To date the 38 special Federal 125 Nyclad round in both standard pressure and +P can still be readily located for purchase in the US from various vendors in 50 round boxes. Other time proven .38 special rounds for snub nose revolvers are the Remington 125 gr SJKTHP and the Federal 158 gr Nyclad rounds; both readily available for purchase as well in 50 round boxes. The Remington round is also highly accurate from a 2" and longer barrel revolver.

The Nyclads are drying up though. Last time I checked I only found one source with any quantity and they had it priced accordingly. Still see the odd box at shows now and then.

My favorite load in older snubs.

Pat

Could you post one or two sources for the .38 Special 125 grain standard pressure Nyclad loads? Have been searching for a source and have been unsuccessful. Many thanks.

Has anyone besides myself noticed, that even at Walmart, ammo prices have skyrocketed over the past two months!? Even if you can find .38 spl they are selling for about 15 dollars for 50 rounds and UP! .223 Rifle ammo is not to be found and if available sells for over 8 dollars for 20 rounds. That is 40 for 100 or about 40 cents a round.....and that is at walmart. Many internet sites sell it at 50 cents per round. Wow! Does anyone have any idea if this has hit the reloading market of available brass, bullets, and powder....plus primers? I guess Ted Kennedy is going to price us out of shooting.

Only slightly off topic, all ammo prices have gone insane due to materials and transportation costs. 9mm ball was about $5 a box when you bought 10 boxes at Dick's in 2006. It is now $10 a box. All of them, to include 38 SPL have gone up nearly double.

9P, 45 ACP, 223/556, 308/762 and 762 SOVIET have all gotten hard to find and pricey when you do. 545 SOVIET is not a walk in the park either. 762 RUSSIAN is still out there as a bargain.

And, I can tell you that component prices are very expensive too. Primers, powder, bullets and cases. All expensive.

OldTex,

I just looked at all my bookmarks but couldn't find it. Several sites have been hijacked though, so no telling.

I vaguely recall the company was in New Jersey, and carried a lot of discontinued ammo. Ring a bell with anyone else? Maybe it was Ammoman but they don't have it listed.

Sorry...best I can come up with.


Regards,

Pat
