Thanks for the link, Joe. I gotta start spending more time looking at reviews. My knowledge of self defense ammo is falling WAY behind the curve!

Dave, I generally do not fall in line and tout the current ammo du jour, but I was VERY impressed by this test. I've been shootin' the venerable FBI load of 158gr LSWCHP+P outta my S&W 642 and 2 1/2" 686+. After reading about this stuff designed specifically for short barrels, and seeing this test, I decided that I'm going to try it out. I know that many old pistoleros get comfortable with a load and shun change, but I'm willing to take advantage of technological advances and pass the info on if it appears to have merit.......

135gr Gold Dot +P is one of two .38spcl loads that pass FBI protocols. It's a good round.

The more of this stuff I shoot, the more I like it ! ! ! It' s superbly accurate and recoil in my 642 is VERY comfortable. I couldn't be more pleased........
