    Federal Nyclad .38 special +p 125 grain

    Just curious if anyone has run across these. Federal NYCLAD 125 grain in +p. 38 special. I've read they were the dept of Treasury load but no actual data or articles. Any thoughts or insight would be nice!

    No, neither +p or standard pressure. I still carry Federal Nyclad 125gr standard pressure in my non +p airweight. I haven't been able to replenish my supply and I have often tried to locate them...to no avail.

    They were popular 30 years ago and made a slight resurgence 5-10 years ago.

    They were and are a good round in the standard loading. +P is not required, but they are out of production and not really available anymore. Too bad, it is my preferred sd round.

    Do you have a source for that? Everything I read indicated Federal discontinued them.

    Just a product page. They are not listed in the 2013 catalog and a dealer told me they were discontinued.

    Some very nice person sent me a box earlier this year for testing, but this was the standard pressure version.

    I don't mean to be a smart alec here but I wish that people would stop listening to the guy behind the gun counter, half the time they have no idea what they're talking about. I just went to the Federal site scrolled down to the bottom of the page and viewed thier 2013 catalog. Guess what is a listed product within?...... yup the 125gr Nyclad HP. Here is a link to the page Federal Premium 2013 Catalog

    I know Ayoob and his crew spoke highly of the round and said it had a good 'street record'. 336A is right, it is in production as far as I know, I've never seen a box of it though.
