Details

Sellier and Bellot has been producing cartridge ammunition since 1825. Today they produce ammunition using high quality components which is used by hunters, competition shooters, law enforcement agencies and militaries around the world.

Video Transcript:

Sellier and Bellot is an ammo company from the Czech Republic that's been around since the 1820's. They're owned by the CBC parent company that also runs the Brazilian-based Magtech, another respected ammo company.

Today, S&B makes ammo for civilians, military forces, and law enforcement in countries all over the world. They produce a wide variety of handgun loads, including a few 38 Special rounds, like the one that we're looking at for this review.

This 158 grain full metal jacket load features a reloadable brass case and a non-corrosive primer. Like a lot of the 158 grain 38's you'll find, this one has very mild recoil. With the jacketed bullets, you also avoid some of the smoke and toxic fumes associated with the plain lead round nose bullets.

We tried out a couple of boxes of this ammo with a few different guns. We used five revolvers and one lever action carbine to get a feel for how it handles.

The recoil with this round is incredibly mild, which was especially noticeable when shooting the lightweight Ruger snub nose. When fired in a larger revolver and our carbine, you could barely feel the recoil at all. This makes it a great load for introducing new shooters to center fire handguns, or just something fun for plinking at the range.

Reliability was no problem, with consistent ignition and extraction in all of our guns. We tested accuracy at 25 yards, using our Marlin 1894 on a bench rest. Our 10 shots grouped really nicely in a small pattern just to the right of the bullseye. This rifle tends to shoot slightly better with Magnum loads, but this S&B ammo was one of the most consistent rounds that we've tested in the Marlin, in either a 38 or 357.

Overall, I've been pretty impressed with the performance of S&B ammo in any caliber, but this 38 Special load exceeded my expectations.

If you want a low recoil 38 Special that's still accurate and reliable, then check out this 158 grain full metal jacket load from S&B.
