Product Description

An inert .38 Smith & Wesson bullet is a replica or dummy cartridge designed to mimic the appearance of a live .38 S&W round without containing any active primer, gunpowder, or projectile. Here's a breakdown:


  • An inert .38 S&W bullet is a non-functional cartridge used primarily for training, display, educational purposes, or as a prop in movies and theater productions.
  • It closely resembles a live .38 Special cartridge but lacks the components necessary for firing.


  • The inert .38 S&W bullet typically consists of a cartridge case, primer pocket, and bullet. However, these components are inert and non-functional.
  • The cartridge case is often made of brass or another material commonly used for live ammunition.
  • The primer pocket may appear to contain a primer, but it is typically sealed or empty.
  • The bullet is usually a solid piece of metal or plastic and does not contain any gunpowder or propellant.


  • Inert .38 S&W bullets serve various purposes, including firearm safety training, firearm familiarization, classroom instruction, and collector's items.
  • These replicas allow individuals to handle and manipulate cartridges without the risk associated with live ammunition.
  • They are also used by firearm enthusiasts, historians, and collectors for display purposes or as part of historical reenactments.

Safety Considerations:

  • While inert .38 S&W  bullets are not capable of being fired, it's essential to handle them with care and follow proper safety procedures.
  • Treating inert cartridges as if they were live rounds helps maintain safe handling practices and prevents accidents.
  • It's crucial to store inert cartridges separately from live ammunition and firearms to prevent confusion and accidental use.
