In 1898, the .38 Special was created as a more powerful version of the .38 Long Colt. During the Philippine-American War, which was officially a 3 year, 1 month, and 2 days-long conflict between Filipino revolutionaries and the U.S., the .38 Long Colt proved to be woefully inadequate. At first the .38 Special was loaded with black powder, as was typical of the era, but it became so immediately popular they began loading it with smokeless powder within the first year of its production. Over the first few decades, changes were made to improve its velocity and energy, mostly at the request of various law enforcement agencies and branches of the military. Today, it is still one of the lowest-pressure cartridges being made at 17,000 psi and is immensely popular for its low recoil and typically easy concealment.
This particular ammunition is made by Military Ballistic Industries, known simply as M.B.I. All of M.B.I.’s ammunition is made right here in the United States to strict standards. They manufacture precision reloads: the once-fired brass cases are carefully selected with an eye for quality and all other components are new. Hodgedon makes the propellants, CCI usually provides the primers, and Hornady or Lake City, a military plant, supplies the bullets. M.B.I. has a long-established reputation for excellence, and when you fire their remanufactured rounds, you’ll see why.
These are FMJ rounds, so they’re specifically manufactured for target practice and tactical training. And, of course, if you want to spend some fun plinking time, they’re great for that, too. Because M.B.I. is so careful when choosing their brass cases, you can reload them, so this affordably-priced ammunition is a truly amazing deal. These rounds have a muzzle velocity of 950 feet per second and a muzzle energy of 251 foot-pounds. There are 100 target rounds in a sealed plastic bag.
