    Opinions on Winchester Supreme Elite 38spcl?

    Any reviews/opinions on Winchester Supreme Elite ammo in 38spcl +P 130gr JHP "Bonded Personal Protection"? I just bought a 38 revolver (4 inch barrel medium frame Taurus) for home defense and the store had mainly very light 38 hollow point ammo (110gr - 130gr) and no 158 gr LSWCHP loads, so this looked like the best pick.

    I do like the +P 158 grain loading for defensive use in the .38 Special but would have certainly given your choice a try over any of the lighter stuff.

    I've not heard of that particular loading before. I'd like to pick some up for testing.

    No matter what ammo debates start here, everybody likes the Gold Dot. Let's be realistic, the PDX is the same thing. It should work fine. Your 4 inch will make the most of a medium weight JHP unlike a 2 inch snub.

    Cool

    For years I carried a .38 spl revolver loaded with 158 gr LSWCHP +P as a duty weapon in the 70's and early 80's before the semi-auto revolution. Down here in south Florida we called it the Miami load but up north they called it the Chicago load or the FBI load. I like this load in a 4" revolver. It generally shoots to point of aim and is controable. I am not farmiliar with the exact load you are talking about however Winchester, Federal and Remington all make the aformention round and it works well. There are alot of good loads out there today. Shot placement is the deciding factor.
