The .38 Super has been a traditional alternative to the .45 ACP in the 1911. Â At one time, the .38 Super was considered to be more powerful than the 9mm, but in recent times, +P and +P+ 9mm loads have crept up and are running at similar velocities and power levels.
If someone would make a 124 grain hollow point running at about 1350 – 1400 fps, the .38 Super would deliver the same (or very similar) punch as the mythical 125 gr .357 Magnum. Â Eight rounds of that in this sweet Wilson Combat piece would be tough to beat.
