    38 S&W with a 200 Gr. lead bullet =38/200. A preferred British cambering. However because the 200 Gr soft lead bullet was deemed to be inhumane, the military load was a full metal jacket of , I believe 187 Gr's. or there abouts. The police still used the 38/200. it was OK to shoot bad guys with it but not the uniformed enemy. Regardless of which load was used it is common to refer to the cambering as 38/200

    Yep, .38 S&W. The British felt that a slow heavy bullet was adquate for a close range man stopper. In fact that same concept is still alive in the form of the .45 ACP
