Hopkins and Allen 38 Cal.

I have a 38 Cal. Hopkins and Allen safety police pistol and need to know where I can get some ammo for this. The 38 shells I buy now wont fit because the casing are to long.

knuckles,

I know the ammo of which you speak. I was looking at a H&A .38 at the local shop and they showed me the ammo. I don't recall what it is called, but I can find out.

The ammo is available, at least at this shop in CT.

Good Luck,

Dillo

Assuming that it's not an old, old ".38 Rimfire," it would probably be chambered for .38 S&W (as opposed to today's garden variety ".38 S&W Special.") The projectile is, as I recollect, 0.361-inches instead of 0.357-inches, and ammo isn't too hard to come by… if that's what it is! Look something like this: 38 Cal. Hopkins and Allen safety police pistol?

Dean,

I do believe that you are correct & that (.38 S&W) is what I was trying to remember; as long as the revolver is a H&A Centerfire.

Thanks,

Dillo

Thanks for the info. The ammo I have is the 38 special so I'll try some 38's.
