Sellier & Bellot - Lead Wadcutter - 148 Grain 38 Special Ammo - 50 Rounds
From personal defense to target shooting, the .38 Special by Smith & Wesson remains one of the most trusted and dependable rounds available on the market, even in competition with the 9mm. Like the semi auto round, the. 38 is capable of delivering a variety of bullet types for different shooting applications. One of the most interesting and comfortable shooting type is the wadcutter: a cylinder of lead that punches neat holes in paper (as well as surprising trauma on soft tissue) at a low velocity with very little recoil.
The 148 grain WC bullet used by Sellier & Bellot in this 38 SPL ammo exits the barrel at 699 feet per second with 161 foot pounds of energy. It is not an ideal defense round, but for clear reads off paper targets and an afternoon full of target shooting, this cartridge is sure to please.
When considering the fact that muzzle loading black powder firearms were cutting edge 200 years ago and comparing that to modern ammunition, it becomes apparent that there have been a lot of advances in ammunition design. Sellier & Bellot has been there every step of the way. The Czech based producer has participated in every development and provided premium ammunition to shooters first in Europe and now in the US.
