Whats the difference between these two

Is there any advantage a JHC has against a JHP?

SRK97 03-06-2013 02:24 PM

I just found two boxes of them behind everything else, they must be fairly old at 10.99$ per box.

It looks like you inherited these boxes of ammo. The price sticker is a dead give away that these boxes are older.

From the looks of the boxes the green Sierras on the left are probably .357 mag., because of the height of the box. The box of Hornadys on right is probably .38 spec. Check the head stamping on the cases around the primer to be certain.

I don't know your level of knowledge, but do not load the .357 mag. into a firearm that is labeled and designed for .38 spl. ammo solely.

JHP = Jacketed Hollow Point

JHC = Jacketed hollow Core, which is much like the Hornady Guard Dog ammo. Think of it as a JHP encased in a Full Metal Jacket.

Go to www.sierrabullets.com and lookup the "Sport Master" bullets for an explanation.

They are .38 cal bullets, I think I'm going to reload them but first I have to find a recipe for a 170 grain bullet.

Go to sierra web site and you can find loads for 170 grainers

Jacketed Hollow Cavity is Sierra's designation for JHP. They;re not full jacketed.

Would that be considered a good thing or a bad thing. Do you thing a heavy bullet would shoot ok in a Ruger SP-101 with a 2.25in barrel I'm not sure what the twist rate is

Two boxes of PROJECTILES...

Pictured are two boxes of PROJECTILES--For loading in .38Spl. OR .357Mag. cases--NOT loaded ammo.

You will find the heavier load data in the .357Mag. section.

Most all .38Spl. or .357Mag. revolvers are sighted to fire 158gr. bullets to the correct Point of Impact...Bill.;)

Only handguns lacking adjustable sights are zeroed "maybe" for one weight of bullet. But what about the velocity of that load.:confused:
