    I saw in the gun data book a 110 grain bullet Norma +P load that generates almost 600 ftlb muzzle energy Now that is a VERY HOT load. But I have never seen any such loads available in any store. Does anyone know where these can be found?

    In my reloading room...:D

    What is printed from a reloading manuel is not neccessarily going to be produce by a MFG.

    Reloading manuels are for Reloaders.

    These days you are lucky if you find any ammo in the stores. Fast an light never impressed me with the 38 Spl as I'd rather have the penetration.

    No, this was from a data book not a reloading manual. Apparently these were factory loads( by Norma)?Maybe Norma is out of business??
