When it was originally created in 1898, the .38 special was thought to be a round that would be quickly forgotten. However, as time would tell it, the round is now one of the highest-manufactured rounds on the market. This could be for it’s extremely low recoil rate and ease of shooting for new shooters. Originally loaded with about 21 grams of black powder, the .38 special was considered an improvement over the .38 long colt.

Contrary to its name, the .38 special round Is actually .357 inches long (the .38 refers to the diameter of the loaded casing.) Early on, it was mainly military personnel who were issued .38 specials. However, it wasn’t long before police departments began making them standard issue as well. It was expected that, as new technology would be developed, the .38 special would become a thing of history.

Perhaps the only reason it is still manufactured today is because of the development of the .357 magnum in the 1930s. Simply, to create the .357 magnum, the developers lengthened the case of the .38. This made it possible to also chamber .38 special rounds in a .357 magnum. Many lovers of the .357 magnum today shoot it for this reason alone. This ensures the .38 special will be around for many more years to come.

Each box contains 1,000+ once fired brass shell casings with a nickel finish. This is once fired, unprocessed brass sourced from commercial shooting ranges. It has not been cleaned or resized and still contains the spent primer. This brass contains different manufacturer's headstamps. It is recommended that all brass be inspected prior to being reloaded.

Great brass.  Had some pieces that couldn't be used but there was more than enough extras to still have a 1000 pieces.
