While he wasn’t specifically mentioning 38 special ammo, Joyce Hornady’s famous catch phrase, ”Ten bullets through one hole” neatly sums up the goal when it came to the necessity of good-quality ammunition and serious target practice. When he started Hornady in 1949 World War II was coming to an end and the military was flooding the market with surplus ammunition, ammunition that Joyce Hornady found to be disappointingly poor quality. He watched as experienced hunters and skilled marksmen suffered due to lack of quality, and in his mind there was only one solution: manufacture his own, high-quality ammunition. And so he did.
Today Hornady is renowned for their superior ammunition. These particular Hornady rounds are for your .38 Special. At 125 grain these are considered medium-weight rounds for the cartridge size, light enough to reach high speeds but heavy enough to pack a heavier punch than their truly lightweight counterparts. These are Hornady’s XTP – eXtreme Terminal Performance – rounds and deliver maximum weight retention, fantastic energy transfer, and immediate expansion on impact. As they mushroom they create a deep, catastrophic wound track, which is just what you need from a self-defense round.
There are 250 defense rounds in this single box of Hornady ammunition. That’s plenty of ammunition to keep your self-defense gun loaded and ready for personal protection purposes with enough left over to get some dedicated trigger time in. Each round has a muzzle velocity of 900 feet per second and a muzzle energy of 225 foot-pounds. These are new production, non-corrosive, brass cased, boxer primed rounds, so you can burn through the entire box, collect your spent casings, reload them, and get even more range time. Hornady manufactures ammunition at their longtime factory in Grand Island, Nebraska, according to exacting standards. If you want to keep your self-defense gun loaded with superior defense rounds, you want Hornady. Order now, don’t wait until it’s too late.
