A: Thanks for reaching out Mark! It's really hard to fairly say a cartridge is low recoil, because I can't predict how much recoil you'll actually feel. (Perceived recoil is subjective.) That said, I can give you a sound estimate of how much objective recoil energy you'll get when you fire this round. Recoil energy is the product of muzzle velocity, bullet weight, powder weight and handgun weight. Let's assume you have an 14.7 oz. S&W M442 and this round has 5 grains of powder. That would mean this round will produce 7.36 ft lbs of recoil energy. By that same measure, Winchester's 110gr load (945 fps muzzle velocity) would produce 5.74 ft lbs of recoil energy. Those aren't rock solid estimates since they're not taking barrel length into account, but I can reasonably estimate that this round will hit you with about 25-30% stronger recoil than a 110 grain load.

A: Thanks for reaching out, Ashley! Very few cartridges have brass jacketed bullets, which are only used for self-defense. I believe what you're after is full metal jacket ammo for training, which has bullets with copper outer layers.
At the moment we only have one option for 38 Special +P ammo by the case: luckygunner.com/38-special-158-grain-p-total-metal-jacket-speer-lawman-1000-rounds. This ammo has total metal jacket bullets, which perform just like full metal jackets but with even less barrel fouling and air pollution.
For regular 38 Special FMJ by the box, we have three options:
PMC (S. Korea) - luckygunner.com/pmc-38-spl-ammo-for-sale-38special132fmjpmc-50
Magtech (Brazil) - luckygunner.com/38-special-125-gr-fmc-flat-magtech-50-round
Browning (USA) - luckygunner.com/38-special-130-grain-fmj-browning-50-rounds
These are all the same price and will all perform pretty much the same as each other. I've personally fired the Browning ammo, and I think it's perfectly serviceable for target shooting and range training. Hope that helps!

A: Hello Ed,
Yes we do! All we would need is a copy of your FID card in order to ship ammo to NJ.
