A: Thanks for reaching out Bill! I assume you haven't got a Colt Police Positive Special (a 38 Special variant that was introduced in 1907) as you are under the impression that your revolver is chambered for 38 Short. The good news is that 38 S&W, 38 Short and 38 S&W Short are all different names for the same exact type of ammunition. That means this ammo (which also happens to be very good ammo) should function perfectly in your old revolver. Just be certain to stay away from 38 Long Colt and 38 Special and you should be good!

A: No sir, no part of this ammunition contains steel or any other ferrous metal. That's a solid brass case and a solid lead bullet!

A: Mark, those pistols were chambered for both .38 special and .38 Colt. I have heard of some chambered for the .38 S&W as well. These are different calibers and are not interchangeable. If your pistol is marked on the frame or barrel, ".38 Spec" it will certainly safely fire the standard pressure .38 special cartridges. You should avoid the higher pressure .38+P ammo. If you have any doubts or are unsure, please consult Uberti and they can tell from the serial number exactly what you need to know.
