Technical Assistance / Eldorado Starfire 38Spl +P wanted
« Last post by Lawrence Pilcher on Yesterday at 09:33:08 AM »
Good morning to all.

I have a distance determination case where Eldorado Starfire 38Spl. +P ammo was used.  Our lab has every caliber of this ammunition line in stock except the 38Spl. +P.

I am looking for the nickel cased, nickel primed version.  The projectile is a normal copper jacket and not the earlier black ones.

Can any lab spare about 10 rounds?  I'll reciprocate with anything that we have in stock that we can spare.
