In 1898, Smith and Wesson came out with the rimmed, straight-cased centerfire cartridge known s the .38 Special. And in the more than 100 years since the day it hit the market, it has remained a favorite of shooters looking for light-framed weapons with accuracy and low recoil. According to sales statistics, it’s the most popular revolver cartridge not only in the U.S., but world-wide, and if you have a .38 Special, you need some good target rounds.
There are a variety of choices available for feeding your .38 Special, and one not always thought of I the wadcutter, or, in this case, semi-wadcutter. This ammunition is LSWC – Lead Semi-Wadcutter – and is a nice choice for target practice. They punch a nice, clean hole in paper targets, allowing for more accurate scoring, and have a reputation for maintaining accuracy at distances over 100 yards away, which is fairly unique for the cartridge. At 158 grain these are medium-weight rounds, which is a nice middle ground for target practice. This ammunition has a muzzle velocity of 800 feet per second and muzzle energy of 225 foot-pounds.
These are remanufactured rounds made by Ultramax, a company based in Rapid City, South Dakota, an founded in 1986. Their ammunition is competitively priced and used by many shooters who want to shoot at high volumes without emptying their wallets. The once-fired brass cases are cleaned, pressure-tested, de-primed, reamed, and roll-sized, then loaded. Boxer primer is used, so you’re more easily able to reload them again yourself. There are 50 rounds in this box so you can put a few rounds through your gun and get a feel for the reason behind the Ultramax slogan “We cover America.”
