.38 Special 125 Grain Round Nose Flat Point Lead- Target shooters, here is a great round for you! The performance and reliability of this round is A++ and extremely affordable. As is all of our ammunition, these rounds are 100% hand loaded and inspected for top quality in the industry.
The .38 Special was designed in 1898 to be a higher velocity round, with better penetration properties than the .38 Long Colt that was in Government Service in the Philippines during the Spanish–American War. The .38 Long Colt revolver round wouldn’t penetrate the insurgent Philippine Morro warrior shields, and the Government contracted the new revolver round to Smith & Wesson.
Except for case length, the .38 Special is identical to the .38 Short Colt, .38 Long Colt, and .357 Magnum. This allows the .38 Special round to be safely fired in revolvers chambered for the .357 Magnum, and the .38 Long Colt in revolvers chambered for .38 Special, increasing the versatility of this cartridge.
