"NEW" .38 Super 124gr Hornady XTP Hollow Point
Velocity: 1350 FPS
This ammo meets its advertised velocity and is very accurate. It is great to have a choice of a self defense round going at 1,350 fps using the 124 gr. Speer Gold Dot bullet. It is a much better choice than the 9mm+p. I have experienced no failures and have started to carry this round. It would be great if GA used nickel plated cases, even in the comp. style instead of semi-rimmed. With the SAAMI pressure set at 36,500, no other manufacturer seems to break the 1,350 fps barrier, but it is possible with powders like VV105. SAAMI should reclassify to 38,500 like the 9mm+P, or manufacturers should offer a +p+ version. 1,400 fps is very doable, but I do not mean to detract from this great round. I just ordered more.
