    As a partner in a commercial ammunition manufacturing venture, I have been asked to make mention of it.

    This is an attempt to bring defensive ammo for the Snubbie 38 Special revolver into the 21st century. This ammo is NOT for off-brand, vintage or older airweight firearms.

    The load shown is the Golden Shot. With a 148 gr projectile, it has a 10 foot velocity of 883 fps out of the 1 7/8" bbl Smith & Wesson 640 pictured. A unique load, this is makes the petite 5-shot revolver a fight stopper.

    At this time, ammo is available in the Middle Tenn area. Hopefully, we will be able to expand a little. This venture is by two folks who have other enterprises, and wish to fill a vacuum in the shortage of quality defensive ammo available at this time.

    Other loads include the always hard to find FBI load, a swaged 158 gr SWCHP at +P velocities. It is accurate and hard hitting. This is suitable for +P rated alloy framed revolvers.

    This ammo is meticulously hand loaded on Dillon 650 and 1050 presses, by a person with decades of high volume loading experience (yours truly).

    Those look like they would be good for the Coons who come into my yard each winter. They have already started and have killed two neighbors pet kittens
