Magtech - Semi Jacketed Hollow Point - 158 Grain 38 Special Ammo - 1000 Rounds
Magtech's 158 grain bullet has a muzzle velocity of 800+ feet per second with just under 230 foot pounds of energy. The jacketed hollow point provides the perfect balance between penetration and expansion. This 1000 round lot is perfect for keeping on hand for target and training shooting, but is designed to be an easy shooting self-defense round. This is a full case of bulk 38 special ammo – with 20 individual boxes that each contain 50 rounds.
In 1898 Smith & Wesson introduced the .38 Special as an improvement upon the .38 Colt, which was proving underpowered in battle as a replacement military sidearm round for the venerable Colt SAA. Even though many of the militaries at the dawn of the 20th century began moving towards semi autos, revolvers were kept in service for reliability and simplicity of function: they rarely, if ever jam despite adverse conditions. And the .38 Special proved to be a competent round for that purpose: it has served faithfully in the military as well as law enforcement and civilian shooting applications ever since.
Ever since becoming a commercial distributor of CBC in 1990, Magtech's blue and white brand labeling is a common accessory in range bags and shooting ranges. This is because it has proven itself with a reputation for reliability. Magtech's brass cases are boxer primed for reloadability.
