History of Proof Cartridges:
Proofs are used to verify or “proof” the mechanical strength of a firearm before it leaves the factory, not for use in your firearms!
The bright dark reddish wash or dye on the base (head stamp) and projectile with nickel case is the U.S. industry standard of identifying these types of cartridges.
Proofs are not normally available to the public
History of the .38 Auto Cartridge:
The 38 auto also called 38 ACP or 38 automatic was designed by John Browning and introduced by Colt in 1900 for the 1900 Colt 38 auto pistol.
The 38 ACP was replaced in 1929 by the 38 “Super Auto” which is the “same cartridge case” but with a higher energy level, with newer and different gun powders.
WARNING: Do NOT use 38 SUPER AUTO or Winchester 9x23mm in a 38 AUTO pistol, as they are too high power for the 38 AUTO pistol. Also you CANNOT use 38 AUTO ammunition in a 38 Super pistol as it will not cycle the action.
