200 Rounds of 120gr JHP .38 Spl +P Ammo by Federal For Sale
A devastating blow! In the magnificent state of Minnesota, Federal loads their Punch series 38 Special +P ammo so that any civilian can provide the level of heat necessary to eliminate the threat!
The hotter propellant charge in a +P cartridge will result in increased recoil. Additionally, it will produce greater pressure than a traditional 38 Special revolver is made to withstand. However, you will value the flatter trajectory and harder impacting energy of the overpressure cartridge if your handgun is rated for +P (or chambered for 357 Magnum). The 120 grain bullet in this cartridge retains 240 ft pounds of energy at 25 yards after passing through a 4″ barrel at 1,000 fps, which is still enough for defensive purposes.
The jacketed hollow point of this round is not designed to reliably expand after passing through a barrier that is harder than heavy clothes, nor does it have a bonded jacket. The device’s aggressively notched gilding metal jacket, which protects its soft lead core, ruptures to allow for rapid terminal growth within soft tissue.
Each Punch label cartridge is finished by Federal with a reloadable brass case, a sealed and noncorrosive Boxer primer, and clean-burning powder. Although this ammunition is advertised for personal defence, you may also use a lever-action rifle to hunt small game with it!
