Federal AE38B .38 Special ammunition is a product from the Federal Cartridge Company's "American Eagle" line of ammunition. The American Eagle line is marketed as an economy load suitable for precision practice as well as a range of other shooting applications, including various training exercises. Developed specifically for high-volume shooters and priced accordingly, American Eagle ammunition offers positive performance and uncanny accuracy on par with Federal's more expensive brands. And like all Federal ammunition, Federal AE38B .38 Special ammunition is manufactured at the Lake City Army Ammunition Plant (LCAAP) in Independence, Missouri, which is an interesting aspect of the ammunition in itself. LCAAP is a government-owned, contractor-operated munitions facility that was originally established in 1941 for the manufacture and testing of small arms ammunition for the U.S. Army. Since 2001, it has been operated by Alliant Techsystems and is the largest manufacturer of small arms ammunition for the U.S. Army.
That said each box of Federal AE38B .38 Special ammunition contains 50 non-corrosive, brass-cased cartridges. Each cartridge contains a 158 gr lead round nose projectile, which provides for stable external ballistics, deep penetration and increased muzzle velocities. In fact, this load is capable of producing muzzle velocities that have been observed to travel at speed of up to 770 fps.
