- Q & A
The .38 Special was created by Smith & Wesson and entered production in 1898. It was originally designed as a more powerful option than the .38 Long Colt due in part to the U.S. Cavalry’s discovery that their .38 Long Colt-chambered weapons weren’t sufficient during the Philippine-American War. By the 1920s it had become the standard issue for law enforcement agencies across the country, a trend that continued into the 1990s. There is no other pistol cartridge that can claim 70 years of law enforcement service.
These particular .38 Special rounds are manufactured by Magtech. Each round is 125 grain which is lightweight for the cartridge. Being lighter weight does have benefits including the ability to travel at higher speeds and also producing a bit less felt recoil. Less felt recoil often makes accuracy easier, especially with follow-up shots. These are FMJ, Full Metal Jacket, rounds and do not expand on impact. Target rounds like these tend to over-penetrate targets, so always make sure you have a reliable backstop in place during target practice. This ammunition is meant for target practice and plinking.
When you order this box of ammunition from Magtech you get 50 target rounds. This box is a good size for stashing in your range bag or pack when you’re headed to the range or an outdoor spot for some target practice.

Each of these rounds produces a muzzle velocity of 800 feet per second and muzzle energy of 185 foot-pounds. Magtech manufactures ammunition at their factory in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
