When it comes to target practice, there’s no such thing as too much. There are endless drills and exercises designed for improving your marksmanship, but in order to do them, you also need a lot of ammunition. With enough ammo you can get the training you need, including practicing shooting prone, kneeling, and standing, shooting with your weak hand, and shooting supported and unsupported. Then there’s self-defense drills like the Mozambique, which involves two shots to center mass with a follow-up head shot. Whatever you’re training for, there’s a drill – or ten – for it, but first, you need ammunition.
These Federal rounds are made for your .38 Special. At 148 grain they’re on the lighter end of medium-weight, so they’re able to fly down-range at greater speeds and keep recoil manageable. These are lead wadcutter rounds, so they don’t expand on impact. As with all target rounds these wadcutters are prone to over-penetration, so make sure you have a solid backstop in place during shooting. Wadcutters give you a nice, clean edge on your paper targets for more accurate scoring. Each of these rounds has a muzzle velocity of 710 feet per second and muzzle energy of 165 foot-pounds. This ammunition is great for target practice, tactical training, and plinking.
When you order this case of ammunition from Federal you get a whopping 1000 rounds. That’s enough ammunition to keep you and your gun busy for some time. And because these are new-production, brass-cased, boxer-primed rounds, you can collect your spent casings, reload them, and get even more trigger time. That’s some fantastic value for your dollar. Federal has been manufacturing ammunition since 1922 and has a deserved reputation for quality and excellent performance. Production takes place at their factory in Anoka, Minnesota, according to exacting standards. If you’re serious about improving your marksmanship, order now.
