Introduced in 1899 as an improvement upon the .38 Long Colt cartridge that was in service with the US military. The Colt cartridge, however, continued to receive poor field reports in after action reports from the US Army fighting against the Moros rebels in the Philippines. While not a primary caliber adopted by the US Army, the .38 Special has since found a strongly approved place with civilian law enforcement and private shooters for recreation and defense. Easy recoil and dependable accuracy have made the round a popular mainstay in the US shooting world. The 158 grain fully enclosed bullet by Magtech has a muzzle velocity of 755 feet per second with 200 foot pounds of energy. The enclosed bullet reduces lead traces in the air, a primary consideration for indoor ranges.

Introduced in 1990 as primarily a range and training ammunition provider, Magtech’s consistently reliable performance and secondary provider of reloadable brass cases has given the company the ability to broaden their product line into ammunition with more specific applications. Not only doe hunting and personal defense but also cartridges suited for the growing number of indoor ranges available to the general public. Magtech’s quality and diversity of products have almost 30 years of consumer approval.
