Usually with all the warnings about Walthers, I usually shoot lightly loaded 9mm ammo through my 1959 P38. Usually my go to 9mm ammo is Magtech, and if that's not available, then I usually get brands like Blazer, Federal, Remington, and PMC.

As for brands like S&B or Fiocchi, I stay away from those brands for this particular gun. They seem to have higher velocities than the ammo brands listed above. Their listed velocities go over 1200 FPS. Is this stuff safer to shoot in a post war P38?

Those should work just fine. The post war P38 should be able to handle any standard pressure 115gr or 124gr ammunition. If they have a steel frame or is aluminum with the hex pin they will be even tougher.

I don't believe that any of the post war Walther pistols are so delicate that they need special ammunition.
