Colt introduced the .38 LC round in 1875 for use by revolver shooters looking for something more powerful than the older .38 Short Colt yet lighter than the standard .45 Long Colt. The reduced weight and cheaper bullet attracted the US Army’s attention and it was adopted for use in 1892. In short order, it was found to be underpowered for use in combat and was quickly replaced by the military going back to .45 calibers and in civilian use by the .38 Special. Never the less, it remains an important step in US revolver history and shooters with the older firearms chambered in this caliber find it still fun to shoot at the range.
