This cartridge is suitable for self-defense and hunting with any 38 Special revolver rated for overpressure ammo, as well as 357 Magnum pistols and rifles. Its added power means this round’s 125 grain bullet will hit a close-range target with over 220 ft lbs of energy – in other words, more than the minimum threshold typically recommended for neutralizing a human-sized target.
This round’s JHP has only a partial jacket. The exposed lead around the nose cavity’s rim quite naturally cannot cause a feeding jam in a revolver, and helps the bullet expand faster and more reliably. This bullet retains virtually all of its weight as it expands up to double its original diameter, enabling it to deliver a deep, wide and crippling would channel.
Remington selects their best rimmed brass for their HTP loads, as well as their classic Kleanbore Boxer primers. You’ll definitely want to slip these rounds’ spent brass back in their boxes for future handloading projects!
