    Post FNG from Utah

    Hey folks, new guy here. I was attracted to this site based on some postings concerning the performance of the 38 S&W. Weird calibers always intrigue me, especially the calibers that were once military or police calibers. Makes you wonder if anyone ever intended someone to get out of a fight with those calibers. I look forward to more time spent with performance handloading and hope to learn some here and possibly add to the value.

    10 years of service as a Marine and 13 years in the army. Fired everything from the 38 to the Mark 19.

    I can't list my arsenal here, but I'm working on some defensive loads for 32 auto, 32-20, 38 S&W, 38 spec and 9mm. Wish me luck!

    Hope to learn from you good folks and hopefully see you at the range.

    -Mike

    WELCOME! Well, I'm not sure I follow the .38 as a weird caliber, as its still used by many as a viable defense load. The Buffalo Bore 158+P in particular, is rated nearly as high as some .357 ammo. Oh well, I’m tired so maybe I just misread your post. You’ll find a boatload of good information on this forum. If you’re more inclined to auto-loaders, you’ll also be happy by all the recommendations and firsthand accounts. Again, welcome aboard and post often.

    Regards,
    Dan

    Unless i misunderstand...the OP is talking about .38 S&W not .38 Special, and it is a seldom used caliber nowadays.
