Federal 38 special ammo – some of the most trusted rounds available to U.S. civilian shooters.
In 1920 a man by the name of Charles Horn visited a failing factory. He decided to see what he could do with it himself, and refounded it as the Federal Cartridge Company. The first thing he did was start new marketing methods, and before long Federal’s ammunition was being sold in grocery stores, barber shops, and gas stations. Federal grew steadily and soon won a government contract to build and operate the Twin City Ordnance Plant, something they did so well they were awarded an Army/Navy “E” for excellence. Today that same dedication and drive has made Federal one of the most respected American ammunition manufacturers, and countless gun owners rely on them to keep their guns fed.
These Federal rounds are made for your .38 Special. At 147 grain they’re on the heavier side for this cartridge, meaning they’ll strike targets with greater force. These are +P rounds and that means they produce greater speed and more force than standard defense rounds. They’re JHP, Jacketed Hollow Point, rounds and begin to expand at the moment of impact. Their jackets control expansion, slowing it to allow for greater penetration and the creation of a deeper, more devastating wound cavity. This ammunition is meant for self-defense use.
There are 50 defense rounds in this single box of ammunition from Federal. That’s just enough to keep your gun and speedloaders or spare magazines loaded and ready for personal protection needs. If you intend to train with your chosen defense rounds, which is highly recommended, order more than one box. These rounds are produced in fresh brass cases with boxer primer and can be reloaded. Each round produces a muzzle velocity of 950 feet per second and muzzle energy of 295 foot-pounds. Federal manufactures ammunition at their longtime factory in Anoka, Minnesota, according to exacting standards. Order now, and be truly prepared.
