- Q & A
For more than 70 years .38 Special ammunition served as standard issue for law enforcement agencies across the country. Even after it was replaced by other calibers, many officers continued and continue to use it, both as a backup gun (BUG) and a personal off-duty carry weapon. In addition, it saw use in the military for a number of years, arming both men on the ground and airmen who needed to be armed in case of a crash landing. Today the .38 Special is the most popular revolver round on the market. It’s purchased by many first-time gun owners both as a weapon to learn with and also for protection, and it’s used by seasoned shooters for concealed carry. If you own one, chances are good you need some trigger time.
These particular .38 Special rounds are made by Fiocchi, an Italian company that’s been around since 1876. They weigh in at 158 grain, making them medium-weight for the cartridge size and capable of moving down-range at good speeds. They’re Lead Round Nose, LRN, rounds and so do not expand on impact, although the lead may deform on impact, which should not be mistaken for expansion. Each round leaves the barrel of your pistol at a muzzle velocity of 910 feet per second and muzzle energy of 295 foot-pounds. This ammunition is designed for target practice, self-defense training, and plinking.
When you order this box of ammunition from Fiocchi you get 20 boxes of 50 rounds each for a grand total of 1000 rounds. Just think what you can do with 1000 target rounds; there are numerous drills and practically endless skills to master. You can practice shooting from various positions including prone, kneeling, and standing, or work on using your weak hand. Shooting supported and unsupported are also good skills to have as well. Fiocchi’s headquarters are located in Lecco, Italy, but they also have a factory in Ozark, Missouri, for sales in the United States. If demand outdoes supply in Missouri, Fiocchi simply flies in more ammunition from Italy. If you want to be a better shot – and you know you do – order this case of target rounds, and get to your local range. You’ll be glad you did.
