38 Special - 158 gr FMJ - Fiocchi Perfecta - 50 Rounds
This popular target shooting and personal defense cartridge began as an improvement upon the then in service .38 Colt. Smith & Wesson’s .38 Special was introduced in 1898 along with an improved Hand Ejector model revolver to shoot the new caliber. While it was a prominent law enforcement cartridge from the 1920’s through the 1980’s it continues to be a popular back up as well as home defense and target cartridge.
Perfecta’s 158 grain, full metal jacketed bullet by Fiocchi exits the muzzle at 984 feet per second and 330 foot pounds of energy. While offering a bit more energy than typical range ammo, it simulates the performance of defense ammo without the prohibitive cost of actually doing so. You’ll get 50 rounds when you buy this ammo today. Of course, we also offer this same ammo in a bulk 38 special, 1,000 round pack for sale here.
Fiocchi’s Perfecta cartridges are able to do this thanks to a cleaner burning, more efficient powder mix. The company is well established, both in Europe and the US for providing quality cartridge components, including reloadable cases. As it should be as it has been a developing member of the industry since the creation of metallic cartridges in the late 19th century. What is new is that the Perfecta line’s propellant means better results at the range as well as less cleaning time required when returning home at the end of the day.
