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.
