- Q & A
The .38 Special has enjoyed a long, interesting history. It was first designed because more powerful rounds were used at the time; bootleggers and mafia members of the era were simply hiding behind car doors and heavy vests for protection against shots fired, so a stronger round was definitely needed. Not long after its creation it became the standard issue round for law enforcement agencies all across the country, enjoying that status from 1920 well into the 1990s. After 70 years as the top choice for officers it’s still used by many as a backup weapon or a personal carry choice. If you own a .38 Special, odds are you use it for self-defense, which means you’re going to need some target practice.
These .38 Special rounds weigh in at 158 grain, making them moderately heavy for the cartridge size. Being heavier allows them to pack a more solid punch on impact. These are Lead Round Nose, LRN, rounds and do not expand on impact. The lead may deform somewhat on impact but should not be confused with expansion. Each of these rounds has a muzzle velocity of 910 feet per second and a muzzle energy of 295 foot-pounds. These rounds are meant for target practice, self-defense training, and plinking.
There are 50 target rounds in this single box of ammunition from Fiocchi. That’s just enough for a snack for your gun and a brief outing to your local gun range, so if you want more extensive trigger time, order more than one box. These are brand new production, brass-cased rounds with boxer primer and can be reloaded. Fiocchi has been manufacturing ammunition since 1876, and with almost 150 years of experience behind them you can be sure they have the process down to an exact science. Their headquarters are located in Lecco, Italy, but they also have a factory in Ozark, Missouri, for distribution in the United States.
