38 S&W Ammo

.38 S&W ammunition is an old soldier of a cartridge, having been introduced in 1877. A relatively light-shooting caliber typically used today for target shooting, the .38 Smith and Wesson is used in a variety of classic revolvers like the Colt Police Positive, S&W Victory, and Webley Mk IV.

Range loads typically fire a relatively heavy 158 grain lead round nose bullet; one notable exception is the 145 grain full metal jacket load from Fiocchi, which can be shot at indoor ranges. For self-defense, options are limited but good as they include jacketed hollow point offerings from well-regarded companies like Winchester and Buffalo Bore. You'll find them all for sale here at Widener's when in-stock with fast shipping.

    Owners of .38 S&W revolvers will enjoy the dependable accuracy of this .38 Smith & Wesson ammo from Remington's Performance Wheel Gun series. This ammunition can be used for simple target shooting as well as cowboy action matches. It uses a light kicking powder charge that enables the user to recover more quickly between shots. This promotes rapid, accurate fire at close range.

    Each cartridge in this box of 50 fires a 146 grain lead round nose bullet at a muzzle velocity of 668 feet per second. Note that lead nosed bullets may not be allowed at some indoor ranges. Conversely, these projectiles are ideal for shooting steel targets!

    Remington Performance Wheel Gun ammo is loaded in Lonoke, Arkansas using non corrosive Boxer primers and reloadable brass cases. Established in the early 19th century, Remington is one of only a few companies making both arms and ammunition in-house.
