The .38 Special came about in 1898 as an improvement over the .38 Long Colt. With its creation, Smith and Wesson ushered in a new, more powerful cartridge and an era of popularity that has lasted more than a century later. From the 1920’s to the 1990’s, the cartridge was the golden standard for police departments nationwide, and it was also commonly carried by soldiers in World War I. It has continued to gain and maintain its fan base both as a result of its reputation for accuracy and because it has what is considered manageable recoil. Countless shooters carry the .38 Special for personal protection, but no matter what you use yours for, you need practice.
We’ve all heard that practice makes perfect, and when it comes to personal protection, practice is a must. You can put in time at your local range to put some holes in paper or hit your favorite outdoors spot to knock over a few cans; however you choose to hone your skills, get to it. These are 158 grain rounds, making them the middle-weights of the .38 Special world and a nice, solid size for personal protection. As SJHP rounds they’re meant for self-defense; they mushroom on impact and have a tough jacket that prevents lead fouling in your gun’s barrel. They have a muzzle velocity of 900 feet per second, and they work best in closer quarters.
This ammunition is manufactured by Aguila, a company under the umbrella of the massive TECNOS plant in Mexico. TECNOS was originally established in part by Remington, and many of their employees were trained by Remington as well. They have a reputation for producing quality ammunition at competitive prices, and shooters who have used this ammunition praise its reliable feeding and ejecting. There are 1,000 rounds of ammunition in this box, which gives you enough to keep your personal carry weapon loaded for self-defense and also get some practice in. Defense rounds don’t behave the same as target rounds, so practice is a necessity. Place your order now so you’ll be ready for whatever may come.
