Anniston, AL -( Ready for shipping now, Creedmoor Ammunition’s new .38 Special 125gr XTP +P is the perfect handgun round for hunting, self-defense, and law enforcement–and is even accurate enough for target shooting.

The XTP (Extreme Terminal Performance) bullet achieves controlled expansion thanks to precise serrations that divide the bullet into symmetrical sections, weakening the jacket at just the right points for maximum expansion, even at low velocities. At the same time, the solid core holds together and drives on through!

The +P velocity of the .38 Special 125gr XTP +P round drives the bullet faster and with more power, for those “extreme” situations.

I like the 38sp/357mag revolvers too. It’s old school and makes me feel young again. Colt .38sp.det. snubbie rev. was my first firearm in ’72. I never understood why people by a .38sp revolver though. Buy the .357mag rev.and be able to shoot both.

Being a staunch fan of both the .38 Special and .357 Magnum I couldn’t resist posting something in reply. Of course, the .38 Special 148 grain lead target wadcutter still can’t be beat for hunting small game: rabbit, squirrel, and grouse, dispatching vermin: raccoon, skunk, and possum, and even for butchering livestock. Obviously a .22 or .32 will likewise do the same. But for the person who has only a .38 caliber revolver on their person while engaged in camping, back packing, fishing, the outdoors, etc. the .38 Special wadcutter remains highly effective.
