About This Winchester 38 Super Ammunition

This .38 Super ammunition is a high quality range load for your 1911. Each cartridge in this box of 50 fires a 130 grain full metal jacket bullet at 1,215 feet per second, delivering excellent accuracy. This is a relatively light-recoiling target load, especially in the all-steel 1911.

Like other Winchester ammo, these rounds are loaded at the company's newest ammo facility in Oxford, Mississippi and use non-corrosive Boxer primers. In keeping with .38 Super tradition, they also have nickel-plated brass cases.

All .38 Super ammunition is designated as +P to prevent it from being used in pistols chambered for the older .38 ACP. This is a non-issue for the vast majority of shooters, as any firearm chambered for .38 Super can fire ".38 Super +P" ammo.

The .38 Super is well known among competitive shooters due to its ability to meet IPSC Major power standards while handling more efficiently than the .45 ACP. Introduced in the late 1920s as a "hot" version of the .38 ACP, the .38 Super shares a case length with the wider .45 ACP and was designed specifically for the 1911. Compared to the .45 ACP, it sacrifices bullet weight and caliber in exchange for higher muzzle velocity, deeper penetration, extra magazine capacity and reduced recoil.

These traits foreshadowed the "wonder nine" trend half a century later and made the .38 Super 1911 a highly suitable combat pistol during the gangster era. Police officers appreciated the high velocity round's ability to punch through criminals' improvised body armor and vehicles. Not wanting to be outdone by the long arm of the law, notorious outlaws like John Dillinger also used the .38 Super during their crime sprees. A few manufacturers in recent years including SIG and Taurus have also produced .38 Super handguns; nevertheless, the cartridges remains closely associated with the 1911 niche, where it serves ably in both self-defense and competition target shooting roles.
