This is 50 rounds of custom-quality Excel Elite handgun ammunition from Littlestone Ammunition for your .38 Special revolver featuring the Cast Performance Wide Flat Nose Plain Base bullet.
Cast Performance bullets are lead bullets molded from Lead Bullet Technology (LBT) style molds. They are cast from virgin alloy and hardened to a Brinell Hardness of 18-21. They penetrate deeply and do not fragment on bone. LBT style heat-treated solids are rapidly becoming the standard by which all others compare handgun-hunting bullets. This design of bullet does not depend on expansion as do soft point and hollow point bullets, but in fact the performance level achieved by the LBT design is far superior to conventional bullets. In high velocity loadings, the degree of penetration reported by some of our customers with these bullets is truly remarkable, including full-length passage from end to end on some larger hogs. They dont lead the bore and have been driven as fast as 3,100 fps without causing leading. We offer the Gas Checked version of Cast Performance bullets for higher velocity loadings to prevent barrel leading, but for the conventional .38 Special a gas check is unnecessary. Therefore, this loading uses a plain base bullet.
Because of Littlestone Ammunition's tight manufacturing tolerances, it performs consistently and therefore typically is quite accurate. But regardless of any ammos quality, handguns can be finicky, and you must have ammo that:
shoots accurate, tight groups from your gun
your gun digests reliably
shoots to point of aim
and has tolerable recoil helping you get back on target quickly
Finding that load can be expensive if you have to buy a full box of 20 or 50 rounds for every type you want to try. Which is why we developed our sample pack system. With one purchase of 20 or 50 rounds, you can test either four or five different loads, helping you find ammo that meets all your needs much more economically.
Each of our sample packs comes complete with the written load number record of each load in the pack, and a color-coded test-fire evaluation form. So you might consider testing one or more of our sample packs containing this bullet, which can be found in a variety of the Sample Pack product listings for this cartridge.
After you test one or more sample packs, if you and your gun like the load, come back and purchase it in greater quantities. Of course, if you prefer, use the Add To Cart button above to purchase this 50 rounds of Littlestone Ammunition now.
