You gotta love the 38 super...
Being a 38 super fan, I just had to add to this post.
I have three 38 super 1911s.
I do not have a favorite as one shoots as accurate as the next.
I have one Colt in blue(Cost $1000), one Kimber is stainless (Cost $1200) and one RIA in blue (Cost under $400).
There is however one thing that I might add....
The 38 Super is the same diameter as the 9mm, or .356"
I use 9mm bullets in reloads.
Then there is the 357 which is .357" or .358".
Here is where the fun begins.
I have two S&W model 60-14's and one S&W 686-4 which are 357's
I shoot 38 supers in them more that I shoot the 1911's.
If the extractor grabs the rim, then it works for me.
I often get this: Oh! You will foul the cylinder shooting such a short bullet in the S&W's.
Bunk! if that were the case, then shooting a wad cutter would have fouled every gun at the range.
The trick is only in a 357 and only if the extractor catches the rim.
BTW my info says the 38 super is 36,000 psi and a 357 is 38,000 psi.
