Gel test Results
As you hunt for the best self-defense 38 Special ammo, we thought you might enjoy seeing the results of some testing we recently conducted with calibrated Clear Ballistics gelatin.
We shot five of these Winchester Ammunition rounds through a four-layer cloth barrier using a S&W 640. The results are detailed in the video you see above as well as the photographs. Through the charts, you should get a great idea how this Winchester Ammunition ammo stacked up relative to other 38 Special ammo products available to American shooters.

My order of 38 Special+P was handled efficiently and was at my doorstep in two days. I was very pleased because supplies of ammo from local retailers is negligible. The cartridges perform up to expectations and future needs will be addressed to Ammo To Go.
