This is very good practice and plinking ammunition. Not as powerful as some, but as reliable as any. I have fired way over 1000 rounds of this for IDPA practice, while using a more powerful round for competition. These have functioned perfectly in RIA 1911's, Taurus 1911's, Colt 1911's, and Taurus PT38S's. You need not worry about proper functioning. - J. W.
These cartridges are quite effective in my old '69 Llama automatic. They haven't failed to fire or load and they carry quite a punch. The flat point punches some nice holes in paper over plywood targets. I'd recommend these to all .38 shooters. Able's is quite prompt in getting the product out to the buyer. Good job, Able's. - W. L.
