38 SPL +P BUFFALO-BARNES LEAD FREE, Short-Barrel, Low-Flash

SKU: 20F/20

Qty: - +
   - OR -   

110 gr. BARNES TAC-XP @  1,125 fps
20 Round Box



For those wanting a deep penetrating all copper expanding 38SPL+P load, this is it. Depending on individual impact velocity, (barrel lengths and distance to target vary) you can expect between 12 to 14 inches of penetration in flesh and bone.

 Buffalo Bore was able to engineer a flash suppressed powder for this load and therefore the shooter will not be blinded by his own gunfire in low light. This creates a huge tactical advantage as most civilian shootings in the US occur in low light when the criminal element is out and about.

See the below real world velocities fired from real world revolvers, not extra long laboratory test barrels that give false extra high velocities, that cannot be duplicated in real life. With Buffalo Bore Ammunition, you’ll always get real world, usable velocities.

➤  1438 fps -- Ruger GP 100, 6-inch barrel
➤   1287 fps -- S&W Model 15, 4-inch barrel
➤  1210 fps -- S&W Model 66, 3-inch barrel
➤  1202 fps -- Ruger SP101, 3-inch barrel
➤  1149 fps -- S&W Model 66, 2.5-inch barrel
➤  1119 fps -- S&W Model 60, 2-inch barrel
➤  1104 fps -- S&W Model 340, 2-inch barrel

This load is safe to fire from all 38SPL +P rated and all/any 357 firearms that are in normal operating condition. However, when fired from super lightweight alloy J frame revolvers, recoil is stiff. This cartridge is designed so the bullet will not jump crimp when subjected to recoil from firing in super light 12 OZ revolvers, provided you do not subject any cartridge to the recoil of more than six or seven firings.

With great pleasure, we noted that every test gun delivered tiny little groups at 25 yards. It is normal when we observe good accuracy from most test guns and exceptional accuracy from some test guns with any load we are developing, but this load gave exceptional accuracy from every test gun. Most of our adjustable sighted test guns needed the rear sight raised as this high speed, lightweight bullet shot to a lower point of impact than normal loads our guns were already sighted in for, but the groups (accuracy potential) were very small, none-the-less.

Excellent ammo fired 5 rounds for test in my Smith and Wesson 38spl Bodyguard snub nose. This is one of my two summer time loads . Winter I use one of two other Buffalo Bore loads. Everything depends on the season time of day, travel, inside or outdoor for the potential need for use.
I do not mix ammo styles in my weapon anymore so I never have to wonder which should be my first, second etc order of fire.
Good stuff worth the price if you need to get the job done if need be!

From a Ruger sp101 2.25 in this round penetrated 15.5 inches and expanded to 58 cal. This was in a clear ballistics FBI spec block covered by a t shirt, sweatshirt and a layer of denim

Friends and Customers, 08-18-20


All shooters are being inconvenienced with what is happening to our society and the rush it is causing on ammo supplies. We have LOTS of ammo in stock and are making more at a huge volume on a daily basis. If our web site allows you to order any item, that means it is in stock—WE DO NOT TAKE ORDERS FOR ITEMS WE DO NOT HAVE! So, please do not email and ask if items are in stock. If they aren’t, the shopping cart will not take your order.

We have hundreds of customers to get orders to on a daily basis. In order for us to accomplish this for our customers, we ask the following.

  1. Be sure of what you are ordering. You are going to get what you ordered.

  2. Do not contact us and ask to change an order you’ve already placed. When we manually change orders it requires a lot of time that we do not have during this rush and it keeps us from serving all of our customers. If you’d like to change an order, we can no longer do that till things slow down, so simply place another order for more product, but PLEASE, NO MORE CHANGES after the fact!

  3. We NEVER have and never will take ammo exchanges or returns and then turn around and re-sale that ammo to unsuspecting customers as factory new ammo—this is not safe nor is it fair to customers who are buying what they think is new and safe ammo. No ammo is tamper proof! So please stop asking to exchange or get a refund for ammo you ordered, but have changed your mind about.

  4. Please do not contact us and ask for tracking numbers or “when will my ammo ship”? Our system automatically emails out tracking numbers on the orders we ship each day, however, because these emails are coming from a corporation shopping cart, many of these emails may go to your spam folder……..please look there. If it is not in your spam folder, that means we have not yet shipped. At current order rates, we are shipping within 5-7 business days of the time an internet order is placed. Please sit tight. Your ammo will arrive at the same time if you track it or not and will certainly arrive later if we are swamped answering questions instead of getting orders shipped. When 30-50 people per day send emails asking for tracking information and we have to pull that information up, then type it out and email it, it takes a huge portion of our work day that we should be using to ship those orders to customers in need. Please leave us alone so we can serve all of you. (ship to you) It’s a bit selfish, during times of shortages, when so many folks need to protect their families, to slow us down because you ordered carelessly or want to change your order. Right now, we expect you to do your part to help us all get the ammo we need in our troubled country.

These measures are hopefully temporary and will not be needed for long as we enjoy the interaction with our customers, so please, for the time being, be mindful of all those others who are also trying to get ammo during what I think is a societal meltdown/emergency. Hopefully, we can serve you all. We want you and your families to be armed and safe and we wish you the best during these trying times. My biggest concern is that things will worsen yet more, for a while. Until things straighten out in our government and society, we will have to streamline our customer service in order to serve all customers. Thank you for your understanding.

Good shooting and God bless,

Tim Sundles
