Magtech - Full Metal Jacket - 130 Grain 38 Special Ammo - 50 Rounds
In 1898, Smith & Wesson introduced an elongated version of the .38 Long Colt as an improvement on that cartridge which was found to be underperforming for the US military in the Philippines. While the .38 Special’s performance exceeded its predecessor, it in turn was supplanted by the .45 ACP as the primary US military round. Nevertheless, the .38 Special remianed as a secondary round for logistics and second echelon troops. The civilian world, however, embraced it without reservation. By the 1920’s law enforcement adopted the .38 Special and it has remained a popular civilian round for defense and sport shooting to this day by both police and citizens. The 130 grain full metal jacket round by Magtech has a muzzle velocity of 800 feet per second with 185 foot pounds of energy. It is ideal for both target shooting and range training.
Magtech’s reputation as an affordable training ammunition producer has been well established since its release in America since 1990. Shooters have found that the reloadable cases and consistent performance to be at or above par, making it a popular choice at the range. Meanwhile, Magtech continues to produce an ever expanding line of defense oriented ammunition based on this success.
