- Q & A
Over the years the .38 Special has gained serious popularity. Not only was it used as the standard issue for police departments across the country for 70 years but it’s the most popular revolver cartridge currently on the market. It has many fans due in part to its accuracy and manageable recoil, not to mention guns chambered in the cartridge tend to be reasonably priced and are often small enough to conceal with ease. If you own a gun chambered in .38 Special and use it for personal protection you need to make sure you keep it loaded with the right ammunition.
These particular .38 Special rounds are manufactured by Speer. They weigh in at 135 grain making them medium-weight for the cartridge size and offering the best of both worlds: light enough to travel at higher speeds, heavy enough to hit harder than their lightweight counterparts. These are Jacketed Hollow Point, JHP, rounds and begin to expand immediately upon impact. Because they’re jacketed expansion is controlled and slower allowing for greater penetration and the creation of a larger, more devastating wound cavity. This ammunition is designed for self-defense.
There are 1000 defense rounds in this case of ammunition; the case comes with 50 boxes containing 20 rounds each. Each round travels at a muzzle velocity of 860 feet per second and muzzle energy of 222 foot-pounds. These are +P rounds meaning they move faster and hit harder than standard .38 Special rounds. With 1000 rounds you can spend time honing your marksmanship with your chosen defense rounds which is absolutely vital if you carry your gun for self-defense. Speer manufactures these rounds at their factory in Lewiston, Idaho, according to high standards for performance and quality. At Speer they’re serious about creating high-quality self-defense rounds like these Gold Dot JHPs, and you should be serious about their use. Order now and train with a purpose.
