Beginning to think so. Checked several places today, and none to be found. Made one final stop at Gebo's and they had MagTech in stock, so bought a couple boxes there.

Any one else having problems finding this?

Just for range work or carry stuff?

They were out of .38 SPC too?

It's been two years since it was easy to buy and longer since it was cheap. I tried to sell some here with no takers other than some $20 per 50 "offers". .38 Special is not as hard to find and not the same by any means.

No sir. Plenty of .38 SPL to be found. Just seemed odd the big box stores were out, but Gebo's had a healthy supply of .357mag.

Normally I wouldn't care, but I put a Coonan Officer's/Compact in layaway, and this one does not come with the recoil spring to change out/shoot .38 SPL.

Thank you fellas!
