The .38 Special has a rich history. It was designed in 1898 by Smith and Wesson as a more powerful option than the existing .38 Long Colt. Between the 1920s and 1990s it was the standard issue caliber for law enforcement agencies across the country, giving it a 70-year run as the gun chambering of choice for police everywhere. Even when it was no longer used by departments many officers continued to carry it as their backup gun (BUG) or off-duty carry. Today the .38 Special is the best-selling revolver caliber on the market.
These .38 Special rounds are made by the legendary Winchester company which was founded in 1866 at the height of the Wild West. At 130 grain these rounds are considered medium-weight for the cartridge size. That means they’re still light enough to fly down-range at higher speeds but heavy enough to strike targets solidly. These are FMJ, Full Metal Jacket, rounds and do not expand on impact. Target rounds can travel long distances before stopping which is one reason to always have a reliable backstop in place during range time. This ammunition is meant for target practice, self-defense training, and plinking.
When you order this single box of ammunition from Winchester you get 50 target rounds. This box is the perfect size for stashing in your range bag or pack when you’re headed out for range time. It’s also great for stacking on the shelf of your gun safe, because you can never have too much ammo! Each of these rounds produces a muzzle velocity of 800 feet per second and muzzle energy of 185 foot-pounds. Winchester manufactures ammunition with pride here in the United States just as they always have. Order now to hit the range with your .38 Special.
