Sellier & Bellot - Full Metal Jacket - 158 Grain 38 Special Ammo - 1000 Rounds
Smith & Wesson’s .38 Special remains the most popular revolver cartridge for many reasons: not the least of which being reliability and relatively easy recoil. Introduced in 1898 as an improvement upon the .38 Colt and loaded with black powder, the cartridge quickly made the jump to smokeless and was the caliber for S&W’s new hand ejector models. By the 1920’s it was the primary caliber of choice for many law enforcement agencies and is the sidearm caliber of the US Air Force to this day. Private shooters enjoy the comfort and accuracy of the round for sporting and defensive purposes. The 158 grain full metal jacket bullet by Sellier & Bellot exits the barrel at 889 feet per second with a muzzle energy of 277 foot pounds. This is a dependable range training and target shooting round for the great many revolvers and carbines in this caliber.
Sellier & Bellot remains a premium manufacturer of munitions and munition components almost two centuries after its founding in what is now the Czech Republic. Prized for its reloadable cases and clean burning powder, US shooters can now enjoy the same quality product used by European marksmen at home and on safari.
