Old Faithful Made Even More Faithful
Developed in 1902, the 38 Special is one of the best known and longest surviving ammunition types. Some consider a 38 to be the perfect caliber for personal protection, with many people preferring it over the 9mm.
Our 38s are precisely and meticulously engineered. Our entire business hinges on your gun firing when you pull the trigger. So we over-engineer and constantly tweak and test everything we do. Our goal is that if you do your job when you pull the trigger, you’ll know we’ve done ours.
With our 38 Special rounds we use custom-milled casings that are created from only the highest-grade brass. These are engineered to our exacting specifications and each batch is put through the most stringent testing in the industry. We test for accuracy and reliability, and if a round fails, the entire batch is rejected and we start over.
We simply do not approve anything that won’t deliver every time you pull the trigger.
And it’s not only the casings that are held to such high standards.
We use Hodgdon powder, which gives increased accuracy and reliability to each round because of its precise burn characteristics. Hodgdon is the cleanest and most even burning powder available, and that gives it astounding accuracy and reliability.
Even better, that clean burn results in less gunk in your gun. And that means less cleaning for you, and less wear and tear in general. Giving you a gun that performs better and does what you need it to do more reliably.
And we’ve paid the same attention to detail to the actual bullets, too
The engineering process begins by extruding lead billet until it becomes wire. We then use a swage tool to turn the bullet into a core. The core is copper plated, and then restruck. The result of that is a bullet that’s more precise, and smoother. This gives you a better looking bullet, and one that’s more accurate and more consistent because of improved aerodynamics.
