PolyCase Launches Inceptor® ARX® Ammunition in .38 Special


PolyCase Ammunition® today announced that Inceptor® ARX® Ammunition is now available in .38 Special. The first dedicated revolver caliber released in the Inceptor line, the .38 Special ARX joins the currently available 380 Auto, 9mm Luger, 40 S&W and 45 Auto calibers.


PolyCase Ammunition is currently exhibiting at SHOT Show 2016, and is exhibiting the Inceptor .38 Special ARX for the first time at the show. The Inceptor .38 Special ARX features a 77-grain projectile and a muzzle velocity of 1116 feet per second.


“Our loyal Inceptor customers have been asking for .38 Special since we first introduced the ARX projectile,” says Paul Lemke, PolyCase Ammunition CEO. “With the addition of .38 Special, we now offer the most popular semi-automatic handgun calibers in the world as well as the most widely used revolver cartridge.”


The new .38 Special version of Inceptor ARX Ammunition features the ARX projectile, developed by PolyCase Ammunition. The unique profile of the ARX bullet transfers energy to its target through a fluid dynamic effect. By design, the non-expanding ARX bullet exploits the bullet’s forward velocity to create a localized Venturi effect, whereby fluid matter is accelerated and ejected laterally via the flutes in the bullet ogive. The result is a bullet with stopping power and terminal performance that rivals many expanding handgun bullets.


“The .38 Special is something we are very excited about,” said Drew Gorman, PolyCase VP of Business Development. “Most .38 Special revolvers are small J-frames, intended for concealed carry. Our ultra low-recoil ARX round is designed to maximize the effectiveness of these pocket pistols by delivering impressive terminal performance with very manageable recoil.”


PolyCase Ammunition manufactures its ammunition products, including the new Inceptor .38 Special ARX, using patent-pending injection-molding technology. Inceptor ARX Ammunition is produced by PolyCase in the United States, and distributed domestically and internationally.
