My carry ammo in the Centennial is nothing special, just ordinary, standard pressure 158 grain LSWCs—the same as I carried in the SO.
I stuck with them in the snubbie because I can shoot follow ups more accurately than with the legendary FBI load (which I haven’t been able to find in stock around here in years, anyway!)
I am considering going with full power 150 grain LWCs after reading some reviews, however since ammo is unobtainable right now, I’m sticking with LSWCs.
.38 Spl. 158gr LSWC used to be pretty common, but no more, I haven’t seen any Winchesters of Federals in years although I have stocked up on what I could find (this long before the current shortage)
I only carry factory loads.
I burned through almost all of my Remingtons and after a defective round during my CCW test, of all places, I’m swearing off Remington,
I can’t trust them.
So tomorrow is a range day. I’m going to finish off the Remingtons and try sampling of Magtech 158 gr LSWCs. If those don’t fill my needs I have 158 gr LSWC Privi Partizans to test.
What strikes me as odd is that the only .38spl 158gr LSWC ammo I could find (and this before the shortage)
is manufactured overseas in places like Brazil and Croatia.
Not that I have anything against Croatia and Brazil, but I have very little experience with foreign ammo manufacturers other than PMC in .45 ACP, which I found to be excellent.
It wouldn’t take much to best Remington in my book right now (I’m very grateful for the Magtech and Privi I have) however I was wondering what I should expect tomorrow at the range? Any good reviews or disappointments I should be aware of?
How have Magtech and Privi ammo treated you?
