38 Special/357 Mag Reloading Center

38 Special and 357 Magnum Ammunition Reloading Supplies

The 38 caliber ammunition is a rimmed revolver case dating back to the late 1800s. Currently the most common of those are the 38 Special, and the 357 Magnum. Occasionally you will hear the 38 Special called a .38 S&W, however, those are not the same round and are not interchangable. Over the years, the 38 Special was well known as the sidearm of most US police forces, until superseded by the 9mm and 40.

The 38 Special and 357 Magnum share the same bullet, a .357 diameter and a .358 lead bullet diameter is not uncommon. Bullet weights vary from 100 grains up to 180 grains and are available in mostly copper although lead bullets are exteremly common. Another point to consider for readers, 'bullets' are projectile tips or bullet heads, they can't just be put into a gun and fired. They are one of the four required components necessary to make a 'live' cartridge (ammunition). So insure you are really shopping for what you expect the product to do, if you want 'ready to fire' then you are looking for 'ammo' or 'ammunition'.

Common 38 bullet heads/projectile tips are Round Nose (RN) and Hollow Points (HP), with many variations on each. For example, Berry's Bullets manufactures both a Target Hollow Point (THP) and a Hybrid Hollow Point (HHP)). Hornady manufactures an eXtreme Terminal Performance (XTP) and a Hornady Action Pistol (HAP). For self defense and small hunting, a Hollow Point bullet is preferable for expansion and knockdown. For plinkers, however, the 38 reloader should consider a plated bullet such as Berrys or a lead bullet which works well and gives you the best bang for your buck. Literally.

Cartridge - Live Ammunition

Slower burning powder works well with 38 bullets because of their low to medium velocity (900 - 1,200 fps). Tightgroup, CleanShot and CFE Pistol powders are just a few that reloaders use with these bullets. However, remember to ALWAYS follow your data guide and stay within the standards listed and under the SAAMI maximum pressures when reloading cartridges. Never seat the bullet head (projectile) deeper than recommended as that will increase the presures.

When shopping for 38 Special brass, Once Fired 38 Speical brass is a cheaper alternative to new brass, so should be considered it for 38 caliber reloads. If you are not an experienced reloader, you should read Once Fired Brass: The Beginners' Guide to Reloading. Overall Length (OAL) may vary slightly when doing 38 caliber bullet reloading. It's a good idea to load only a handful before safely checking them in your weapon. You don't want to be caught at the range with lots of pretty cartridges only to find out they won't chamber! Below are the items related to the 38 Special and 357 Magnum are shown below with the in stock items sorted to the top.
