The .38 Special has quite a history. It was first designed in 1898 by none other than Smith and Wesson as a more powerful option than the existing .38 Long Colt. It quickly became popular among law enforcement and was also used by soldiers during World War I. The .38 Special is also the one cartridge that can lay claim to having spent 70 years as the standard issue weapon for law enforcement agencies across the country. Today it’s the best-selling revolver cartridge on the market.
These particular .38 Special rounds are manufactured by Fiocchi. At 158 grain these are considered medium-weight for the cartridge size which gives the shooter the best of both worlds. These rounds are light enough to travel towards targets at higher speeds than their heavier counterparts but still heavy enough to impact targets solidly. These are FMJ, Full Metal Jacket, rounds and do not expand on impact. Target rounds are prone to over-penetration which is one reason you must have a reliable backstop in place during range time. This ammunition is great for target practice, self-defense training, and plinking.
When you order this case of ammunition you get 1000 target rounds. That’s a seriously big box of ammo and will definitely keep you and your gun busy for some time. The possibilities are practically endless when it comes to the drills and skills you can work on and master with 1000 rounds. This ammo is produced with virgin brass cases with boxer primer so you should absolutely police your spent casings, reload them, and get even more range time. Each round produces a muzzle velocity of 960 feet per second and muzzle energy of 320 foot-pounds. Fiocchi’s headquarters are in Lecco, Italy but they have a factory in Ozark, Missouri for United States production. Order now to hone your marksmanship with your .38 Special.
