.38 Special 158 Grain “TPMJ” “Range Grade” Ammunition
This “range grade” ammunition is manufactured in the USA on high end arsenal grade machines and undergoes a loose visual inspection before packing. This ammunition is loaded using .358 diameter 158 grain “TPMJ” (Total Poly-metal Jacket) projectiles which are die cast/swaged, plated, and re-struck. TPMJ bullets have no exposed lead, thereby avoiding lead exposure upon firing and producing less gun fouling. The bullets are individually weight sorted and visually inspected to ensure the highest accuracy.
Only once-fired military and police brass is used in loading. This brass is acid washed, processed to SAAMI specifications, and electromagnetically inspected for thin walls and defects to ensure safe internal tolerances.
In the loading process, only the top quality powders and primers are used. Powder is dropped to +/- 0.1 grain accuracy to ensure the highest accuracy.
Velocity / Pressure: 860 FPS (SAAMI pressure)
What is “Range Grade Ammo”? This ammunition is visually inspected in bulk and packaged by weight. It differs from “FedArm” brand ammo in that it is not case gauged nor individually inspected by piece. A very small count of these rounds may deviate slightly from typical mil-spec specifications and may (or may not) contain slightly off-seated projectile or similar minor functional defects, all easily caught when loading your magazine. The inspection labor savings on these rounds is passed onto you! You will receive more rounds than ordered (as per the below) for the chance you find an unsatisfactory round.
Note: Range grade ammunition does not fall under the FedArm satisfaction guarantee & return policy. If you want piece counted mil-spec ammo, please buy the standard “FedArm” branded ammo instead.
This ammunition is available in:
- 500 rounds in a heavy duty shipper box. Weight count over-packing will put approximate received quantity of (505 to 510 rounds total).
- 1,000 rounds in a heavy duty shipper box. Weight count over-packing will put approximate received quantity of (1,005 to 1,015 rounds total).
