- Q & A
Since its creation in 1898 by Smith and Wesson the .38 Special has had quite a history, not to mention a steady century-plus run of popularity. By the 1920s it was the standard issue for police departments across the country, a trend that stretched well into the 1990s. Seventy years is a long time for a chambering to remain in use in law enforcement, and it seems unlikely any other caliber will manage such a feat. The .38 Special remains popular for many officers when they’re off-duty and is also favored by many civilian gun owners.
If you own a .38 Special and use it for self-defense purposes, it’s vital you keep it loaded with the right ammunition. These particular rounds are manufactured by Federal. They weigh in at 147 grain, making them medium-weight for the cartridge size, meaning they’re heavy enough to pack a greater punch but light enough to travel at higher speeds. These are +P rounds, so they generate greater force and speed overall. Each round has a muzzle velocity of 950 feet per second and muzzle energy of 295 foot-pounds. This ammunition is designed for self-defense.
There are 1000 rounds in this case of ammunition; there are 20 boxes of 50 rounds each. These are JHP, Jacketed Hollow Point, rounds and begin to expand immediately upon impact. Because they’re jacketed expansion is controlled allowing for greater penetration and a more devastating wound cavity. With 1000 defense rounds you can get some serious training in which is a must if you use your gun for protection. This ammunition produces more recoil and muzzle rise than target rounds, so the only way to ensure accuracy is through training. Federal manufactures these rounds at their factory in Anoka, Minnesota. Order now and train like you may one day be forced to fight.
