What powder, and bullets are you using? Care to share your load?
I'll chime in, too.

If you aren't pushing a 124/125 grain bullet to at least 1250 fps, then you're just shooting another 9mm. Nothing wrong with that. Many, myself included, shoot thousands of 38+P's thru 357 magnum guns. But every now and then it's fun to put the pedal to the floor.

I screened 13 powders, using published data, and found 2 that would push a 125HAP to 1350-ish, and put 10 into < 3" at 50 yards. I could get better accuracy at 9mm velocities, but I have 9mm's for that.

Read about it here ...

I just purchased my first 38 super from a fellow addict. I can find find two brands of ammo available at a "reasonable" price.
Fiocchi 129 gr. FMJ 1200fps, or
PMC 130 gr. FMJ 1100fps?

If you have experience with one or both, a quick response would be appreciated. I'm going to try to place an order tomorrow.
Thanks!
FIOCCHI all day. Then reuse that brass and start loading with it and the starline brass you also bought
