That's one of the nice things about the .38 Special. Tailoring the ammo to the job.

There have been many articles by the older writers where a hard cast bullet or a FMJ when used had penetration to spare. Even on game others would say use at least a .41 maggie or something bigger.

Not recommending anyone dump their magnums or attempt hunting dangerous game with a .38 Special. Far from it. Magnum-itis, excessive foot pounds of energy, and velocity speed demons can loose sight of the fact those are not always necessary to get the job done.

These all do have their place in the grand scheme of things. :)
