Gun Descriptions

About The .32 Short Colt Ammo, also known as the .38 SC Ammo, was a heeled bullet cartridge primarily intended for metallic bullet conversion of the cap and ball Colt Navy Revolver 1851 from the era of the American Civil War. Later, the .32 Short Colt Ammo was fitted with a 9.1mm diameter which was lubricated from the inside in the 125-135-grain bullet variant ranges. Visually, the .32 Short Colt Ammo closely resembles .38 S&W Ammo, but the case diameters are a bit different. The case parent used to design the .38 Long Colt Ammo, and the .38 Special Ammo was the .32 Short Colt Ammo. The lightest, 129-grain bullet variant of the .32 Short Colt Ammo can travel at a velocity of 777 feet per second while creating an energy level of 181 ft.lbf. Manufacturer The .32 Short Colt Ammo was designed and manufactured into the markets by Colt's Manufacturing LLC in the Early 1870s. Uses The .32 Short Colt Ammo was widely used in guns chambered for .38 Special Ammo and .357 Magnum Ammo. This bullet was used in hunting small games in medium to short ranges.

About The .380 ACP Ammo is a rimless, straight walled cartridge designed for pistols introduced in the year of 1908. Ever since it was released into the market, it has been very popular in the self-defense department and has been widely used in numerous handguns. The .380 ACP Ammo is considered a misnomer since it doesn't strictly conform to cartridge naming conventions that are named against the bullet's diameter. Using the standard naming process, the .380 ACP Ammo should be named .355 ACP Ammo since it uses a cartridge .355 in diameter. The .380 ACP Ammo, because of its low blow-thrust, delivered a soft recoil to the shooter. The overall length of the .380 ACP Ammo is 25mm, while the bullet diameter measures 9mm. The 45-grain variant of the .380 ACP Ammo can travel at a velocity of 1,835 feet per second while creating an energy level of 337 ft.lbf.  Manufacturer John Browning designed the .380 ACP Ammo in 1908, and Colt's Manufacturing Company manufactured it in the same year.  Uses The .380 ACP Ammo has experienced a wide array of uses over the years. At least FIVE European nations picked it up as their standard pistol ammo before World War II. The .380 ACP Ammo is light and compact and delivers a short-ranged shot, creating less stopping power. The .380 ACP Ammo remains a popular cartridge for self-defense purposes.
