A caution for any of you who will be shooting at the IDPA Nationals next week. If you are hesistant about flying with ammo and plan to buy your ammo there, be aware that the S&B .38 Special definitely does not make 125 Power Factor. The 9mm S&B is spotty about making 125 PF. S&B performance in other calibers is unknown to me because we have not been chronoing them here in Atlanta.

I have an email from IDPA HQ which states that you must make PF even if you are using factory ammo. So planning to buy ammo at the match is probably not a good idea. It would be a shame to get DQ'd for making an honest mistake.

The 9mm was chronoed in a Glock 17. The .38 in a 4 inch Model 15. I wouldn't count on an extra inch to make enough of a difference to risk getting DQ'd over.
