Magtech - Lead Flat Nose - 158 Grain 38 Special Ammo - 50 Rounds


Developed and then introduced in 1898, Smith & Wesson’s improvement upon the .38 Colt was inspired by lackluster reports of the Colt’s performance in the Philippines. While the Special certainly was not billed as a “manstopper” its effectiveness led it to become a dominant law enforcement round and immensely popular with civilian shooters for its easy recoil, accuracy and reliability. Shooters of the .357 magnum like the .38 Special as a cost effective training and introductory round to their firearms. And while not “period,” or authentic to the genre, single action shooter enthusiasts have also accepted the round for its well established merits. The 158 lead flat nosed bullet by Magtech exits the muzzle at a recorded 800 feet per second with 2250 foot pounds of energy. While not ideal for personal defense, the round is very well suited for target and range shooting – the flat nose makes visibly crisp hles in paper - along with being perfectly suited for cowboy action competitions.

Since 1990, Magtech has produced a broadening line of range and training ammunition as well as purpose specific defense rounds. Prized for reliability and economy, the company makes its products with reloadable cases for additional value to those who reload this very versatile caliber.
