The .38 Special is a rimmed, centerfire cartridge that first came out in 1898. It’s quite possibly the most popular revolver round in the world, but there are also a few semi-auto’s and carbines chambered in it. For a period of 70 years, between 1920 and 1990, it was the standard issue weapon for the majority of police departments in the U.S., and there are many law enforcement officers who continue to favor the .38 as a backup or off-duty gun. Performance-wise it’s a low-pressure cartridge with a standard load of 17,000 psi, while +P loads are usually at about 20,000 psi; it got its start as a black powder load, which affects its pressure capacities to this day. The .38 Special is a favorite for many firearms aficionados, and if you have one, you need some ammo.
Whether you use your gun for concealed carry or for trips to the range, you need to feed it.

At 125 grain this ammunition is at the low end of medium-weight for the .38 Special. It’s fairly light and capable of attaining nice speed but also just heavy enough to hit with a bit more strength. These are FMJ rounds for target practice, tactical training, and plinking. Armscor produces them in virgin brass cases using boxer primer, and that means you can burn through the entire box, collect your spent brass, reload, and get back to the range. These rounds have a muzzle velocity of 1025 feet per second and muzzle energy of 299 foot-pounds. There are 1000 target rounds in this case. Order a box to make sure you have plenty of ammunition next time you go shooting, because the last thing you want is to be caught with an empty chamber.
