- Q & A
For more than 70 years the .38 Special was the standard issue caliber weapon for law enforcement officers across the country. Even when it was replaced by the 9mm officers continued to carry guns chambered in .38 Special for backup guns (BUGs) or as their off-duty carry. Today it’s the most popular, best-selling revolver caliber on the market. Many first-time gun owners buy them for their manageable recoil, accuracy, and reasonable price, and many seasoned shooters prefer them for their accuracy and, yes, because they’re fun.
If you carry a .38 Special for self-defense purposes it’s absolutely vital you keep it loaded with the right ammunition such as these rounds made by Speer. Each round weighs in at 135 grain making these medium-weight for the cartridge size. These rounds are light enough to travel at higher speeds than their heavier counterparts and heavy enough to strike targets with a solid blow. These are Jacketed Hollow Point, JHP, rounds and begin to expand immediately upon impact. Their jackets control expansion allowing for deeper penetration and a larger wound cavity. This ammunition is designed for self-defense use.
When you order this box of ammunition from Speer you get 50 rounds. That’s just enough to keep your gun and speedloaders or spare magazines loaded and ready. If you want to train with your defense ammo of choice, which is highly recommended, order more than one box. These are +P rounds and produce more power overall than standard defense rounds. Each round has a muzzle velocity of 860 feet per second and muzzle energy of 222 foot-pounds. Speer manufactures ammunition at their factory in Lewiston, Idaho, according to exacting standards. Order now and be prepared for whatever may come.
