.38 Smith & Wesson (.38 SW)
Developed by famous company Smith & Wesson, this revolver cartridge was introduced in 1877 and over the following decades it was widely popular for compact revolvers. During WW2, a ‘ball’ (FMJ) version of this round was issued to British troops as .380/200 revolver cartridge. A slightly different version of the same round was also known as the .38 Colt New Police. Today this round is mostly obsolete.
