One of the cleaner all lead .38 Special range rounds you can find, the American made American Eagle 158 grain lead round nose cartridge is a great plinking round and very good in indoor ranges given the messy, smoky alternatives.
The pricing on the American Eagle target rounds is very hard to beat, and while these are purpose built for paper targets they do give you the whole .38 Special experience. They aren’t the tame range loads you’re used to, but they aren’t a heavy duty defensive round either – just good old fashioned fun to shoot, cheap ammo for your day at the range.
The 158 grain is a solid choice for moderate to mild recoil, and the cases allow you to handload later if you want to after collecting the Boxer primed brass. It just adds an extra bit of value to an already well balanced cartridge that’s sells almost as cheap as the cheapest imports.
If you need “all day” ammo prices but want “every time” reliability, American Eagle is the choice with this lead round nose 158 grain load. Cheap, reliable, simple, and nothing to hide.
