The .38 Special was designed in 1898 and gained instant popularity for its manageable recoil and easy accuracy. Although it’s been around for more than a century it’s still the most popular revolver round on the market, with a good many users utilizing their .38 Specials for self-defense. One interesting detail about this cartridge is that the bullet loaded in it is actually .357”; the .38 refers to the diameter of the fully loaded case. And when it comes to great features, the fact that .38 Special rounds can be fired through guns chambered for .357 Magnum is a pretty useful one.
At 158 grain these .38 Special rounds fall in the middle of the weight spectrum for the cartridge size. Being medium-weight is actually a nice, balanced place to be because it means these rounds are light enough to fly down-range at good speeds but heavy enough to still strike targets with solid force. These are Lead Round Nose (LRN) rounds and don’t expand on impact, but the lead in the nose might deform slightly on impact, which should never be mistaken for expansion. Each of these rounds leaves the barrel of your gun at a muzzle velocity of 840 feet per second. This ammunition is fantastic for target practice, shooting drills, and plinking.
