    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.

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

    Aghh...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.
