Is .38 Special Obsolete? .38 spl Black Hills 125gr +P JHP Gel Test

 1065 Views
In General

38 Special is slow and small and it tends not to expand reliably, especially when fired from short barrels. We shoot Black Hills 125gr +P JHP from a Smith & Wesson Model 638 into clear ballistics clear gel to assess penetration, expansion, and retained weight.
