  1. Pamela (verified owner)

    Shot 70 rounds through my Kimber K6s 2 inch barrel revolver. The indoor range requires the copper plating. Previously I used 148 gr. wadcutters, copperplated but the nose was slightly higher and very smooth. These did now load as smoothly using my Kimber speed loader. Not sure why. Reloaded 12 times with the speedloader and each time was a little tricky to release into the chambers. Pickup into the speedloader from the dock worked well. Also cost variable. When my local Ammo store provides this I save 4 cents per round plus the shipping since I pickup at the factory. It also had more pressure that I liked in the locally provided ammo. Again both were supposed to be 148 gr wc, copper plated. Accuracy was the same as the local ammo but I tired faster during practice due to more recoil.

    Really nice ammo. Very accurate and clean

  3. Mark M. (verified owner)

    Great ammo, reasonably priced with great customer service

  4. Eddy Riveiro (verified owner)

    Great target ammo, a good deal “warmer” than the Fiocchi 148 wadcutters that I have shot in the past. Defintely going to buy these again, as I go through them during a typical range session, like a kid eating candy!

  5. Kirk Smith (verified owner)

    Great personal defense load, will buy more.

  6. Ken (verified owner)

    Service was great. Delivered soon and in good order! Maybe try an unmarked outer box so people don’t know it’s ammo.

  7. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Great service! Fast delivery.

  8. Robert S. (verified owner)

    Good ammunition and glad to get it. Ammo is difficult to find in retail stores and local firearms stores

  9. Bryan G. (verified owner)

    Awesome ammo, shot it through a Taurus 65 and model 10 s&w. Accurate and reliable, will be buying some more.

    Very good customer service and quality product. Wish a better handle could be had on availability of certain calibers but are aware COVID has created many uncharted waters.

  15. Constance Y. (verified owner)

    Very fast shipping!

  16. William Keller (verified owner)

    Waited awhile to get this. It was worth the wait. I shoot this from a Ruger SP101. It is good reliable ammo. The shipping was very fast. This is my 3rd order and I am glad to have found Precision OneAmmunition.

  17. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Efficient, accurate, and prompt service; the .38 special ammo cost (when purchased) was not crazy expensive like other sites. Overall a very good experience.

  18. glenn t. (verified owner)

    Gr8 ammo. Make more

  19. Alfredo Ibanez (verified owner)

    Will order this ammunition agin great ammo

  20. Raymond P. (verified owner)

    As always, the quality of the Precision One ammunition I ordered seems to be excellent. I have not had an opportunity to fire any of my .38 Special copper plated wadcutters, but outward appearance leads me to believe that I will not be disappointed. The “4” rating is not about the product, but some of the hoops that Precision One forces me, as a former customer to jump through. I absolutely despise having to “log in”, remember some “strong” password, and similar garbage, to order from anyone. Why can I not simply enter my name, address, card info, and purchase as a “guest”? I had been watching for this particular product to appear, based on notices on the site, for a few days. I finally noted its availability on a Saturday. Trying to get my order in as soon as possible, given that I have seen new supplies of ammo literally evaporate in minutes on some sites, I was hassled by the order algorithm to enter a password (which I had forgotten since the last time). I had to go through the process of setting up a new password, wasting valuable time. While I did get my order in before the supply dried up, I would implore Precision One to at a minimum, offer a “checkout as guest” option for its customers.

    These 148 GR wadcutters were very accurate in my Manurhin MR38.

  35. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Price much more reasonable than other places. Only 4 because everyone’s prices during shortage are still too high. Ordering experience good, shipping time good.

    It’s great to see smaller makers are able to have some ammo available. Still kinda pricey as compared to a couple years ago, but that’s how it is now. Good quality, recommended, ammo from Precision One.

    The Best I you can find at any price.

  48. David T. (verified owner)

    Happy to own a S&W model 52-2,
    this ammo works in that rather nice handgun. I only shot 10 rounds at close range to check for function, if a little works in that gun a lot will, it gave a ragged one hole group.
    I am very happy with this product ☺

  49. Johnathan (verified owner)

    fast shipping!

    Excellent carry/target ammo for my Taurus 856

  53. Thomas A. (verified owner)

    I’m heading out to fire off some of these rounds. They are very clean looking.

  54. Christian L. (verified owner)

    I really like the advantage of the copper jacketed wadcutters. No leading and in my opinion a good snub nosed self defense round with good recoil control and effective penetration.

  55. Stanley (verified owner)

    Quick and easy ordering and delivery to ammo vendor in California. Excellent service. The wadcutter ammo is copper plated.

  56. Forrest (verified owner)

    Rapid, concise, quality service and products!

  57. Ed W. (verified owner)

    I don’t normally leave reviews, but I think it’s important to acknowledge a job well done. I’ve ordered several times and Precision1Ammo has never let me down. The quality has been exceptional, ordering is easy, and they have never failed to keep me aware of delivery issues or tracking info. Great job P1A Team!
    Keep America strong, support your local vendors!

  63. Charles (verified owner)

    Shoots fine to point of aim in every revolver that I have.

    Recoil feels like typical 38 special ammo.

    The delivery was on my doorstep in 48 Hours from placing the order.

  64. John M. (verified owner)

    Excellent ammo. As expected. High quality…fair price…like all P1 ammo. Very satisfied. And no waiting.

  66. John M. (verified owner)

    This is my second purchase of the .38 Special Wadcutters from P1. Shipping is fast and product is great quality.

    This ammunition cycles flawlessly through my 1975 John Giles .38 Special conversion 1911 .38 Super Bullseye Gun.

  67. Randy T. (verified owner)

    Great company to use. Highly recommend. They answered questions for me before I placed an order. Excellent customer service.

  78. Anonymous (verified owner)

    I was quite pleased with how quickly I received these.

  79. James P. (verified owner)

    Shipping was fast and the wadcutters were very accurate. I will continue to purchase 38 spl wadcutters from PONe. Price was also below the few other sources.

  80. Fred Rivers (verified owner)

    Although I haven’t fired this ammo from my new air weight snubbie yet, it looks fine & shipped on time. I’m sure it will perform as well as my previous purchases of 380 & 357 have.

  82. Paul C. (verified owner)

    Delivery to my door was blazing fast, this wadcutter ammo is fantastic, a little hotter than other brands but it is great. Going to use it at the range and as carry ammo.

  83. David (verified owner)

    Great price on hard to find wadcutters. Ammo shoots great. Quick shipping.

  84. james tishuck (verified owner)

    product is good, but price is high

  85. David Barry (verified owner)

    I received my 250-round box of CPWC fairly quickly. I have not shot them yet; however, I plan to in the next couple of days. I played around with putting these rounds in my speed loaders (for three different revolvers). They were not at all difficult to load into the cylinders quickly. I carry lead wadcutters as my initial defense load and these CPWC will now be my reloads in my carry speedloaders. These are much easier to reload than lead wadcutters. They seat just above the rim of the brass case and the smoothness of the copper plating allows them to seat easily into the cylinder for reloading. I like ’em.

  86. Mark M. (verified owner)

    Fast shipping and a great product. Repeat customer.

  87. Michael (verified owner)

    Thank you

  88. Fred R. (verified owner)

    I have ordered from Precision One several times. Good company, good ammo. With tax and shipping, a 250 count box of 38 wad cutters came to $214.51
    ( .85 per round ). That stings a little for practice ammo. Sign of the times I guess.

  89. james hiller (verified owner)

    This is my carry round in my S&W 340PD. Shoots to POA, has manageable recoil and doesn’t lead the barrel.Precision ONe is the best.

  98. Stephen (verified owner)

    My club range does not allow FMJ rounds, so I Really Like the fact the wadcutters are Copper Plated.
    The price is very competitive, especially in the 250 round mega-pack.
    Purchasing directly from the manufacturer.
    Delivery was prompt.
    Customer service is Great!

    Good price compared to others. Fast delivery. Shoots great. Pretty soft shooting, a little hotter than other wadcutters. Very accurate. I carry it in a 642 for self defense.

    Excellent product and service

  103. ALBIN WOOD (verified owner)

    Great hard to find ammo!

  104. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Case was nice but not for me. I prefer 10 boxes of 50 rounds. That is much easier for me to carry.

  105. Paul C. (verified owner)

    Probably the best ammo out there, cheap enough I can practice, practice, and practice. It’s great as self defense ammo, most 38 sp hollow points don’t expand anyway, big plus is copper plating which eliminates lead fouling.

  106. John (verified owner)

    Great product

  107. Joseph Hutson (verified owner)

    This ammunition is fantastic. It burns clean, with low muzzle flash and no recoil. Shoots accurately to point of aim out my Taurus 856 2 inch and my Smith model 60 3 inch. Penetrates DEEP on gel, water jug, and pork rib tests. Reliable. Excellent quality. Have bought several 1000 rounds of this and will buy more in the future for carry and for practice. A hidden gem.

  108. Ajosephus (verified owner)

    Have bought and shot nearly 500 rounds of the cpwc’s. Good experience except I did come up with a couple of squib loads.

  109. Acid Snow (verified owner)

    I bought 500rds of these .38 Special wadcutter cartridges, because I had never shot wadcutter before! …It’s pretty neat, glad I tried it out. I mainly bought it because it’s copper plated, as I avoid ammo with exposed lead for long term storage.

    This ammo is a bit less powerful than my .380 ACP ammo, which I don’t mind, because it’s really just a “for fun” cartridge. Plus, lets not forget that the .38 Special cartridge is from ~1870, which means it was originally a black powder cartridge. I’m going to stick with this as my revolver ammo, I like it!

  110. William Law (verified owner)

    Top quality product at a good price and fast service.

  111. Verified Buyer (verified owner)

    Oversold inventory. I was contacted immediately. Communication on when my order/inventory was shipped exceeded my expectations. I will be buying from again. Excellent customer service.

  112. Jeffery F. (verified owner)

    As usual, great products, service and price. What more could you want.

  113. Verified Buyer (verified owner)

    Looks good, came in great condition, arrived fast. The bunker box was unexpected, and nice!

  114. Verified Buyer (verified owner)

    Accuate, burns clean. The copper plating eliminates leading in the barrel. Shoots slightly high in my S&W 638 J-frame snub nose revolver – a 6 o’clock sight picture works well. Good ammo for practice and for defense in short barrel snubs.

  115. Fred W. (verified owner)

    Excellent ammo for .38, cpwc gets the job done.
