Jacketed Hollow Point (JHP).

It is a jacketed hollow point. If it is factory loaded +P it will say so on the headstamp. It will be stamped +P, along with the maker.

If it is handloaded, there is no way to tell what bullet and what velocities it was designed for.

They got it right, as far as I can see.

It looks very much like a Winchester 158 grain JHP to be exact.

Old-style jacketed hollowpoint. Just a very basic non-FMJ round, designed for revolver use only.

WALKAALONG it is stamped on the headAghh...I misread the huge type. ;)

Yep, looks like a typical old JHP in .38 Spl. Nope, not a "dum dum" or anything special.

I was thinking more along the lines of semi-jacketed hollow point... but i may have made that term up.

It's a semi-jacketed hollow point, or SJHP.

I vote for a JHP factory load probably a 110 or 125 gr. I don't remember if Federal has a bullet supplier or they roll there own.
