The Air Force still used the .38 revolvers till the late 80's, early 90's. They probably still use them to some degree. DoD is not the only Federal entity purchasing ammo for overseas. The State Department buys 10's of thousands of rounds of ammo to supply emerging nations like Afganistan.

In addition!

Being they are the same price range.
Lead can foul the rifling's a lot faster and harder to clean the bore. I would far prefer jacketed bullets either FMJs or HPs.

They were S&W model 15 "Combat Masterpiece."

Note: These were .38 special, not .38 Long Colt.

In addition to flight crews (they can fire tracer- YES- .38 Spl tracer) to aid in locating downed crewman- revolvers still have limited use by MPs. (plain clothes, investigators, etc) At one time, folks sitting in the missle silos also carried a revolver.
