Don’t pass up on an opportunity to order a few boxes of hard-to-find 38 S&W ammo! Fiocchi loads this ammunition so fans of classic revolvers can take to the range and really work on their aim, and its modern features make it much better than ammo from 100 years ago.
This cartridge is loaded with a 145 grain lead round nose bullet. It lacks a copper jacket, although its protective coating does effectively reduce the rate of barrel fouling. The LRN’s nose profile and inability to expand make it an inadvisable choice for self-defense, but its absence of brittle copper does make it the safer selection for shooting steel targets.
Fiocchi loads these simple range cartridges with smokeless double base powder. Expect consistent velocities across a wide range of temperatures, as well as reduced recoil to boot. Fiocchi’s new brass cases are fitted with non-corrosive Boxer primers, and they are reloadable.
