MY GOODNESS???This is the first I've heard of this;
I doubt it from the Bull Company as they have discontinued all 38 Supers into AMERICA.Not really surprising I guess since they chamber the full-sized 1911 in 9mm. Bet we never see a Commander-sized .38 Super.
EXACTLY!!!Also make them with lightweight alloy frames, if the weight is the same as a government model kinda defeats the purpose.
well on the simplest of terms think your most modern 9 MM projectile/ cartridge and add about 150-200 Feet per second and you got your answer.To the .38 super lovers of the 1911 platform; respectfully indulge my ignorance.
Due to the dearth of semi rimmed .38 super brass in most areas, and possible inherent problems associated with it, what's it advantage over the 9 mm parababellum on the 1911 platform?
...since technology has brought us some factory 9mm loads in the 1,350 fps. + range.
Would you say it's greatly misunderstood, sort of like the .41 magnum is?
OK, so are you saying bullet weight is more important than amount of ammo??A .45ACP with an 8-round magazine has as much bullet weight as a 16-round 9mm. I'll take .45ACP for anything in the 1911 family, thanks.
IF speaking of a Government 1911 then I agree, they do carry well being so flat however.Really heavy for a carry gun.
When I hear 1911 I think .45.
Problem is the platform is so popular folks want it in different calibers.
I see this most in competition shooting.
Ok, you've sold me on most of the points; what about brass availability?well on the simplest of terms think your most modern 9 MM projectile/ cartridge and add about 150-200 Feet per second and you got your answer.
I have heard the semi rimmed stuff for years and years, I been shooting/loading 38 Auto and super for about 35 years or more and have yet to incur any problems with the round.
in heavier projectiles its a good bit more advantage.
