The .38 special cartridge (known as the 38 special) is a favored self-defense round. It is a lighter, and faster round than the .357 magnum, especially when fired out of a snub-nosed handgun. These rounds vary as you can order FMJ (full metal jacket) Hollow-Point, and the latest in personal defense technology. This round is used by civilians, the military, and police forces nationwide.

Grab a box of target rounds to go with your personal defense ammo, and you'll be set for practice and everyday carry. 38 Special ammunition is a popular choice for handguns, particularly for those who are looking for a round with less recoil and a moderate level of power. It is commonly used for self-defense, target shooting, and even hunting, and is available in a variety of types to suit different needs.

One of the main advantages of 38 Special ammo is its low recoil, which makes it easy to shoot accurately and control the firearm. This makes it a good choice for those who may be less experienced or have smaller hands, as well as for those who may be shooting for extended periods of time and want to minimize fatigue. 38 Special ammo is also widely available and relatively inexpensive compared to other calibers. This makes it a popular choice for those who shoot frequently or for those who are just starting out and don't want to invest a lot of money in ammunition.

There are several different types of 38 Special ammo available, including a full metal jacket, jacketed hollow points, and unjacketed hollow points. Full metal jacket rounds are designed for target shooting and training, as they have a harder bullet that is less likely to deform upon impact. Jacketed hollow point rounds are designed for self-defense and are intended to expand upon impact, creating a larger wound channel and increasing the chances of stopping an attacker. Bullets fired from unjacketed hollow point rounds are softer and more likely to distort on impact than those fired from jacketed hollow point rounds.

When picking out 38 Special ammunition, velocity is a key factor to think about. Higher-velocity rounds will often have greater energy upon contact, though they may also have more recoil and be noisier. It's possible that lower-velocity shots are quieter and have less recoil, but they may also have less energy when they hit their target.

The 38 Special ammo is a popular choice for handguns due to its low recoil, moderate power, and wide availability. It is commonly used for self-defense, target shooting, and hunting, and is available in a variety of types to suit different needs. Whether you are a seasoned shooter or just starting out, 38 Special ammo is a reliable choice for a variety of shooting applications.
