Remington was founded in 1816 by Eliphalet Remington, and in the 200 years they’ve been in business they’ve seen a lot of changes in the world of firearms and ammunition. But if there’s one thing they’ve always been involved in - aside from their dedication to quality – it’s the military. During World War I they produced firearms for a number of our allies as well as for the U.S., with their most famous contribution being the M1917 Enfield rifle. As World War II rolled around, the U.S. Army requested Remington build their ammunition stores, and so the company began the Lake City Arsenal, which stands to this day. Their involvement has been vast and unending, because Remington isn’t just an ammunition company, they’re an American institution.
At 130 grain these are fairly lightweight rounds for the .38 Special. They’re MC rounds, which behave much the same as FMJ, making them a great choice for target practice, tactical training, and plinking. Each round has a muzzle velocity of 790 feet per second and a muzzle energy of 173 foot-pounds. This is new-production, brass-cased ammunition with boxer primer, so you can feed your gun the entire box of ammunition, collect your spent brass, reload them, and get back to feeding your gun. These rounds are also designed to be non-corrosive so there’s less friction in the barrel of your gun.
There are 500 target rounds in this box, and if you think that will last forever, you couldn’t be more wrong. You and your .38 Special will go through this ammunition in record time, so you might want to consider getting at least two boxes. This ammunition is manufactured by Remington at their plant in Lonoke, Arkansas, and must meet their strict requirements in order to leave the facility. If you want to be a high-volume shooter, take care to use ammo that’s good for your gun, because firing a large number of less-than-good rounds through it is going to make parts wear out quickly and can even affect accuracy. This ammunition from Remington isn’t just good for your gun, it’s great.
