- Q & A
The .38 Special has been around since 1898. At that time black powder was being used, but it didn’t take long for the cartridge to become popular, spurring manufacturers to switch to smokeless powder. There are a few things about the .38 Special many shooters don’t realize, for example: even though it’s called a .38, the bullet’s caliber is actually .357 inches; .38 is a reference to the diameter of the loaded case itself. Also, the .38 Special is one of the lowest pressure cartridges being made today with a 17,000 psi, although overpressure rounds are typically loaded to about 20,000 psi. After more than 100 years on the market the .38 Special remains popular, and if you have one odds are you’re a high-volume shooter – so you need this ammo.
At 158 grain these are medium-weight rounds capable of reaching nice speeds while deliver a more solid punch than lighter versions. This is Full Metal Jacket ammunition and as such does not expand on impact. It’s specifically made for target practice, shooting drills, and those days you just want to drill holes in some pop cans. Each round zips down-range at a muzzle velocity of 889 feet per second and tears through your target with a muzzle energy of 277 foot-pounds. This is fully reloadable, new-production, brass-cased ammunition with boxer primer, and it’s non-corrosive, so there’s less friction in your gun’s barrel.
