In 1816, a young man by the name of Eliphalet Remington decided to design and build his very own flintlock rifle. After using his father’s forge to build it he wanted to test it out, and not just by firing a round or two, so he entered it in a competition. At the competition, he won second place – you can easily imagine he’d hoped for first – and the people who had seen him use the rifle all wanted one. As the orders flooded in, Eliphalet had a choice to make: he could either become a gunsmith or stop with his own personal gun. Fortunately for the gun world at large, he chose the former, and Remington was founded.
The .38 Special has its own history, having been made by Smith and Wesson in 1898 as an improvement over the .38 Long Colt, which had proven inadequate in combat. When the .38 Special was first made it was loaded with black powder, but it was instantly popular, leading manufacturers to change to smokeless powder less than a year after introducing the round to the general public. Over the years it was widely used in law enforcement and issued to numerous service members in several branches of our military, and in the 1950’s manufacturers decided to try to improve its stopping power, which is when the +P was designed. Some law enforcement agencies wanted even more, and considerable fine-tuning led to the +P+. The .38 Special may have undergone changes over the years, but its basic design remains the same.
These .38 Special rounds are a medium-weight 158 grain. They’re LRN rounds and will not expand on impact – although the lead noses will deform a bit – and are designed for target practice, shooting drills, and plinking. Each round has a muzzle velocity of 755 feet per second and muzzle energy of 200 foot-pounds. Remington has six plants across the South and east coast, each of which has a specific job, and the job of manufacturing ammunition is carried out at their plant in Lonoke, Arkansas. These rounds are produced in virgin brass cases with boxer primer and can be reloaded. There are 500 target rounds in this box, so when you place your order you’re going to end up with enough ammunition to keep you and your gun busy for awhile.
