The .38 Special has been around since 1898, and even being over a century old the cartridge not only remains popular but is the most popular revolver cartridge on the market. From 1920 to the 1990s it was the standard issue for most police departments in the country, giving it more than 70 years of service in law enforcement. There aren’t any other rounds that can claim such longevity. Today the .38 Special is most commonly used for self-defense and is popular for its manageable recoil, accuracy, and affordable price.
These .38 Special rounds are made by Prvi Partizan, a company with years of experience producing quality ammunition for shooters like you. The company got its start almost 100 years ago when Jakob Posinger agreed to move his workshop into military barracks in Uzice; the Yugoslavian government had made the request, and he was willing. Within two years he had a team of 150, and within a few more the government gave him land so he could build his own factory. Today Prvi Partizan is an established presence in the industry and well known for their dedication to quality.
At 158 grain these are fairly weight rounds for the cartridge size, so they’ll deliver a solid punch on impact. They’re LRN (Lead Round Nose) and as such won’t expand on impact, although the lead may deform a bit on impact. Each round has a muzzle velocity of 902 feet per second and muzzle energy of 283 foot-pounds. This ammunition is great for target practice, shooting drills, and plinking. There are 500 target rounds in this box. Prvi Partizan manufactures ammunition at their factory in Uzice, Serbia, according to SAAMI or CIP specifications.
