NOTE: this is a +P 38 special round, which denotes that it is an overpressure load, not suitable for some firearms. Please ensure your firearm is capable of firing +P ammunition through the owner’s manual or by speaking with a competent gun expert or industry specialist.
That +P performance is evident comparatively to other rounds in the .38 Special marketplace with the following static ballistics: 950 feet per second velocity and 250 ft. lbs. of energy. You will routinely get 12+ inches of penetration in 10% ballistic Gelatin. Interestingly, this round had a lot to do with early ballistic testing in the FBI crime lab – where the 10% BG test originated.
This updated version of the original round features a reloadable nickel plated brass casing with a Boxer primer too.
