Opinions on Winchester 38 Spec Super Match ammo

Post by rodnak on 2/23/2014, 9:34 pm

Granted, everyone reloads. I'm lucky that I have a good friend that reloads for me. BUT, to have some back up ammo that I can buy and just stash, has anyone ever tried this?

I Ransom tested it a long time ago at about 2" 50yd groups from my S&W 14.  I was impressed, but I do not think it is as good as the old Remington.  Remington was Xring accurate from my Colt 38 OMM

I've shot a lot of the old Winchester factory match in that configuration. It was good then and I would suspect that it is still good. That being said, you should try some Zero like this: http://www.rozedist.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=RZD&Product_Code=R607-B&Category_Code=ZBA-38SP

Thanks Jack & Mike. I'll see what pricing I can get on the Winchester and will compare that with the Zero.

Zero ammo can be purchased reloaded or with brass exchange for much less than the price of new ammo.

We had a terrible experience of Winchester 148gr super match ammo during the WA1500 world championship in Australia, one out of 4 was tumbling on 25y not even hitting the 7 score ring.

Only luck and good australian shooting friends made it that we found enough handloads to get trough the
nations team matches and the 1500 with revolvers.

So No more Facotry Winchester super match ammo In our guns when we travle around the world.

The biggest problem is that we have always been using the Winchestrs Super match when we cant bring handloads with us when we travle to PPC matches but now they failed HUGE. 

Our guns holds 1,5" on 50y with good quality match ammo.
