interchangeably. But I could be wrong... :eek:
