Webleymkv - What is your take on the 125 grain Nyclad?
While it's better than most of the 110gr JHP's like Winchester Silvertip and Federal Hydra-Shok, its penetration is still a bit shallower than I'd prefer in the tests I've seen (usually about 10"). Also, in an older snub, it would likely shoot at least a few inches lower than point of aim at any distance greater than a few yards because most older .38 Spl revolver had their sights regulated for 158gr bullets (that's the standard weight for both .38 Spl and .357 Mag). Overall, I'd rate it as very close to a 148gr HBWC loading with probably a slight edge to the wadcutter for penetration and POI.
