Fiocchi Ammunition 158 Grain Jacketed Hollow-Point (JHP) Ammo Details

This .38 Special ammunition from Fiocchi can be used for short-range hunting, target shooting, and self-defense. Each cartridge in this 50-round box fires a 158 grain jacketed hollow point bullet at 850 fps, producing good accuracy and relatively low recoil. The flat nose of the hollow point projectile lends itself well to target shooting, as it acts like a semi-wadcutter; it also feeds safely in the tubular magazines of lever-action rifles. Fiocchi ammo is loaded in both the US and Italy and uses non-corrosive Boxer primers and brass cases.
