38 Super

The .38 Super or .38 Super Auto is a pistol cartridge that fires a .356 caliber bullet. It was introduced in the late 190s as a higher pressure loading of the .38 Auto. The .38 Super has gained distinction as the caliber of choice for many top practical shooting competitors. The cartridge was designed for use in the M1911 Pistol and was capable of penetrating automobile bodies of the late 1920s. When the .357 Magnum was introduced in 1935, this advantage of the .38 super was no longer enough to lure police departments and officers from the traditional double-action revolver.
