Penetration is very important, probably why the .38 Special high speed LRN and SWC were better performers than the standard velocity.

Back when I carried a Model 36 S&W in an ankle holster as a BUG to my 1911. I had it loaded with +P+ 158 grain LSWC-HP. I never had to use it, but I figured those would be almost as good as my 1000 fps 200 grain SWC's that were in my .45 ACP.
