Great work, Josh. All we need now is a summary report of all the 38spec rounds you tested in a photo side by side with exp. and penetr. data.

Cheers,

og

Hi OG,



It'll be coming along. There is one more round that I've been requested to test, and if I can find it I'd like to include it.



Thanks,



Josh <><

Hello, and thanks for your report. I've been keeping my eyes & ears open but have neither read nor heard of any actual SD shootings with this load.



Best.

Thank you Mr. Camp. Is there any way you would trust it on those small Texas whitetails you have down there? Shooting a Northern whitetail with one is out of the question as the load is illegal to use (they start being legal at 4" 357 Mag) and while I'm somewhat impressed with its water ballistics, I'm still not sure about it taking the deer we have here cleanly. I would start at 124gr 9mm +P if it were legal.
