Question:Do you know when you expect to have this back in stock?
Response:Hi Mark, same as with the Speer Gold Dot 357 Magnum ammo, 38 Special ammo is also backorder 3-4 weeks. Thank you for buying bulk ammunition at TargetSportsUSA.com
Question:The correct MFG item number for the short barrel version of this round is 23921. The boxes I received are item number 53921. Is this a discrepancy?
Response:Hi Michael, the 23921 is the 20 round box version of the Short Barrel 38 Special ammo, where as the 53921 is the 50 round per box version of the same ammo, notice the 2 for 20 and 5 for 50 rounds.

Question:I just purchased a s&w 686 with a 3” barrel. Would this ammunition work well for a 3” barrel? Is that considered a “short barrel? Or is this ammo made specifically for snub nose barrels that are around 1” long? Will it perform just as well from a 3” barrel???
Response:Good Morning Christopher, the short barrel ammo will work just fine in anything that is 1-3 inches in length. Thank you for buying ammo online at Target Sports USA
Question:Nowhere on the box does it say that it is designed for short barrels. Can I be sure this is designed for snub nose guns?
Response:Hi Christopher, for some reason CCI makes the "Short Barrel" notation on the case, however not on the individual boxes. Rest assured it is for short barrel firearms. Thank you for buying CCI Speer Gold Dot 38 Special ammo online at TargetSportsUSA.com
Question:My understanding is that this Speer Short Barrel Gold Dot .38 Spcl +P is rated at 860 FPS out of a 2" barrel, and not 1200 FPS as stated in your listing. Can you confirm this? 1200 FPS would be really high, even out of a long barrel, and I'm trying to make sure that this is a standard +P load suitable for a modern J-Frame Smith & Wesson, and not a souped-up +P+ round. Thanks in advance for this information.
Response:Hi Mark, We have updated and corrected the Velocity to 860 fps on this Speer Gold Dot LE Duty 38 Special Short Barrel Ammo 135 Grain +P Jacketed Hollow Point ammunition. Thank you for buying Speer 38 Special ammo at TargetSportsUSA.com
