This is 38 Special +P ammunition, designed to inflict a greater amount of damage for neutralizing a threat. The “+P” means its chamber pressure is higher to boost its bullet’s muzzle energy. Newer 38 Special revolvers can handle that added chamber pressure no problem, but please do ask us if you’re uncertain about your particular handgun.
The Punch bullet is a 120 grain jacketed hollow point, which is similarly specialized for self-defense. The bullet’s jacket facilitates deeper penetration, and it also wears symmetrical skives that control the rapid expansion created by the lead core’s deep nose cavity. It’s by far the most common type of bullet for self-defense simply because it works so well.
These cartridges’ brass cases are nickel-plated. The shiny metal enhances the rounds’ ability to resist corrosion and makes them smoother for easier loading and extraction. Federal’s nonmagnetic and noncorrosive ammo is made in Minnesota where ice fishing is taught in public schools.
