- Q & A
For more than 70 years the .38 Special was the standard issue for law enforcement agencies across the country. And although it was eventually replaced by the 9mm, and then the .40 S&W, it remains a commonly used caliber. Many officers carry .38 Specials as their backup gun or their off-duty daily carry and quite a few private citizens do as well. Today the .38 Special remains the most commonly used revolver round, and if you own a gun chambered in this classic round, odds are you use it for self-defense. If you want to be a proficient self-defense shooter, you need practice, and that means target practice with target rounds like these.
These .38 Special rounds weigh 130 grain, making them somewhat lightweight for the cartridge size. At this weight these rounds are able to fly down-range at higher speeds than their heavier counterparts but are still heavy enough to strike targets with substantial power. These are Full Metal Jacket, FMJ, rounds and do not expand on impact. Target rounds in general are prone to over-penetrating, which is why it’s important to have a solid backstop in place. Each of these rounds has a muzzle velocity of 790 feet per second and a muzzle energy of 173 foot-pounds. This ammunition is designed for target practice, self-defense training, and plinking.
There are 50 target rounds in this box of Estate ammunition. These boxes are just the right size for carrying in your range bag when you’re heading out for target practice or stacking on the shelf in your gun safe. All gun owners should have an ammunition stash, after all, you don’t want to get caught without any ammunition when you’re in the mood for some target practice. Not to mention there’s no such thing as too much ammo. Estate is a subsidiary of Federal, a manufacturer that’s been in business since 1922.
