More than a century ago Louis Sellier founded his own ammunition company, getting things rolling by making percussion caps for the local infantry. Although he got the business off to a good start it wasn’t until he was joined by fellow countryman Jean Maria Nicolaus Bellot that it truly began to flourish, and Sellier and Bellot was born. Today the company is well known for producing well-made ammunition at reasonable prices, and shooters who have used this ammunition praise its consistent cycling and reliable performance.
These Sellier and Bellot rounds are made for your .38 Special. At 158 grain these are medium-weight rounds, light enough to travel at higher speeds while heavy enough to hit hard. These are Soft Point, or SP, rounds and begin to expand immediately upon impact. SPs expand more slowly than standard HPs, which allows them to penetrate more deeply and create a larger, more traumatizing wound cavity. SPs can be used in areas where HPs aren’t allowed. Each of these rounds delivers a muzzle velocity of 899 feet per second and a muzzle energy of 277 foot-pounds. This ammunition is designed for self-defense purposes.
There are 50 rounds in this single box of ammunition from Sellier and Bellot. These boxes are the perfect size for tucking in your range back or stacking in your gun safe for later use, after all, defense rounds aren’t just meant for loading your gun and waiting. Defense rounds have greater recoil and more muzzle rise than standard target rounds, so the only way you can be confident in your accuracy and shot placement is by practicing with them. Buy one box of ammo to keep your gun and spare magazines loaded; buy multiple boxes for training purposes. The day may come when your life depends on how much training you’ve done. Sellier and Bellot manufactures ammunition at their longtime factory in Uzice, Serbia. Order now if you want to be prepared for whatever may come your way.
