I have been trying to find and purchase this ammo since March 2021. I have an order in to another on line store.optiplanet They promised shipment in June , I ordered in March, then I get a notice it will be Nov 2021. I found sportsmanoutdoorsuperstore on line and place an email notice for availability. I got a notice in June and immediately placed my order. I received my ammo in the promised time and price. Price a little high, but at least they ship when promised, I called customer service with a question, A nice customer service agent answer the phone, answer my question. I am pleasantly surprised. I highly recommend this store for your next purchase.

(5 out of 5) Best .38 Special Low Recoil Ammo
by from Bethlehem, PA on

This is the absolute best standard pressure .38 Special ammo on the market. This ammo has very low recoil and is nickel cased with a premium bullet. The box is small and holds 25 rounds, compactly. Sportsman Outdoor Super Store is one of the few places that carry this round. They ship fast and there product notification email is amazing. I just received the email and ordered one box. This this THE ONLY ammo I put in my wife’s home defense Snubnose…anything more and there is too much recoil and muzzle flash. Good ammo Great Company. Don’t hesitate to buy a box and store it away for these uncertain times. A box of these and a .38 Snubnose will serve you well for years.

Alongside Western 38+ p, these rounds proved equal in power. I could not feel a difference in quality. This was through paper travers at an indoor range. I am very satisfied with the quality of this round!

I have not had a chance to try the product out yet, but I just wanted to brag on your customer service. Although understandably notices on the side say that deliveries are delayed, thats understandable at this time. But it still got here quicker than I thought it would! Will try to write a full product review after the first visit to the range.

I received a notice of a hard to find defense round. I ordered and received it in a timely manner complete with tracking info. No problems. Thanks for the great customer service during these difficult times.
