    Where to find .38 Special LSWCHP?

    I was wondering if anyone knew a good online source for .38 Special 158 grain LSWCHP +P rounds? Preferably made by Remington or Winchester. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    Shucks Steve - I was about to post that I know a guy who probably knows ....... and woosh - there you were.

    That is IMO a great SD round. Thx for all you contribute.

    I checked CTD out and found these..... http://www.cheaperthandirt.com/66333-7389-169.html

    They don't say anything about being SWC though. Just that they are a Lead Hollow Point. Are they the same thing?

    Thanks for the response guys!

    Aa far as I can tell, those are them. I just bought a box at Bass Pro Shops a couple of weeks back and it's the same ammo. They don't mark them as Semi-Wad cutter anymore I guess. They have the sharp wadcutter base and the soft lead HP just like in the old days.

    You could try Graf & Sons.

    They pay shipping, also.

    This is supposed to be some good stuff. I've not personally tested it. However, another gent who did reported that he didn't get consistent expansion.

    I am waiting to see some actual numbers before ordering, but it may be worth a shot.

    Yes they are getting harder to find. Imagine my suprise when I found them at Bass Pro. I didn't have any cash on me, so I made a trip back a couple of days later just to get some. Wish I could have bought more.

    Sportsman's Guide always offers the Remingtons in their ammunition section, but I haven't tried their availability:

    We have a Bass Pro Shop here but I never see any SD ammo other than the typical Federal Self Protection ammo. Thanks for the link falcon1 it's been a long time since I've seen sportsmansguide.com and I forgot all about them. Thanks!
