- Q & A
In 1825 a German businessman by the name of Louis Sellier started an ammunition company. His first project was manufacturing percussion caps for the local infantry by request of Francis I, who was, at the time, the emperor of Austria. Before long he was joined by a business partner, his fellow countryman Jean Louis Nicolaus Bellot, whose expertise made a significant difference in getting the business off the ground. By 1830 Sellier and Bellot had produced more than 60 million percussion caps and the rest is, as they say, ammunition history. Today the company is well-known for their quality ammunition and relied upon by countless shooters worldwide.
These particular Sellier and Bellot rounds are meant for your .38 Special. At 158 grain these are moderately heavy for the cartridge size; heavy enough to strike targets with significant force yet light enough to zip down-range at impressive speeds. These are Lead Flat Nose, LFN, rounds, and as such will not expand on impact. In fact, target rounds such as these are prone to over-penetration, making it all the more important to have a solid backstop in place. Each round has a muzzle velocity of 800 feet per second and a muzzle energy of 225 foot-pounds. This ammunition is designed for target practice, self-defense training, and plinking.
There are 50 target rounds in this single box of ammunition from Sellier and Bellot. These boxes are a great size for stashing in your range bag when you’re heading out for target practice or stacking on the shelf in your gun safe for a rainy day (or whatever the weather may be when you decide to go shooting). Since they’re virgin brass cases with boxer primer, you can collect your spent brass, reload it, and get right back to the range, giving you even more value from your purchase. Sellier and Bellot manufactures ammunition at their longtime factory in Vlasim, Czech Republic. Order now and hit the range with your .38 Special.
