- Q & A
The .38 Special has a rich history and a vast following, and for good reason. It was the standard-issue caliber for law enforcement nationwide for more than 70 years and remains favored by many law enforcement officers as a backup gun or as their daily carry off duty. It’s also the best-selling revolver caliber on the market, and has been for decades – odds are it will continue to be for some time yet. If you own a gun chambered in .38 Special odds are good you use it for self-defense, and that means keeping it loaded with the right defense rounds.
Hornady manufactures this ammunition for the .38 Special. Each round weighs in at 158 grain, putting it firmly in the middle-weight category for the cartridge size. It’s a good weight because it’s light enough to move down-range at higher speeds than its heavier counterparts but heavy enough to impact targets with compelling force. These are JHP, Jacketed Hollow Point, rounds and begin to expand immediately upon impact. As they expand they penetrate deeply, creating a devastating wound cavity. Each round has a muzzle velocity of 800 feet per second and muzzle energy of 225 foot-pounds. This ammunition is specifically designed for self-defense use.
When you order this single box of ammunition from Hornady you get 25 defense rounds. That’s just enough to keep your gun and speedloader or spare magazine loaded and ready for the worst-case scenario. If you want to train with these rounds, which is strongly suggested, order more than one box. Defense rounds produce more felt recoil than target rounds, which makes placement and accuracy harder to obtain. Hornady manufactures ammunition at their established factory in Grand Island, Nebraska, according to strict standards of excellence. Order now and be well-prepared for whatever may come.
