    I was rooting through an old trunk looking for some reloading stuff and found them. Don't know why I put them in that trunk but I remember buying them at the same time I bought my Gold Cup. About 30 years ago. They were very popular back then, I wonder what happened to H&H Corp.?

    I guess ammo is just as collectable as firearms are!

    Got a few boxes of Talons out at the farm myself. Still have flachettes for 12 ga and a bunch of other wierd crap. Come to think of it I have some .30 Browning linen belts that are still loaded. I make it a habit to pick the stuff up when it is cheap or available.

    Super-Vel was the first manufacturer to come out with the low weight grain bullet/high velocity handgun cartridges.

    "Early in the '70s, along came a guy by the name of Lee Jurras with an upstart little ammo company named Super Vel. He began with a .38 Special loaded with a JHP bullet that reached some pretty zippy velocities.

    The secret to much of this was the use of significantly lighter bullets than we'd ever seen. The .38 Special, for example, used a 110 gr. bullet. Today that's common, but then it was virtually revolutionary."*

    As they proved very popular, soon the major ammo manufactuers jumped on the band wagon.

    Southernshooter, your bullet seems vaguely familiar

    SuperVel was the alpha round in the high velocity/light bullet wars. I remember it well. My first 9mm was loaded with SuperVel's 90 gr. JHP. They didn't feed reliably in the unramped pistols of the day.

    SuperVel got lots of favorable press in the gun mags in the 1970's. The company disappeared when Rem, W-W, CCI and Fed. started duplicating their loads.

    In many departments,(back then) anything other than the .38 spl. service revolver was discouraged or even banned. So finding a cartridge that would do better was a blessing, thus the plus P and the like were very popular.
