"Blazing fast, superior accuracy and 100% quality control" -Carry Trainer
"The Worlds Finest Ammo" -Mickey Schuch, CarryTrainer.com
"Perfect Performance!" -Andrew, AR15.com
"Super Vel is back where it belongs, in my holster!" -Chuck Sparks
"I am a 73 year old retired police officer. I served 41 years in law enforcement. Forty some years ago I started carrying Super Vel ammo in my duty firearm, and regretted the time I couldn’t get it, thanks to whom ever brought this great ammo back to the marketplace. I still carry and Super Vel is back where it belongs, in my holster!"
"The ammo has been completely reliable in my modified Glock’s, and I carry the 90 grain Super Vel load in my Glocks every day." -Mickey Fowler, 3 Time Bianchi Cup Champion
"I am shooting Supervel 9x19 90 grain hollow-points in my custom Fowler Industries Glock model 26 and model 19 concealed carry pistols. Using my chronograph, velocities for the subcompact G26 are 1,420 feet per second, 10 shot average. The compact G19 chronographs 1,440 average. Standard deviations for 10 shot strings are about 10 feet per second in both pistols. Accuracy is outstanding with the 90 grain Super Vel load.
The G26 and G19 regularly produced off-hand five shot groups at 25 yards from one to two inches. Every shot is right on call. I believe part of the reason for the superior practical accuracy of the Super Vel ammunition is due to the high velocity, light bullet combination. Because of the high velocity, bullet dwell time in the barrel is short. The bullet is out of the barrel before the shooter can spoil the aim. Recoil is minimal, making for fast and accurate follow up shots.
I checked to confirm what I was seeing by putting one of my Glock’s in a Ransom rest. When fired, the pistol rotated about 30 percent less with the 90 grain Super Vel load than with other comparable other self-defense loads. The ammo has been completely reliable in my modified Glock’s, and I carry the 90 grain Super Vel load in my Glocks every day."
"Built for those who worship at the alter of high velocity, Super Vel ammo offers scorching speeds, fine accuracy, great reliability and solid terminal performance." -Richard Mann, Shooting Illustrated
"From a terminal-performance standpoint, the 185-grain .45 ACP and 115-grain 9 mm loads met or even exceeded my better-than-average standard of more than 13 inches of penetration while still expanding to at least 0.58 inch. The 90-grain 9 mm load did not meet that threshold, but did create a massive wound cavity. However, the real appeal of this lightweight load is shootability. It should be a great load for subcompact 9 mm pistols rated for +P ammunition." Read Full Article by Click Here!
"I'm sold on Super Vel. That stuff is consistent and accurate." -Anonymous, Narcotics Officer
"I'm sold on Super Vel. That stuff is consistent and accurate. I have been shooting and scoring some of my best with it. I appreciate you turning me on to it. Plus in my role now in LE the 90gr +P helps me carry a lighter bullet (which means a lighter spare mag too) that performs better than some of the 147 offerings. It's the most accurate stuff on the market."
"My last .38 Super Vel was just fired 20 minutes ago! I retired in 97 after 20 years in law enforcement and the ammo was just as good as ever." -John Dickerson
"My last .38 Super Vel was just fired 20 minutes ago! I retired in 97 after 20 years in law enforcement and the ammo was just as good as ever. My vintage model 66 dispatched another armadillo tonight, their holes are dangerous to horses, so that and coyotes are my foes these days."
"Tried! Tested! Proven!" -Mike Stoker, Competitive USPSA Single Stack & Limited Shooter
"I only trust the best to protect my family. Super Vel has me covered!"
"Great to see the brand back with modern design & power." -Bill
"I can wait! I go back "to the day" when they ruled the world. Fired many. The solid copper caught my eye. Great to see the brand back with modern design & power."
"The current Super Vel includes about the hottest load out there" -BackWoodsShome.com
"The current Super Vel includes about the hottest load out there for snub-nose .38 Specials, the Super Snub, which sends a 90-grain hollow point out of a two-inch barrel at a hellacious velocity of more than 1300 feet per second. In addition to old school hollow points, Super Vel also has Barnes-type all-copper hollow points, which work well against barriers while still expanding reliably in flesh." Read entire article here.
