Doubletap makes the 38 Special perform to its fullest potential with this load. Designed from the ground up as a concealed carry/ home defense load with flash suppressed powder that produces virtually no muzzle flash. In testing the bonded core bullet penetrated 4 layers of heavy denim and 2 layers of cotton and penetrated 12.25 inches in ballistic gel while expanding to .652". The bonded bullet offers a great balance of penetration and expansion offering great stopping power without over penetration.
