the 38 Smith and wesson is a very old cartridge that was originaly desined for black powder the rim thickness is a little less than the 38 special and the case overall length is much less. The 38 special I believe was next step in this cartridge, then they bumbed it up again to the 357 mag. If your barrel is marked 38 spl just stick with that. Better yet Does thre range you shot at sell ammo if so take it with you and get the ammo there the first time. Or if possible take it to the shop were you plan to get the ammo. One Last thought if you are new to shooting Welome to a great Hobby. It is fun but can be dangerous so look into some training before going off on your own. Good luck and enjoy
