- Q & A
The .38 Special has a long history of use and popularity. It’s been around for roughly a century, and in that time it’s spent 70 years as the standard issue for law enforcement officers across the country and has become the most popular revolver caliber currently on the market. Guns chambered in .38 Special are favored by many for their manageable recoil, affordable pricing, and the fact that they’re often fairly easy to conceal. Yes, they’re popular, and if you own one odds are good you use it for self-defense. If you do, you need to keep it loaded with the right ammunition.
These particular .38 Special rounds are manufactured by Speer. Each round weighs in at 125 grain, making them moderately weighted and capable of moving at higher speeds than their weightier counterparts. These are JHP, Jacketed Hollow Point, rounds and begin to expand immediately upon impact. Expansion is controlled by their jackets allowing for greater penetration than standard HPs, and that means a more devastating wound cavity. These are +P rounds and produce greater power and speed overall than standard defense rounds. This ammunition is designed for self-defense use.
There are 50 defense rounds in this single box of ammunition from Speer. That’s just enough to keep your gun and speedloader or spare magazines loaded and ready. For training purposes, order an extra box or two. Remember, defense rounds produce more recoil and muzzle rise than target rounds, meaning they require practice for accuracy. These are Speer Gold Dot rounds which are favored by many law enforcement officers for the reliable performance. Speer manufactures ammunition at their longtime factory in Lewiston, Idaho. Order now and make sure your .38 Special is loaded and ready.
