This powerful cartridge features Remington’s lead hollow point. The bullet is without a jacket that could have inhibited its terminal expansion, which alongside its nose cavity enables the LHP to double its diameter as it penetrates soft tissue. This ammo is marketed for self-defense applications, but the lever-action crowd can certainly use it for rodents and coyote. The LHP’s nose profile doesn’t threaten accidental ignition in a breech-loader’s magazine.
HTP ammo’s brass cases are the most consistent that Remington can draw, with uniform rims to promote even seating in a revolver’s cylinder. Remington’s classic Kleanbore primer is engineered to reduce fouling and prevent rusting. If you have an older 38 Special revolver, please make certain it’s rated to handle an overpressure round’s power before you order this ammo. (38 Special +P is also good for 357 Magnums.)
