1000 rounds of one of the most proven law enforcement loadouts in history, this is the famous Federal 125 grain semi jacketed hollow point in .38 Special +P that was used by so many agencies and law enforcement outfits for decades – with a modern enhancement.
NOTE this is a +P over pressure load. It will require a gun built to a specification that can handle the additional pressure created in the round and on bearing surfaces. Generally you can find out if your gun is capable of shooting +P ammunition by looking in the owner’s manual or consulting a well versed industry expert/gunsmith.
The nickel plated brass case is not an original feature of the round but offers a modern enhancement in ease of use and utility.
The projectile offers good penetration with an average standard above 12 inches in standardized FBI testing, with a potent (for .38 Special) 950 feet per second velocity and 250 ft. lbs. of energy at the muzzle. This all translates to a load that can go head to head with some of the best small caliber offerings for concealed carry or even for carry in a duty weapon for those who still favor a .38 Special.
