The .38 Special was designed as a more powerful option than the existing .38 Long Colt. It was first made as a black powder round but soon changed to smokeless. Over the years guns chambered in .38 Special have seen wide use including time carried by our nation’s services members. They also spent 70 years as the standard issue for law enforcement agencies around the country. Today the .38 Special is the most popular revolver cartridge on the market.
These particular .38 Special rounds are manufactured by Federal, a company that was founded in 1920. Each round weighs in at 158 grain which makes these medium-weight for the cartridge size. That means you have the best of both worlds with these rounds: they’re light enough to travel at higher speeds than their heavier counterparts but still heavy enough to strike targets solidly. These are LSWC, Lead Semi-WadCutter, rounds and do not expand on impact. They’re designed to produce neater, cleaner holes in paper targets for easier, more accurate scoring. This ammunition is great for target practice and plinking.
When you order this single box of ammunition from Federal you get 50 target rounds. This box is a fantastic size for stashing in your range bag or pack when you’re headed out for some target practice. It’s also great for stacking on the shelf of your gun safe for a rainy day (or whatever the weather ends up being when you burn through it…we won’t judge). Each round produces a muzzle velocity of 760 feet per second. Federal manufactures ammunition at their longtime factory in Anoka, Minnesota according to high standards for quality and performance.
