38 super SD loads
I have been loading 147gr. Silver Tips with 47gr. Blue Dot and they are accurite and hit Hard . I shot a wild pig with 0ne and it droped her . the wound chanel was big for a .356 bulit and I think that the ST is one of the most over look SD round out there AND in 32 auto thay have more stoping power than a 380 with other factory loads . thanks for all the responces to my post .

My "Hot" .38 Super load is uses Vihtavuori 3N37, and is for the Springfield only.
I'm planning to offload it though. I don't shoot it very often, as I've gotten older I've become more of a fan of blued steel and walnut and factory ammo is twice the price of 9mm. Here in OZ I can buy 9mm for $21/50, .38 Super is $48.00 for fmj.
Given the above a 9mm Colt 1911 will see more range time than a plastic .38 Super Limited gun.
If you have survived two brain tumours I'm not going to worry about having to decypher your posts, The fact that you are posting is good enough. My dad has had two strokes. I've seen up front the difficulty with speech and short term memory this can cause. Good luck, I hope your health improves.
Don't worry about your posting and spelling. Sometimes we like to "rag" on a post. Take care of yourself and I'm praying for you and better health. And I wish you happiness with a .38 Super, it is a great cartridge.
I've had the opportunity to shoot a lot of competition pistols. The comp 38 super is the most amazing pistol I've shot. I just can't/won't bring myself to pay the pistol & reloading price to run it regularly.
A couple of resources for it...
Please say yes.
If I could only own one caliber it would be the super. When I first got into the shooting games I picked up a Colt 1911 in Super, cause I wanted to shoot a single stack and I wanted to be able to shoot major or minor. Handloading, I can make pussycat 85 grain loads that shoot like .38 target rounds or I can bump it up to 160-180 grain thumper loads that'll hit like .357's....whats not to like
1994 Government model...
Nope there are none of us around...
I am so glad you can still enjoy your shooting hobby so screw the spelling, we can live with it. I live with medical problems too but that does not define me, I define me. Carry on my friend.
OK, that's nice for you.
Seems easyg, you're looking to pick a fight. I don't see why. Is your point that there should be fewer good calibers and less choice for shooters? Are you upset that the 357 Sig was introduced in 1986 but that there are still fans of the 38Super (not to mention the 9mm and 40S&W) who appreciate a good caliber and the guns it comes in and have not switched to the 357 Sig and given up on others? Or do you just want to mildly insult folks for not being as bright and insightful as you are? Or do you want a show where folk protest that their favorite round is better than another fellas choice? Which is it or is it something else?
