    Nyclad 38 special no +p

    I have a friend searching for the Nyclads for a couple of his non +P snubbies but to no avail. I heard Federal discontinue them. Does anybody know any store that might still carry them or a good substitute (same performance, etc.) for them?

    we use the +P Nyclads...haven't seen standard pressure in a while, sorry...
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    The Nyclads were 125-grain? Perhaps Remington's 158-grain standard-pressure SWCs would be an alternative???

    Hello,

    This is not a Nyclad source, but it may be an alternative: Buffalo Bore is making standard pressure LSWCHP .38spl due to (assuming) the discontinuation of the Nyclad line.

    I'm not aware of any shootings, and I do not know how soft this stuff is. However, it is getting +P velocities with standard pressure.

    I have a stash of the +P Nyclads in 158 grain for my old S&W Mod 60 but you are going to ahve a hard time finding ANY Nyclads. They were discontinued and due to the setup costs to make them nobody else is going to. Blame their death on the rise of the mini-9mms.

    The Buffalo Bores look good. What gun is it that canot handle the +ps?

    Generally speaking, any aluminum frame Colt revolver, like the Agent & Cobra, and the early Airweight S&W guns (M12, M37, M38, M42) are not +P rated. The current production 3 digit model number Smiths are +P rated.

    In addition, I'd hesitate to shoot +P ammo in older steel framed revolvers like the Colt Detective Special and the S&W M36 because the heat treatment of the steel in these older guns was different from the more modern versions.


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.
