.38 Spl. Winchester 110-grain Silver Tip (2- and 4-inch barrels)

posted on October 26, 2010

The recovered 110-grain Winchester Silver Tip bullets were rather mangled. Essentially the forward portion of the bullet's jacket that surrounds the hollow-point cavity peeled back to the point it was just barely connected to the bullet (When tested from the 2-inch gun.) and separated from the bullet (When tested from the 4-inch gun.) Penetration was on the shallow side of optimum but the gelatin showed that the bullets created wound cavities similar in size to comparable .38 Spl. loads.
