Special (SPL)

When it comes to firearms, special (SPL) indicates a unique type of cartridge, such as .38 Special or .44 Special. Pay close attention, as cartridges marked “special” are different from other rounds with the same numeric designation but a different suffix, such as .38 S&W or .44 Magnum.
