This 38 Special cartridge is issued a 110 grain JHP bullet. That’s fairly light in 38 Special terms, which translates to a zippy 945 fps muzzle velocity without requiring higher-than-standard chamber pressure. In other words, if you have an older yet still perfectly functional revolver, it can handle this ammo.
This round’s JHP does not actually contain silver. (It would cost more if it did.) The exterior of the jacket is plated with an extremely thin layer of nickel. Why? Enhanced cosmetics, only. But the lead-core bullet does reliably undergo terminal expansion thanks to its nose cavity and the notched jacket surrounding it.
Factory fresh brass cases. They’re not just certain to slip in and out of your cylinder with ease. They are also reloadable, which makes them very much worth hanging on to if you intend to fire this ammo during target practice.
