38 Special Target/Practice
We currently offer 3 projectile types on this classic revolver round.
The 125g THP (Target Hollow Point) is a lighter-grain round designed for target shooting. This is a longer bullet that makes slightly more contact with the rifling in your barrel, stabilizing it for a more accurate shot.
The flat bullet profile of the 148g WC (Wad Cutter) makes it an excellent choice for target practice and competition. The overall length on this cartridge allows for use in a semi-automatic.
The 158g FN is certainly the most widely used grain for this caliber. It is a plated flat nosed projectile, ideal for practice and training.
Brass: Remanufactured or New (choose below)

Defender ammo makes a difference
As a relatively new (more serious) shooter, I recently joined a gun club, I was very frustrated with myself. My grouping was not as consistent as most of the other members. Tips and advice from members helped, but something just didn't feel right. Running low on ammo, I was price shopping "on line" and came across the Defender Website. Their prices were very reasonable, their story about everyone being ex military or a family member impressed me as well, I said to myself let's give them a try, so I placed an order. The club has weekly matches and for ease of scoring everyone's target, *** cutters are the required ammo. I was using someone else's *** cutters and didn't think that there would be a difference; then i used DEFENDER. OMG!!! What a difference. Every shot was so much more consistent, as my photos show. Picture 1 (far left) was the other ammo. Pictures 2 and 3 , Defender ammo was used. Since my first purchase from Defender, I've shot almost 900 rounds. As the pictures show, my grouping and accuracy have greatly improved. I used their 38 Special Target/Practice 148G WC ammo. Very reasonably priced, accuracy and consistency, phenomenal. Customer Service, I'm sorry to say, they were not good, they were OUTSTANDING. Team Defender; thank you for your service to those that served or their families and thank you for your patriotism. Finally, thank you for providing a great American product!!! "I found my ammo supplier"
