- Q & A
The .38 Special has quite a history extending back to 1898 when it was designed for a greater performance level than its predecessor, the .38 Long Colt. When this cartridge was new it was loaded with black powder, but as it became clear just how popular it could become it was changed over to being loaded with smokeless powder. There have been countless guns made in this caliber and it’s become the most popular revolver round on the market. Many gun owners use it for self-defense due to its accuracy and manageable recoil. Whether you use yours for self-defense or days at the range, you’re going to need some target rounds.
At 130 grain these are considered lightweight for the cartridge size, enabling them to move down-range at higher speeds. These are Full Metal Jacket (FMJ) rounds and so will not expand on impact, in fact they’re prone to over-penetration, making it even more important to have a good backstop in place during target practice. Each of these rounds leaves the barrel of your gun at a muzzle velocity of 890 feet per second and a muzzle energy of 229 foot-pounds. This ammunition is ideal for target practice, shooting drills, and plinking.
There are 50 target rounds in this box of ammunition, making it just the right size for stashing in your range bag or stacking in your safe for a rainy day (or whatever the weather might be when you decide you need more ammunition). This ammunition is made by Prvi Partizan, a company founded in 1927 by Jakob Posinger. Prvi Partizan manufactures ammunition at their longtime factory in Uzice, Serbia.
