The .38 Special spent more than 70 years as the standard issue round for law enforcement agencies all over the country. And even though it’s been replaced by larger rounds, there are many officers who continue to carry the round as a backup gun (BUG) or even as their daily carry when they’re off duty. In the civilian world it’s the most popular revolver round on the market and is frequently used as a self-defense weapon. If you use your .38 Special for personal protection you need to get plenty of range time in to ensure your shot placement is dead-on, and for that you need a big case of ammo.

These rounds weigh 158 grain, making them moderately weighted for the .38 Special. At this weight these rounds will pack a decent punch while remaining light enough to reach out for your target with good speed. These are Full Metal Case rounds which are just like Full Metal Jacket, so they aren’t going to expand on impact. Each round leaves the barrel of your gun with a muzzle velocity of 755 feet per second and impacts targets with a muzzle energy of 200 foot-pounds. This ammunition is great for target practice, shooting drills, and plinking.

When you order this box of ammunition you get 1000 target rounds, which is a pretty awesome number. Just think of the drills you can run through and the skills you can master with 1000 rounds. And because Magtech produces these rounds in fresh brass cases with boxer primer, you can police your spent brass, reload it, and get even more range time. Magtech has been manufacturing ammunition at their factory in Sao Paulo, Brazil, since 1926. All ammunition undergoes extensive testing and must pass strict quality control measures. Find out just how far your skills can take you by ordering this 1000-round box of target rounds.
