This 38 Special cartridge is fitted up with a standard weight 158 grain jacketed hollow point projectile. Its 968 fps muzzle velocity won’t punish your hand with recoil, but that’s still fast enough to punch over 300 ft lbs of energy into a threat at close range – more than powerful enough for self-defense, especially if you follow up four or five times.
Norma’s JHP wears evenly spaced notches around its tip. These help the bullet break apart into even sections during penetration, promoting the kind of uniform terminal expansion that is most effective at neutralizing a determined threat.
Norma loads ammo at their production facility in Åmotfors, Sweden. Swedes are famously determined workers, and they labor over their components and assembly to turn out ammo that works just as hard as they do.
