The Philippine-American War took place between 1899 and 1902 and was a precursor of sorts for the Moro Rebellion, which took place between 1899 and 1913. During the Moro Rebellion, the U.S. Cavalry discovered their .38 Long Colts utterly failed to halt the adrenaline-fueled charges of the Moro warriors. The warriors were armed with long knives and spears, and yet they were a formidable enemy. After suffering losses during those conflicts, the Cavalry wanted better firepower, and the .38 Special was created by Smith and Wesson. The .38 Special immediately gained a following for its accuracy and manageable recoil, and spent 70 years as the standard issue for police departments across the country.
At 130 grain these are at the low end of the medium weight range for the .38 Special. They’re light enough to reach fairly high speeds and also light enough that they won’t increase your recoil, allowing you to spend more time at the range without tiring out your hands. These are MC rounds, which are Remington’s FMJ, and don’t expand on impact. They’re great for target practice, shooting drills, and plinking. Each round zips down-range with a muzzle velocity of 790 feet per second and hits with a muzzle energy of 173 foot-pounds.
There are 50 target rounds in this box of ammunition. Remington produces these rounds in fresh brass cases with boxer primer, so you can reload your spent brass and get right back to the range. Remington was founded in 1816 and has spent almost 200 years fine-tuning their manufacturing process; these .38 Special rounds are a fine example of their centuries-long dedication to quality and performance. They have six plants, each of which has a specific job, and ammunition is made at their Lonoke, Arkansas, plant. If you’re loading your gun with target rounds, why not make them quality ones?
