38 Special

38 Special was the standard service cartridge for a majority of United States police departments from the 1920s to the 1990s. It was also a common sidearm cartridge used by United States military personnel in World War I, World War II, the Korean War and the Vietnam War. 38 Special was designed in 1898 an improvement over the .38 Long Colt which was found to have inadequate stopping power during the Philippine-American War. Originally the 38 special was loaded with black powder, however after the popularity of the cartridge increased it was produced with smokeless.
