History of the 38 A.M.U. cartridge:

The 38 AMU or A.M.U. for Army Marksmanship Unit is a (semi-rimmed) cartridge vs. the .38 S&W Special (rimmed) cartridge and introduced for the 1964 Army National Match used in special 1911 pistols made by Colt  with Drake Slides.
To my knowledge Remington Arms Company, Western Cartridges Company and Federal Cartridge Company produced small amounts of this caliber, however it was never offer to the general public.
Now long obsolete.
