Despite the overwhelming popularity of semi-automatic pistols, the 38 Special remains one of America’s favorite handgun cartridges. It is not a dominating round in terms of power, but its reliability, manageable recoil, and proven effectiveness for self-defense will all make sure the 38 Special sticks around for a very long time.
The 38 Special performs well with a wide range of bullets. 38 Special bullets for reloading typically weigh 110 to 158 grains. LRN and SWC wadcutters are commonly loaded for target shooting, while a variety of available JHPs let reloaders create self-defense loads of their own design.
Reloading the 38 Special is relatively easy thanks to its large case and tolerance for a variety of different propellant charges – you do not have to worry about whether a charge can cycle a semi-auto, after all. Seating a bullet to the correct depth isn’t overcomplicated. The low power round is gentle on its case, so brass can be reloaded dozens of times. Many shooters don’t even bother cleaning their brass since they can just pluck it out of a cylinder once fired!
The 357 Magnum bullet shares an identical .357 diameter, making 38 Special bullets an even more versatile investment.

Please note: This isn’t loaded ammunition. Component bullets are basically fishing sinkers until they have cases, propellant and primers.
Home cooking is always better than takeout. Handloaded ammo is always better than the factory stuff, too! If you prefer to put a personal touch on every round you fire, then you’re going to love what Berry’s is up to.
At 125 grains and .357” in diameter, this makes the perfect bullet for either 38 Special or 357 Magnum. The bullet is well balanced thanks both to its swaged lead core and electroplated copper jacket, and its flat meplat is great for stamping holes into paper targets.
An electroplated jacket isn’t just evenly distributed. It also leaves no part of the core exposed to propellant gasses, which prevents the evaporation of toxic lead during ignition. Berry’s restrikes their TMJ bullets once they have plated them, creating a durable bond in the process.
These training bullets are .518" long. Loading them to velocities in excess of 1,250 fps may lead to core/jacket separation. Plated bullets are not recommended for firearms with ported barrels or compensators.
