There are some things in life that are just meant to be. Beer should be cold. Engines should have 8 cylinders (motorcycle engines should be V-twins). And .38 Spl. ammunition should have 158-grain bullets.

HPR Ammunition now offers its take on this classic combination, a 158-grain, jacketed hollowpoint .38 Spl. round. It's not often that you open a box of ammo and think, "wow, that's some good lookin' ammo," but in this case that's exactly what happened. Typically ammunition is like motor oil: You don't think much about it until you get a bad batch and it fails to perform.

Given HPR's record, it is extremely unlikely that this ammunition will suffer that fate. Everything we've tested has been exemplary in function; it's hard to imagine ammunition for a sturdy wheelgun could be anything other than spot-on. Stay tuned for more analysis of this ammunition.

MSRP: $38.99.

There’s less training conducted with the defensive shotgun than with any other defensive firearm. This is partly because shotguns recoil the hardest, and recoil is not something shooters typically enjoy. It’s also partly because shotguns—at least compared with handguns and carbines—are a bit expensive to shoot, especially if you’re training with 00 buckshot.
