Loading your daily carry weapon with high-quality defense rounds is one of the most important parts of concealed carry. Good defense rounds decelerate as they expand, preventing over-penetration, which protects innocent bystanders from being accidentally shot, and both retain enough weight and expand enough to create crippling, catastrophic wound cavities. Some calibers benefit from an extra boost to give them the ability to deliver more stopping power, too, and that’s where +P rounds come in. +P rounds are also called overpressure rounds and are rounds packed to slightly higher pressure to produce greater velocity and energy; they shouldn’t be confused with proof rounds or high pressure, magnum rounds.

One of the calibers that benefits quite a bit from being loaded to +P specifications is the .38 Special. As a +P round these cartridges can reach substantial speeds and impart significantly more energy than they would otherwise be capable of, but there’s one thing you need to keep in mind. Not all handguns are rated for +P use, so make sure your gun is rated for +P round use. If you aren’t sure, check with the manufacturer. And remember, even guns that are capable of handling these rounds will wear out faster with repeated +P use than they would with regular pressure rounds. That’s not to say that you shouldn’t train with these rounds, because you should – after all, your accuracy won’t be sufficient without proper training – but take care not to overdo it for the sake of your gun.

These .38 Special +P rounds are 125 grain, making them reasonably heavy for the cartridge size. These are Jacketed Hollow Point (JHP) rounds and deliver controlled expansion on impact. JHPs slow down as they expand, creating a devastating wound track, and also penetrate more deeply than HPs, so that wound track is deeper. Each of these rounds has a muzzle velocity of 950 feet per second and muzzle energy of 258 foot-pounds. This ammunition is specifically designed for self-defense. There are 50 defense rounds in the box, and ammunition is manufactured at Federal’s longtime plant in Anoka, Minnesota. Order now to harness the full power of your .38 Special.
