A rather famous use of .38 S&W ammunition came during an assassination attempt against (then former) President of the United States Teddy Roosevelt – the attempt, unsuccessful thanks to a heavy folded stack of speech pages in Roosevelt’s pocket. It was also used to kill a sitting President, James Garfield, who actually died of complications from infection and perhaps lead poisoning of the long-winded, chronic type. The round was also the centerpiece for a famously copied design of break open revolvers that touted the value aspect of the build. All-in, the lethality of the round was far superior to the two famous Presidential assassination attempts it is known for having been a part of.

This is a classic load consisting of a brass case with Boxer primer, with a moderate powder load and a lead round nosed bullet that does not have a jacket, much like the earlier versions of the classic cartridge.

This round is NOT TO BE CONFUSED with the .38 Special or any other .38 caliber ammunition. It is not interchangeable. The round offers solid performance and it is generally compatible with most firearms that can fire it. It should be noted however, that many guns that were made at the turn of the century in this chambering, were of poor quality manufacture, and a thorough check on the suitability for the firearm to be fired safely is recommended before shooting modern ammunition from it.
