Default hOW DOES 38spcl COMPARE WITH 9MM?

Hello all


38SPCL compares favorably with 9MM, the various HP and loads of 38SPCL in fact can even better the 9MM! If a Good Bullet weight, pushed to a Greater Velocity, it works! Ploice didn't give up the 38SPCL due to bad loads, they had to carry crappy FMJ and somewone thought giving them 19 shots might help when they couldn't hit what they needed to with 6? Been there, Done that, Most LEO are not Gun People! Fact is fact, YUP, some are the exception, but most suck with thier issue handgun! If you go with a Good HP like the 125 GN or 115 GN Spper HP, you will drop them in thier tracks! Isn't that whats it's all about? I carry a 9MM and a 38SPCL, I use what works for me and what I have seen work, as I tested it!
