38 vs 9mm

After consulting BBTI, I must respectfully disagree. Enjoyed the article very much, this is one of those questions I kick around all the time. 45. I’ve owned and carried both.

I own many of the top old and new pistols and revolvers, but my go to defensive carry pistol is a stock Sig P365 with two 12rd mags loaded with Federal HST 124gr standard velocity ammo. Unlike the other articles in the State Your Case series, I can’t really pick a “winner” on this one. You listed one of these guns in your article… the Ruger LCR. Sources: But do you need that penetration for self-defense in a handgun? 5.7 is still there waiting for you to get on board. Looking at the ammo itself presents a challenge as well. Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. At this point you might be wondering, if full wadcutter bullets are so much better for self-defense than other bullet designs, why isn’t everyone using them? I still like a good revolver due to some mechanical advantages. The.38/44 158-grain load was a bit more brisk, at about 1,100 fps, which is about 200 fps faster than modern 147-grain 9mm. 6″: 340-500 FP’s =/= 6″: 255-375 FP’s It has a lightweight and snag-free design, which has to be one of the most popular on the market. If we were to look at five-shot compact revolvers only — the only true place that 9mm and .38 intersect — we’d have to look at Ruger’s LCR series or the like and it would be a toss-up in that case. to compare them in a Glock 43 and Smith & Wesson 642 puts the 9mm at a small disadvantage and the 38SPL at a huge disadvantage.

Found a good backcountry load for the 38 LCR x 3″ I've fired both and can resonate with your breakdown of 2 very classic handguns. This led, a few years later, to the development of the .357 Magnum round. Nowadays, the Colt round is mostly used by variants of the 1911 platform and tends to be an option in custom shops. Even at their modest muzzle velocity of about 825 feet-per-second coming out of a snubnosed revolver, they are serious fight stoppers because they make a pretty huge hole (about twice the non-expanded bullet diameter) in human attackers. Both are irrelevant.

So, you can shoot heavier bullets in a.38 Special at higher velocities if you load it correctly and you have the right gun. I have the equivalent in .357 Magnum: 180 grain hardcast lead bullets with a muzzle velocity around 1250 feet per second. In the case of 9mm Luger, as it’s tapered, it tends to hit low on the feeding ramp which might lead to feeding ammunition. We’ll just say that the extra half inch accounts for any cylinder gap loss.
All in all, the feeding reliability of modern-day 9mm and .38 Super remain fairly reasonable for most of the time. Cool, I looked over the data you linked, and 9mm still beats .38 special with 9mm being the top performer for penetration, expansion, and velocity out of a 3.5″ barrel. Single action. 9mm vs. .40 S&W is a real discussion because the two offer very different things in a guns that are externally identical, like the G19/G23. It would have faded a long time ago if it was no longer effective. To have a winner, I would need to make it so that the cartridges have some real and discernible differences in a similar field. This is super simple to use, very accurate and can be carried easily. The 9mm Luger was designed by George Luger from his earlier 7.65X21mm Parabellum. A certain person can actually get more from it. And, this is mainly due to the type of guns that chamber it.

9 mm barrel.
