The last time JD was at my house he told me the story about him and Lee setting up SuperVel. Very interesting. He and Lee gave permission to Cameron to use the SuperVel name in his new business.
We all need to be very thankful to Lee, Larry Kelly, and JD for what they've do to the world of handgun hunting. Two of three are gone. I cherish every minute I spend with JD.

Yes a great innovator and pioneer to handgun ammo. Very sad. I did get a smile remembering shooting the .357 super vel loads in a snub nose. That was an experience.
