    The new Wilson ammo I ordered arrived today from Midway USA. I have not shot any yet but it seems like nice stuff, just what you would expect from Wilson.

    I can not see any reason this would not become my carry ammo in place of the Winchester STHP I currently use. Wilson in a Wilson seems to make a sense to me. Sorry for the pics, still trying to learn how to take them, clicking them will of course enlarge the pics some.

    It will be awhile until I get to shoot any but so far I am happy with the purchase. The Wilson reputation for quality and consistency makes me more secured in my carry ammo than ammo from a "factory" does. Now I admit that might be just in my mind but I like the feeling of security the Wilson ammo gives me.

    The numbers they put up for their 38 Super look good. 124 grain at over 1300 fps. I'm glad to see someone else is making 38 Super, not a lot of great stuff out there right now. Many say a lot of the commercial Super ammo out there isn't as hot as it should be, with the exception of Cor-Bon. The Wilson stuff looks really good, can't wait to try some.

    Thanks for all the comments :)

    I would think it would be pushing 1250 FPS or so out of the 4" barrel of the Wilson Compact pictured. That is enough velocity to perform well IMO. I am also glad to see someone putting out quality .38 Super ammo.

    It seems like it is going to be some good stuff but I'd like to see some real world numbers and testing on it. All new ammo looks beautiful in the box. ;)

    I agree but to me the Wilson name makes me comfy saying that it has been tested extensively before release and it works. As they shoots 1000s and 1000s of rounds thru 1911s yearly I would guess they know what does and does not work ammo wise in the 1911 platform. Again it might just be all in my mind but the Wilson name instills confidence in me.

    Wow! I had no idea. I love everything Wilson produces or sells. If the ammo is as good as their pistols, it is bye-bye to Double Tap for me. And I really respect DT.

    Dayum, they loaded those long.

    XTP testing has been done ad nauseum. Expand a little, dig really deep. Only question is how fast they are driven.

    A .38 Super carry gun..... I love it. Ammo looks cool but I'm afraid to ask what Wilson charges for it.

    $24 per 20 rounds, in line with all other .38 Super JHP from Corbon, Double Tap and Winchester. The length issue must be a image issue with the picture, they are exactly the same length as the Winchester STHP. :)
