The .38 Special has quite a history and a level of popularity that’s lasted for decades. In fact, the .38 Special spent decades as the caliber of choice for law enforcement agencies all over the country, a longevity no other round has yet to match. Today the round is still popular among many law enforcement officers but it’s also incredibly popular among gun owners in general. The .38 Special offers manageable recoil and ease of concealment, both important features for self-defense, which is the reason many shooters buy them. If you own a gun chambered in .38 Special and use it for self-defense, then you need the right ammunition.
These .38 Special rounds weigh in at 158 grain, making them fairly sizeable for the cartridge size. They’re Jacketed Hollow Point, or JHP rounds, and as such expand immediately upon impact. As they expand they also slow down, allowing for greater penetration and a devastating wound cavity. Their jackets allow the bullets to penetrate even deeper than standard HP rounds, making them even more effective. Each round has a muzzle velocity of 850 feet per second and muzzle energy of 253 foot-pounds. This ammunition is specifically designed for self-defense purposes.
When you place your order for this single box of ammunition you get 50 defense rounds. That’s just enough to keep your gun loaded and ready or self-defense with a few left over for practice shots. Of course, defense rounds deliver far greater recoil than standard target rounds, so if you want to be truly confident in your ability to make accurate shots, you’re going to need practice. With that in mind, consider ordering multiple boxes. Someday your life may depend on how much practice you did or did not get. Fiocchi manufactures ammunition at their longtime factory in Lecco, Italy. Order now and prepare to defend your loved ones.
