The .38 Special has been around since 1898, and in that century-plus its seen quite a bit of use. Perhaps its most noteworthy use was the seventy years it spent as the standard issue for law enforcement officers all over the country, although it was also the service weapon for soldiers in World War I. It’s also seen extensive use as a self-defense weapon, which is what it’s still used for by many shooters today. In fact, there are quite a few law enforcement officers who is it as their backup gun (BUG) on and off duty. If you own a .38 Special, chances are good you use it for personal protection purposes, whether as your daily carry or your BUG; that means you need some defense rounds.
These are 125 grain rounds, so they’re relatively lightweight. They’re Semi-Jacketed Hollow Point rounds and begin to expand the instant they impact their target. SJHPs have more controlled expansion than standard HPs, and because of that they penetrate more fully, creating larger, more devastating wound tracks. That’s exactly what you want from a defense round, because it’s all about stopping power. Each of these rounds leaves the barrel of your gun at the muzzle velocity of 945 feet per second and impacts with a muzzle energy of 248 foot-pounds. These are new-production brass cases with boxer primer, so they can be reloaded, and they’re specifically meant for self-defense use.
When you place your order for this single box of ammunition you get 600 defense rounds. They’re made by Remington, a company with a rich history and practically legendary status in the world of firearms and ammunition. Remington was founded in 1816 by Eliphalet Remington when he won second place in a competition using the flintlock rifle he built using his father’s forge. Spectators started asking for their own guns, and fortunately for us, Eliphalet decided to go into business as a gunsmith. 200 years later Remington is widely known for their dedication to quality and performance; generations of shooters have counted on them for both guns and ammunition. Load your .38 Special with good quality, American-made defense rounds; buy Remington.
