History of 38 Super Bullets

.38 Super ammo, officially introduced by Colt in the late 1920s as the “.38 Super Automatic,” was developed as a higher pressure loading of the .38 ACP due to issues of poor penetration encountered by law enforcement. This higher pressure .38 Super was successful in providing superior ballistic performance, making it highly effective against early ballistic vests. This cartridge quickly gained a reputation for high velocity and exceptional accuracy, characteristics that made it a standout option during its early years. Throughout the decades, the .38 Super has evolved and maintained a loyal following, particularly among competitive shooters who appreciate its ability to offer a competitive edge in terms of speed and precision.
