- Q & A
For .38 Special hollow point rounds with the power you need for self-defense, try this Hornady +P ammunition. +P rounds have extra pressure, which makes them stronger overall when compared to rounds of the same caliber. And while hollow points are what all experienced shooters use for concealed carry and self-defense, they are known for having issues with clogging. Penetrating layers of clothing, whether denim or leather, can create problems with a round’s expansion. Hornady fixed that with their Flex Tips, which are soft polymer inserts in the tip of every round. This technology created ammunition with incredibly reliable expansion, so you can count on these rounds to perform.
For three generations, Hornady has been manufacturing quality products for the shooting and hunting industry. More than sixty years ago, Joyce Hornady came up with the “ten rounds through one hole” slogan, a testament to his belief in the importance of both good ammunition and the value of skill. He served as a marksmanship instructor for the military during World War II, and his extensive experience with firearms served him well as he built what was to become one of the preeminent ammunition manufacturers in the United States. Since 1958, production has taken place in Grand Island, Nebraska, and today, your ammunition still comes from that same plant.
An important issue for many .38 Special aficionados is not wanting to sacrifice recoil. Hornady understands that, so they use propellants specifically designed to lower recoil. This ammunition is known for cycling well and has a clean burn so your gun stays cleaner, longer. In addition, silver nickel plating is used to reduce friction in your gun’s barrel and to increase the round’s visibility at night. And because the team at Hornady knows many self-defense scenarios play out after dark, they’ve taken care to design this ammunition for low muzzle flash, so you won’t sacrifice your night vision when you fire your gun. All in all, it’s a great defensive round with the added bonus of +P power.
This ammunition has a muzzle velocity of 1090 feet per second, a good speed for this caliber, helped in part by its light weight of 110 grain. It also has a muzzle energy of 290 foot-pounds, making it best up close and personal. This is a single box of 25 rounds. Order yours today to keep in your safe so you always have ammunition available for your concealed carry needs, or to try it out in a training environment, after which you’ll be won over and using it for your personal protection needs indefinitely.
Of course, if you’d rather have more rounds you can get this same cartridge in a bulk 250 round quantity from Hornady here. (This is a +P ammunition. Please make sure your firearm is approved for +P prior to ordering. “+P” means the cartridge is loaded to a higher pressure than standard ammunition. That increase in pressure can sometimes lead to more wear and tear on your firearm and barrel so manufacturers generally don’t suggest you fire repeatedly or use +P for range time frequently).
