- Q & A
In 1922 Charles Horn took over a failing factory, refounding it as the Federal Cartridge Company. Convinced he could make the company a true success he took on an extensive marketing campaign that included selling their products in gas stations, barber shops, and grocery stores. It worked. Before long Federal was being offered a government contract to build and operate what is now known as the Twin City Ordnance Plant, and such was their dedication that they ended up being awarded an Army-Navy “E” for excellence. Today Federal is a respected company in the firearms industry and their ammunition is known for its reliable performance and high quality.
These Federal rounds are made for your .38 Special. At 148 grain these are medium-weight rounds capable of traveling at higher speeds while retaining enough weight to pack a solid punch. Each round flies from the barrel of your gun at the muzzle velocity of 710 feet per second and a muzzle energy of 165 foot-pounds. These are lead wadcutter rounds, so they don’t expand on impact but simply hit the target, penetrate, and keep on going. Wadcutters are good for a clean edge on your targets, which makes scoring easier and more accurate. This ammunition is great for target practice and plinking.
There are 50 target rounds in this single box of ammunition from Federal. That gives you enough for a brief training session, so if you want to focus at length on your marksmanship skills, order more than one box. There are a variety of drills and exercises you can work on to improve your skills from basic shot placement and accuracy drills to shooting in a variety of positions to shooting with your weak hand. The options are endless so long as you have the ammunition necessary for target practice. Federal manufactures ammunition at their established factory in Anoka, Minnesota. If you want ammunition you can trust from a respected American company, you want Federal. Order now, and feed your .38 Special.
