Automatic

Designed by John Browning for Colt in 1900, this is the original cartridge that became known in 1929 as the .38 Super, the difference being an increase in pressure to improve the performance in the weapons for which it was chambered.

This data can also be used for loading the 9mm Steyr, 9mm Largo and the 9mm Bergmann-Bayard.

The SAAMI Maximum Average Pressure for the .38 Auto is 23,000 C.U.P.
