38 Special Ammo

The most widely used revolver cartridge in the world is surely .38 Special ammo, a balanced caliber that offers solid all-around performance for target shooting and self-defense. While the traditional .38 Special load typically fires a 158 grain lead bullet at a relatively low velocity, modern self-defense ammo often opts for a lighter 110-130 grain projectile and a higher velocity approaching 1,000 feet per second. This is due to the nature of jacketed hollow point bullets, which expand more reliably at higher velocities. .38 Special cartridges can be fired in .357 Magnum revolvers, making them an excellent low-cost, low-recoil alternative choice for owners of such firearms.

.38 Special handguns are often used for concealed carry. Additionally, an LEO who is typically issued a semi-automatic pistol may choose to also carry a compact backup gun so he can perform a "New York Reload"--a quick switch from an empty primary weapon to a fully loaded secondary weapon. The .38 Special is a common caliber for this purpose.

While not historically accurate to the "Wild West" period, the .38 lends itself well to action shooting. Cowboy loads in .38 Special use bare lead in order to play nice with steel targets; they're also lighter-shooting than typical range ammo in order to help the user make fast, accurate shots without regard to stopping power.

You'll find 38 special ammunition frequently in-stock from CCI, Magtech, Federal, Winchester and other great brands here at Widener's. You can see all our available rounds for sale below.

    If you like to shoot your revolver indoors or carry Gold Dot hollow points, try Speer Lawman ammunition. These .38 Special cartridges produce the same recoil and external ballistics as their Gold Dot cousins without the expense of a sophisticated hollow point projectile. They can be used in both .38 SPL and .357 Magnum pistols.

    Each round in this bulk priced case of 1,000 fires a 125 grain total metal jacket bullet at 863 feet per second. TMJ bullets have jackets that fully encapsulate the core and keep lead particles from escaping as the round is fired. This is beneficial anywhere, but provides the most safety benefit where ventilation is suboptimal.

    Speer ammo is loaded in Lewiston, Idaho using non-corrosive Boxer primers and reloadable brass cases. Speer is a division of Vista Outdoor, which also includes CCI, Federal, and many other top shooting-related brands.

    Look no further than these .38 Special rounds from Sellier & Bellot for your outdoor target shooting needs! Each of these cartridges uses a reloadable brass casing and a non-corrosive Boxer primer. The round is topped off with a 158-grain lead round nose (LRN) bullet which fits a classic ballistic profile for the caliber.

    The LRN's smooth ogive allows shooters to achieve fast reloads. Each bullet is backed by a base crimp in its respective casing which prevents setback and jostling. This not only reduces the chance for a dud-fire after rough handling, but ensures concentric contact with the forcing cone which greatly improves stability and precision. Sellier & Bellot, a Czech manufacturer, is widely recognized as a high quality import brand with a reasonable price tag.

    This 1000-round case of .38 Special ammunition is a great choice for novice and expert revolver shooters who want to hone their skills using the same cartridges that they intend to carry. Sellier & Bellot builds these rounds using factory fresh brass casings and non-corrosive Boxer primers that won't affect the rifling of your barrel over time. When struck, the primer spits a hot flame into clean-burning powder which propels a 158-grain semi-jacketed soft point (SJSP) projectile out of the barrel.

    158 grains is a heavy rating for the .38 Special caliber and one of the most popular for duty, carry, and hunting due to its ability to deliver massive energy transfer at a variety impact ranges. The SJSP projectile has a flat nose, exposed upper portion, and copper-jacketed bottom which allows for ashtray-like expansion in a target without a compromise in structural integrity. This allows the bullet to penetrate through thick breastplates while its energy is appropriately spread into more vital areas.

    This 38 Special cartridge is from Remington’s UMC division. They specialize in making only a select few types of popular rounds, so they’re able to sell in the quantities that allow them to keep their customers’ prices low. This round has got the metal case projectile for which UMC is so well-known -- it’s functionally no different from a full metal jacket, and accordingly prevents bore fouling while keeping feeding smooth in a semi-automatic weapon.

    This round has got Remington’s Kleanbore primer. Your pistol’s bore will be much better off in the long run for having been exposed to so clean burning a primer, and that it’s non-corrosive means you can confidently set this case of ammo aside for a very long time. This round has also got the kind of quality brass casing that reloading enthusiasts covet.

    It’s worth noting that these 1,000 rounds of ammo are split up among only four boxes. That makes things a little more convenient while you’re carrying all of your gear to the range, having to bring only one box rather than several. A big box is also very handy for storing reloads in.

    This American-made 38 Special ammunition by Ammo Inc. is just the ticket for all your training, target shooting, and lazy Saturday afternoon backyard plinking needs. But it’s of especial value if you plan on spending a significant amount of your life at an indoor range, because it is loaded with total metal jacket projectiles.

    The conventional full metal jacket’s name isn’t entirely accurate. Its jacket doesn’t fully encompass its core, which is why it allows hot ignition to aerosolize lead. The TMJ (aka total metal case) features a jacket that totally envelops its lead core, so it won’t emit lead gas while it speeds through the barrel. Not only does a TMJ avoid fogging up an indoor range with toxic lead – it also preserves a firearm’s accuracy by keeping its rifling substantially cleaner.

    This ammo’s propellant features its Arizonan manufacturer’s Hyperclean Technology. It stimulates fuller combustion of the propellant during ignition, which has the benefit of even further reducing barrel fouling. The TMJ’s flat nose profile is safe for lever-action firearms, and its moderate muzzle velocity won’t produce sharp recoil. You also get reloadable brass cases when you fire this nonmagnetic ammo – very handy!

    This 500 round case of .38 Special ammunition from Remington delivers economical target practice with full metal jacket bullets suitable for both indoor and outdoor ranges. FMJs produce less fouling and airborne lead than lead round nose projectiles and are often allowed at indoor ranges where bare lead is not.

    Each cartridge in this case fires a medium weight 130 grain full metal jacket bullet at 790 feet per second. This makes it a relatively mild target load producing low recoil while maintaining excellent accuracy. It can also be fired in .357 Magnum revolvers as a cost-effective alternative to the magnum cartridge.

    Remington ammunition is made in the USA using reloadable brass cases and non-corrosive primers.

    Great Ammo and Service

    I got this after dealing with the -larcenous- prices that everyone else didn't seem to have any issues charging. Unable to understand how "new" calibers are released when availability and pricing were a joke for established calibers. These have functioned flawlessly and they fire "clean". The price was reasonable and I could get it in a quantity that made sense. I almost forgot the order that I'd placed on the weekend until I came home and happily found my box (thankfully left, as opposed to having to be there to sign for it). All around very happy and will re-order when needed. Thank you!

In contrast to a full wadcutter, this bullet’s tapered profile causes it to produce less drag in flight, so you can enjoy more accurate shooting. This is a cost-effective round, as its bullet is made entirely of lead. Its softness makes it a suitable choice for a personal protection as well, as it will warp and tumble as it penetrates a soft target in addition to making a wide hole through it.

    Prvi Partizan’s ammunition sits in that nice overlap between affordability and high quality. This round’s sensitive primer and clean burning propellant will keep your pistol happy, its new production brass casing will keep a handloader happy, and its attractive price tag will make everyone happy!

    The power to carve clean holes through paper targets – coupled with the ability to expand inside soft tissue. That’s the one-two punch you sign up for when you order a case of Prvi Partizan 38 Special 158 Grain LSWCHP ammo!

    The lead semi-wadcutter hollow point is not an excessively fancy projectile. This non-jacketed bullet’s side profile looks like that of a crayon, complete with a flat tip and angular shoulder. Its unique shape enables the LSWCHP to pass through a sheet of paper without making a tattered mess of it, which makes this ammo a natural pick for serious revolver marksmen. The LSWCHP’s flat nose also makes it lever-gun friendly.

    If you use this ammo for personal protection with a snubnose, its broad tip is still going to inflict more damage to flesh and organs than an FMJ’s round nose could have. And if you defend yourself with a long-barreled revolver or rifle, its nose cavity will double down in the form of deleterious terminal expansion.

    Prvi Partizan rolls their own brass to make strong, straight and reloadable Boxer-primed rimmed cases. Non-corrosive and nonmagnetic, you can enjoy firing this ammo wherever you please and without damaging your firearm!

    The .38 Special has become one of the most popular handgun rounds in the U.S., and few can claim a product as good as Prvi Partizan, a leader in global ammunition manufacturing.

    With a 130-grain bullet, this is the smallest .38 Special round made by Prvi Partizan, which makes 9 different cartridges of this type. Because of the smaller size, it has less energy but greater down-range accuracy. At 50 meters, it only drops 5.9 centimeters. By comparison, the 158-grain rounds drop about 7.6. This round uses a full metal jacket, which allows for greater penetration and provides excellent feeding into auto-loading chambers.

    With over 40 different calibers and options for both rifle and handguns, Prvi Partizan has become a popular brand for both target shooters and hunters. They have a meticulous inspection process that has helped them create ammunition that is reliable and consistent.

    This .38 Special ammunition is an inexpensive, dependable training load for your revolver. Each cartridge in this bulk priced case of 1,000 fires a medium weight 130 grain full metal jacket bullet at a muzzle velocity of 950 feet per second. The FMJ bullet makes this ammo suitable for virtually all indoor ranges; however, note that use of FMJ is discouraged in some rifles with tubular magazines.

    Compared to other .38 Special loads, this is a relatively powerful round that will serve well as a stand-in for hot defensive ammo by producing realistic levels of recoil and excellent accuracy. However, it is still within the standard pressure range and can be used in firearms not rated for +P cartridges.

    Fiocchi ammunition is loaded in both the USA and Italy using reloadable brass and non-corrosive primers.

    This 38 Special cartridge from Remington’s UMC line of ammunition sports a 130 grain metal case projectile. Tell your friends that you’re shooting so exotically named a bullet and you’ll surely win admiration from some of them. The ones who know that a metal case is 100 percent analogous to a vanilla full metal jacket will be somewhat less impressed, however. Regardless, a metal case bullet is perfect for the range owing to its affordability, ability to stave off bore leading, and tendency to plow through most types of targets -- even the more obstinate ones used for plinking.

    UMC ammo features Remignton’s own Kleanbore primer. It burns hot to do a good job of igniting as much of the propellant simultaneously as it’s able, and also burns clean to keep your pistol’s bore in better shape before you can get around to cleaning it. The 38 Special is a popular caliber with handloaders, so even if you don’t reload yourself you should save these rounds’ brass casings for someone who does.

    It’s a weird world out there. You never know what kinds of challenges it’s going to present you with. But if one of those challenges happens to include a violent threat to your life, then you’ll be glad you prepared by ordering a whole case of Winchester Super-X 38 Special +P ammo ahead of time.

    This is an overpressure load, with a higher chamber pressure than the standard defined by SAAMI. That means it will damage a revolver that isn’t rated for +P, slightly accelerate wear and tear on any firearm’s barrel, and generate more recoil as well. The payoff? A flatter trajectory – as well as greater striking energy.

    The semi-jacketed hollow point is an effective bullet for self-defense. Its jacket doesn’t extend all the way to its nose cavity’s rim, which helps the bullet expand wider following lower impact velocities. Its jacket also does a good job of warding off core/jacket separation which could shorten penetration depth.

    This ammo’s reloadable brass cases aren’t just plated with nickel for cosmetic purposes. Nickel guards the underlying brass against corrosion, and also makes its surface lower-friction to promote surer feeding and extraction.

    Would you like to reduce your lead exposure? Then, Ammo Inc.’s 38 Special ammunition, which is designed to dramatically reduce the shooter’s exposure to lead may be a great option.

    It’s all about that 158 grain total metal jacket bullet (the manufacturer calls it a “total metal case,” but that’s just a different name for what most shooters call the TMJ). Unlike a regular FMJ, the TMJ’s jacket covers the base of its lead core. That physical barrier prevents the heat of ignition from burning any lead off the bullet, so you can breathe cleaner air and witness less overall bore fouling.

    This ammunition is made in Wisconsin with reusable brass cases and sensitive Boxer primers. Ammo Inc.’s proprietary Hyperclean Technology secures even cleaner performance by reducing the amount of uncombusted propellant residue that accumulates in the barrel. Nonmagnetic and compatible with lever guns!

    This 500 round case of .38 Special target ammunition is a highly cost-effective choice for outdoor shooters. These cartridges can be used in both .38 SPL and .357 Magnum revolvers and produce good accuracy with relatively low recoil.

    Each round in this case fires a medium weight 150 grain lead round nose bullet at 845 feet per second. Note that many indoor ranges do not allow ammunition with unjacketed bullets.

    Winchester ammo is loaded in Oxford, Mississippi using non-corrosive primers and brass cases.

    158-grain semi-jacketed hollow point (SJHP) loads are never a bad choice for self-defense in full-size revolvers or pocket-size wheel guns chambered in .38 Special. This particular SJHP projectile has a shallow hollow cavity carved into a lead nose with a flat surface and plenty of exposure, allowing for great energy transfer on contact and expansion that follows the pre-cut lines in the bullet's copper jacket. During entry, the bullet's expansion will cause it to yaw, depositing momentum in vitals while its cannelure prevents jacket separation, guaranteeing that adequate penetration, and thereby threat-stopping ability, is preserved.

    The toothed cannelure also acts as a crimp point for a reloadable brass casing, preventing setback and movement from hurting accuracy or reliability after the cartridge experiences recoil vibrations in the cylinder. The brass casing is fitted with a non-corrosive Boxer primer that won't leave behind any caustic materials on metal surfaces. This ammo is made by Magtech, a Brazilian company that is dedicated to quality exports and uses some of the best machinery and quality control processes in the industry.

    This .38 Special ammunition from Fiocchi excels in the training role, delivering solid accuracy and realistic ballistics at a low cost. A relatively "hot" standard pressure load, this ammo fires a 130 grain full metal jacket bullet at 950 feet per second, making it a good stand-in for expensive defensive cartridges.

    These rounds can also be used as an inexpensive range load for .357 Magnum revolvers. However, they may not be suitable for use in all rifles with tubular magazines due to their jacketed construction.

    These cartridges come in boxes of 50 and use non-corrosive Boxer primers and reloadable brass cases.
