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.
