When I first hired on as a cop (Mar 1974) I was issued 38 158 gn RN cast and loaded by jail trustees.
Right off the bat, I said no thanks and started loading my own cast bullets, 150 Gr SWC (Lyman Bullet 358477)
I shot everything from Moose, buffalo, horses, etc down to snakes with that bullet.
I also use it in practice and competition. I also carry it in my 642 pocket revolver. And its accurate in all my 38/357s. (Except my Smith Model 52 which requires flush WCs).
I know others like super +Ps of all kinds, but this bullet has worked great for me for almost 40 years, and I don't see any reason to change.
