    Where can I get full power .38 super automatic ammo?

    Are there any ammo companies that load .38 super automatic to it full power these days? What is the FPS and muzzle energy for the .38 super auto when loaded to its full capacity? I looked at the specs on corbon's power ball ammo and its impressive throwing a 100gr. bullet at 1400 FPS,how close is this to full power .38 super specs? Thanks for any help guys.

    Remington & Winchester both do full power .38 Super ammo, including +P loads. (Although I think +P in .38 Super is redundant).

    Corbon has a .38 Super 115 gr. JHP rated at 1425 fps and 519 ftlbs of energy from a 5 inch barrel.
    God bless our troops!

    I have both the Silvertip and the Corbon, they shoot nearly 2 inches apart so make certain you zero your weapon with the one you carry. That said, I regard ALL 38 Super ammo as +P.
