Hello, the .38 Special Short is a compromise cartridge made by CBC that can be used without problems in most .38 Special, .38 Short Colt and .38 S&W revolvers.

As a curiosity, at one given time this Brazilian company also manufactured a cartridge headstamped “38 Sh Colt”, but its measurements were indentical to this .38 Spl. Short. Also, in the late 90’s they introduced a proper .38 S&W cartridge, but continued to offer the .38 Spl. Short.
