Default Georgia Arms - 38 Spl +P 158 gr LHP

Anyone try this ammo? Looks like a good price also. I read a review that it chronos near Remington's +P loading.

Looks like a great practice round.

Georgia Arms makes affordable 1st quality ammo. My favorite is a .44mag fmj moving at 1000 fps. Joe

I've shot a fair amount of their ammo, both new and Reloads in .38 and .357. Everything I've tried shot very well. Their lead bullets shoot very dirty but I would say as accurate as any other factory loads I've tried. They have a .357 jacked round called "Deer Slayer" if I remember the name correct and it's about as "hot" as anything I've ever used based on recoil, flash and bang.

Default Georgia Arms ammo

I have been using their reloads for many years and have not had a misfire or problem with their ammo. I order 1000 rounds of .40 caliber in can heat loose that is contained in a military ammo can. Since I sold my XD .40 and purchased the Springfield XD(E) in 9mm, I ordered 250 rounds from them a few weeks ago. I will try the ammo out next week at the range. The ammo was can heat that was shipped in the military ammo can. They have fast delivery by Federal Express and price was great. You will not be sorry for the purchase with that company,

Nick

Been using GA ammo since at least the 90's. Excellent stuff. Their .38 Special 148 gr. load is about idea for targets, etc. Sincerely. bruce.

I use Georgia Arms also, mostly .38 Special target loads, 148 grain wadcutters, and 158 grain SWC's.

I just ordered another shipment the other day, this time I ordered some of the 158 grain LSWCHP +P. I am also curious what people think about this load. Has anyone else used it? How is it compared to the bigger name ammo makers same load? Has anyone tested it? Chrono or gel?

Thanks,
Fox
