This is overpressure ammo. It gives its 125 grain jacketed hollow point bullet a higher muzzle velocity than a standard pressure round could, which translates to comparatively stouter recoil and higher chamber pressure than some antique 38 Spl revolvers are designed to safely contain (check your firearm’s manual or ask its manufacturer if you’re uncertain). But thanks to its higher muzzle velocity, that JHP bullet is going to travel along a flatter trajectory and hit its target more forcefully. The JHP also expands with the utmost reliability, so you can count on the kind of terminal ballistics which halt a threat or anchor a small game animal quickly.
Black Hills loads the U.S. Armed Forces’ 5.56x45 sniper ammunition. This is not sniper ammunition, of course, although its fine reloadable brass cases and expertly paired Boxer primers and propellant charges are all loaded in accordance with peak standards for quality.
