This new .38 Special +P ammunition in Federal's Personal Defense Micro series is optimized for the subcompact revolvers popular among many concealed carriers. These cartridges feature an HST jacketed hollow point bullet that is seated deep in the casing. This distinctive feature is intended to reduce the amount of air in the long case (a byproduct of the .38 SPL's black powder heritage) and help the propellant burn completely even in the short barrels of snub-nosed revolvers for maximum velocity.

Each cartridge in this box of 20 fires a 130-grain bullet with a high caliber skived tip designed to defeat an assailant's heavy clothing or other barriers without clogging and expand for maximum stopping power. The wide-nosed bullet used in this load is designed to strike an attacker decisively without overpenetrating and causing collateral damage to bystanders or property.

Federal ammunition is loaded in Anoka, Minnesota using non-corrosive Boxer primers and nickel plated brass cases. Nickel plating isn't just for show; it improves the case's durability and corrosion resistance. This is a particular benefit for defensive loads that are carried every day and rarely fired.

This ammo is rated +P, meaning it has a more powerful powder charge than standard pressure .38 Special ammo. As a result, it produces stronger terminal performance but also increased recoil and muzzle blast and should be used only in revolvers rated for its higher pressures.
