The .38 Special is the child of the .38 Long Colt cartridge. It was created in 1898 by Smith and Wesson in response to a request from the US Cavalry, and in the last century, it’s become a wildly popular caliber. There have been numerous firearms created for this cartridge, and as it became clear that many women prefer the .38 Special for its lesser recoil and compact frame, one manufacturer decided to get ahead of the others. Charter Arms’ Pink Lady .38 Special came on the market with a splash; at 12 ounces and sporting a soft pink finish, men began buying it for their wives and women began buying it for themselves. There really is a .38 Special for everyone, and whatever model you use, you need some target rounds.
These are FMJ rounds created for target practice, self-defense training, and plinking. They’re medium weight at 158, so they have more heft than smaller rounds but are still light enough to have nice speed. They fly from the muzzle of your .38 Special with a muzzle velocity of 960 feet per second and have a muzzle energy of 320 foot-pounds. Fiocchi makes this ammunition in new production, fresh brass, boxer-primed cases, so you can reload; it makes a good deal great. There are 50 rounds in this box of target rounds.
Fiocchi was founded in Lecco, Italy, in 1876 when Giulio Fiocchi took control of a small plant that had been producing only small caliber rounds. It was right about then that the firearms world was going through some major changes; breech loading was replacing muzzle loading. Fiocchi has always had a bit of an edge on the industry because they both design and manufacture their production equipment, and they are also known for their product diversification. In their lengthy history they’ve manufactured everything from pinfire to snaps to shotshell. They have a solid reputation for quality and commitment to their customers; when you buy ammunition from Fiocchi, you’re buying from an Italian legend.
