In a life-or-death situation, every second counts, as does every feature of the ammunition you keep your carry weapon loaded with. One feature that improves power overall is packing cartridges to higher pressures. Rounds loaded this way are known as +P, or overpressure, rounds, and they certainly pack a larger whallop. They shouldn’t be confused with proof rounds, which are designed to test the limits of different guns, or Magnum loads. If you want to get every possible factor in your favor, load your .38 Special with +P rounds.
These particular rounds are made by Remington. Remington was founded in 1816 by Eliphalet Remington, who built his own flintlock rifle and immediately went out and won second place with it in a competition. Onlookers were duly impressed and began placing orders, and Eliphalet became a gunsmith practically overnight. Today Remington has six factories in various locations, and each location has a specific job. Ammunition is manufactured at their Lonoke, Arkansas, plant and undergoes rigorous testing and strict quality control measures.
At 125 grain these are lightweight rounds for the .38 Special. Lighter means faster, and speed is absolutely a good thing in a self-defense scenario. They’re SJHP – Semi-Jacketed Hollow Points – and deliver controlled expansion on impact, penetrating more deeply than standard HPs and creating catastrophic wound tracks. Each round moves with a muzzle velocity of 945 feet per second and strikes your target at a muzzle energy of 248 foot-pounds. These +P rounds are made specifically for self-defense. You get 500 rounds in this box, so you can get some realistic training in, which is very important for maintaining accuracy. If you want to increase your chances in case of the worst-case scenario, get your order in without delay.
