  • .38 acp......

    Jefferson and I have been discussing .38 acp and .38 super ammo. We both think it is basically the same (thanks for the help Jefferson). I can't stop there since I have 200 rounds I don't need.

    I heard somewhere......38 acp was originally for the OLD autos after 1900 or so, but can be used in a .38 super. The opposite holds for the .38 super (not for older guns).

    Any more knowlege on this?

    My understanding is that diminsionally they are virtually identical but that the .38 super is loaded alot hotter.

        The case head is thinner on the older 38acp ammo.
