"Cheap, They are nothing to look at, I just shot a 100 at the range and had no problems."

"You can't beat the price on these 38's. They are pretty dirty but they are very accurate and shoot great. They are also the only .38 round I have found to not lock my Taurus 605's cylinders!! Great for the range."

"I put a whole box through my 1976 Colt Detective Special and had no problems whatsoever. They were purchased at a good price and performed flawlessly. They did come in Federal shells that were marked +P but I don't think they were actually +P rounds. Either way, I have no complaints."

"These rounds were smokey, but punched nice small groups. Accuracy was better than expected, and the rounds fired consistently and perfectly. Will buy more."

"This is good stuff. Semi wad cutters are good self defense rounds (FBI Loads). Great price. I have shot up 2 boxes at the range, and will be getting more soon."

"These are awesome for the money. Blasting through a whole box will dirty up your gun. The brass was much nicer than I expected. All were nickle plated.No malfunctions, each round was more accurate than I was."

"This is great ammo for the buck. Very accurate in both my Charter Arms Undercover & my 40 year old SW 2\" Model 10. In my book this makes a good defense round for a snubby. It is a little dirty, but I can live with it. I'll be buying a lot more. Super fast delivery."

"Great ammo. Nice and accurate, packs a PUNCH! A bit dirty but I clean my Guns after EVERY session so this is no real problem. Nice brass. Cant beat this stuff for the Money. Like I said it packs a PUNCH, feels like +P. I will by more."

"This stuff is great! Never a misfire of any other issue. It's dirty...not a pain to clean really, but expect mean clouds of smelly smoke. Shoots smooth in my Ruger Blackhawk, but has a MEAN kick in my snub-nosed S&W revolver. The fact that the bullet is flat makes it perfect for use in lever-action rifles that use .357/.38 Special. Don't hesitate!"

"Ordered four boxes and was surprised to see these are marked +P. Ammo performs flawlessly and is fun to shoot. With the price and performance of this ammo there is no reason to buy so-called \"name brand\" ammo."

"Pretty smoky and pretty dirty ammo. It's accurate and shoots well, though. No failures to fire, and decently-priced."

"This ammo is a lot like Walmart's \"Great Value\" house-brand products - nothing fancy, not perfect, but yes, a Great Value for the money. I agree it's somewhat smoky, and yes about 70 rounds of it left some residue in my cylinders (almost none in the barrel). However, it was also pretty damned accurate in my 2.5\" barrelled S&W 19, with no FTFs. Some will say these are only a step up from Miwall reloads ... and I've never had a bad thing to say about those either. Great practice ammo - just bought 2 more boxes."

"I use this ammo for training my family members on a Taurus .38 Special and a .357 large frame revolver. Yes, it's smokey and very dirty and leaves a bad taste in your mouth (literally) in poor ventilation ranges.. just buy some extra mouthwash..! Also, You'll need to spend a few extra minutes in your post-range cleaning efforts. Still worth the price though!"

"This stuff is so dirty I stopped firing it at the range. I bought 100 rounds each of .38, .357, .44 special, .44 mag. Several misfires each box, and the smoke draws disapproving looks from other shooting lanes - I don't blame them. It is nasty, brown smoke. Embarrassing. Nonreturnable, of course. I bought it because I use .308 from BVAC and like it. No more. I use the cheap Russian stuff, and it's much better than this. The only disappointment I've had from CTD. Too bad \"no bullets\" is not a choice!"
