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.

    The round nosed bullet used in this ammo is safe for the tubular magazines of popular carbines, but may not be permitted at all indoor ranges due to lead exposure concerns.

The bullets weigh in at 130 grains which is a medium weight for the caliber and will be pleasant to shoot in frames of any size or material.

    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 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.

    Magtech Cowboy ammo is loaded in Brazil by CBC, which also produces its own ammunition components. These include reloadable brass and one historically inaccurate but highly welcome addition--non-corrosive Boxer primers.

    Remington "High Terminal Performance" (HTP) pistol and revolver rounds are a huge step forward in quality ammunition for concealed carry pieces as well as home defense handguns. These .38 Special HTP cartridges are built using premium grade primers, nickle-plated brass casings for effortless cylinder loading and ejection, and 125 grain semi-jacketed hollow-point (SJHP) projectiles; the exposed lead of the hollow cavity combines with the +P charge to produce deep penetration and reliable expansion on impact out of any barrel length. Each casing is crimped at the projectile cannelure in order to prevent bullets from creeping out due to recoil.

    The Remington name echoes across American shooting history in regards to the development of staple hunting calibers as well as steady firearms manufacture. Remington is the only U.S. company to produce firearms and ammunition on domestic soil and bases their designs and innovation on 2 centuries of experience.
