The .38 spl. is an obsolete cartridge.
The .38 Special won't or can't do much anymore.
Ha Ha. The very last time someone got my goat did so by telling me a .308 and 30.06 weren't any good any more. That 'ain't' happing again.
Does anyone but me remember the day when empty .38 spl. brass was used for balast? Hope I didn't distract anyone from the OP. Sorry for any inconvenience.
