A patented process forms the hollow point cavity in two stages. The core is pre-fluted to define the "fault" lines of expansion, controlling final diameter and retained weight. The second process finishes the cavity and controls the rate of expansion. Select, clean burning propellants deliver optimum velocity while ensuring consistent chamber pressures. Non corrosive CCI primers are used for highly sensitive and reliable performance, as well as nickel plated brass cases for smooth feeding and durability. These technical features allow Speer's engineers to fine tune each specific caliber and bullet weight for maximum field performance.

This is an excellent .38 Special +P round IMO. Of course, this round has been designed to perform especially well in a short barreled gun, but I own an S&W revolver with a 4" barrel, and the Smith technical rep I spoke to recommended this GDSB for my gun. Out of a 4" barrel, the MV should be in the high 900s, plus a corresponding increase in ME. I like this round and the Remington .38 Special +P 158 gr. LSWCHP (R38S12).
