38 Special ammo has quite a history. It was originally designed as an improvement over the smaller cartridges of the bootleg era after gangsters discovered they could simply hide behind car doors or wear their own heavy vests to deter bullets. Because of that it quickly gained popularity with law enforcement, and ended up being the standard issue from 1920 on into the 1990s. That’s over seventy years of law enforcement use, and even when it was replaced by the 9mm it continued to be used by many officers as their backup gun or for personal, off-duty use. Today it’s the most popular revolver round on the market.
This Blazer ammo is made for your .38 Special and weigh in at 158 grain. This makes them somewhat heavy for the cartridge, capable of a solid hit on targets yet light enough to travel at good speeds. These are Full Metal Jacket, or FMJ, rounds and do not expand on impact but simply strike the target, penetrate, and keep traveling. Always make sure you have a reliable backstop in place during target practice. Each of these rounds has a muzzle velocity of X feet per second and muzzle energy of X foot-pounds. This ammunition is meant for target practice, self-defense training, and plinking.
There are 50 target rounds in this single box of Blazer ammunition. These boxes are a great size for carrying in your range bag or stacking in your gun safe. They’re fresh brass cases with boxer primer, so you can collect your spent brass, reload it, and get back to shooting. And they’re non-corrosive, which means less wear inside the barrel of your gun. Blazer is a subsidiary of CCI and manufactures ammunition at the CCI factory in Lewiston, Idaho, according to high standards. Your .38 Special has a rich history, and you are continuing its story each time you pull the trigger. Order now to spend quality time with your favorite handgun.
