38 Special +P 125 Grain XTP Jacketed Hollow Point

0.60 LBS

Product Description

Underwood Ammo’s XTP rounds are notable for their power and accuracy. We utilize Hornady’s eXtreme Terminal Performance (XTP) bullets which are designed for deep terminal penetration, great accuracy and controlled expansion. We combine Hornady’s unparalleled XTP bullets with our own carefully formulated design which results in one lethal round.


Nickel plated casings with our new nickel plating process provides several key benefits, not limited to but including; improved feeding in all actions of firearms, enhanced corrosion resistance over traditional brass, improved cosmetics, and ease of cleanup during reloading.  Nickel plated casings will not tarnish like brass during storage or when in contact with foreign materials such as leather, moisture, and other metals.


Until the development of the Ducta-Bright 7a process, nickel plating casings often limited the number of reloads as compared to raw brass.  It was claimed that nickel plated brass casings “embrittled” the brass therefor making it less desirable for reloaders despite the ease of cleanup that nickel plating offers.  In addition, ammunition engineers raising concerns of using nickel plating in “very hot” +P or magnum loads found that traditional nickel plating often cracked deep-drawn cases, or worse, lead to a total failure. This new process eliminates any concern, to the shooter or reloader, of hazard or ability to re-use the brass.


As with all of Underwood Ammo’s rounds, we utilize flash suppressed powder so that your vision will not be compromised if it becomes necessary to use your firearm in low light.


While taking advantage of our state of the art testing equipment, this high performance ammunition is field tested using popular, real firearms that our customers are most likely to own out in the real world with all the elements you would experience. If for some reason Underwood Ammunition fails to meet performance expectations, we stand by our product 100% and will make sure the customer is satisfied with every purchase.

This ammunition is new production, non-corrosive, in boxer primed, reloadable brass cases.

  1. Awesome ammo!!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Dec 2016

    Shot a whitetail from 15 paces with this load out of a Ruger LCRX with the 1.875 inch barrel. The deer ran 15 paces and dropped. The bullet penetrated all the way to the hind quarters and was fully expanded!

  2. Extremely Accurate Rounds 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Dec 2014

    You can tell by the uniformity of the crimp and seating depth on all of these rounds that quality control is paramount with Underwood. These rounds were extremely accurate in my S&W 686 revolver at the 30 foot line. They really impressed me at 50 yards on sandbags with open sights from my Rossi .357 lever action carbine. That rifle had never been fired before. After a warmup period firing about 30 rounds of 158 grain lead semi wadcutter rounds and a handful of .357 158 grain jacketed soft points to scrub the barrel out a bit, I loaded up these 125 grain +P 38 SPCL rounds. They were all spot on, the first tube mag full of 8 rounds all went into a single ragged hole a bit smaller than a golfball. Next range trip I hope to try the Underwood 125 grain .357 mag rounds that I have. Good stuff, definitely packs more punch compared to other 38 SPCL rounds that I have fired.
