From time to time I see people asking about Super Vel ammo and I have had a full and a partial box of .380 Super Vel 88gr JHP for a while now (mine were packaged in Shelbyville, Ind) and I decided to burn off a few to see what the hub bub was all about.. Let me say that these things are H O T, I am talking shooting fire 2 feet out of the end of a TCP hot, so hot in fact that every one of the spent cases have a massive bulge bordering on complete case failure. My wife and I went through 100 rounds of S&B .380 and I checked a dozen or so of the spent brass and found no deformations of any kind so I dont think it is a lack of chamber support in the PT738 barrel. Without further ado, here is a shot of a couple of the fired cases, I have a shot that isnt cropped if you want something clearer but not nearly as close up. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
