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.

Recent Hollow Point Reviews

    Great round very low recoil very accurate and four out of five of my rounds expanded
    Chris Williams on 25rds - 38 Special Hornady Critical Lite Defense 90gr. FTX Ammo
  • ☆☆☆☆☆
    I'm surprised by how well it did, honestly. The Hornady FTX bullets in most calibers have failed to impress me in the tests I've seen. I am astonished that four of the five bullets expanded at such low velocities. Penetration and weight retention are likewise really good for a .38 snubby load, especially one that's not even +P. Hornady's muzzle velocity claims are, as usual with their revolver ammo, totally out to lunch. 1200 feet per second? Really? Maybe from a lever-action rifle with a 24" barrel. From a 2" snub-nose revolver it looks more like right around 900. And this might be for the best, because if you pushed them any faster they might overexpand and fail to penetrate adequately, and, of course, there would be more recoil too. Expanding bullets that are ultra light for caliber tend to have that problem. I kind of wish Hornady would print the correct velocity on the box, though.

    My number one ammo is federal 130 grain HST 38 special p from micro guns if they don't have that I use 38 special p from federal on 20rds - 38 Special Federal Hydra-Shok 129gr. +P HP Ammo
  • ☆☆☆☆☆
    This is the only 38spl +p round i know that has consistent expansion every time. The soft lead 158gr gives deep penetration too. In my opinion it is the best self defense 38spl +p round on the market. It was also the FBI’s round for many years.
