Hollow Point

38 special hollow point ammunition is designed with a bullet that expands upon contact with a target. This hollow front or point absorbs flesh and expands as pressure forces the point to open. This creates a wider diameter bullet, causing a larger wound channel, and slowing the bullet down. Since the bullet will rapidly lose velocity the chance of over-penetration is minimized, allowing for optimal conditions to take down your target with lethal force.

    This is great ammo. The federal 158gr I shoot and reload it and the +p rating is good in both. Load federal brass with speer 158gr lswchp bullets to +p setting you can't go wrong.

    This particular .38 SPECIAL+P Loading is simply the best overall choice for the 2" - 4" [ +P rated ] barrel revolvers, IMHO. Speer's Product # 53921 offers pretty much all the required attributes of an all around / multi-season self defense Loading. [ NOTE: # 53921 = 50 rd Box - & - # 23921 = 20 rd Box ] It combines acceptable penetration, expansion, velocity, accuracy, & standard deviation. Also, being a type of 'bonded' projectile is another big plus, as it doesn't have a traditional 'jacket', as a great many of its genre do. Therefore, there's jacket to rupture or fragment which reduces penetration, amongst other issues. And, weighing in at 135 grains, it will / should also shoot much closer the factory sights, as opposed to a lighter projectile. Yes Folks, the current market of .38 SPL. CCW type Loads is truly overwhelming. However, with all the available choices out there, I have always relied upon this particular Speer Load, for both my 2" & 4" . 38 SPL.+P rated revolvers.

    FWIW, This particular .38 SPL+P Loading appears to excellent as an 'summer season' choice. It exhibit exceptional expansion, although it's penetration does appear to be somewhat lacking with an average of approximately 12.5". If chosen for very 'lightly clad' targets, it does represent an viable choice, IMHO.
