I carry 158 grain Speer GDHP .38 +P in my S&W M&P 340 (1-7/8" J-Frame).

I tried several:

PMC .38 +P 125 grain SFHP 815 fps

Speer .38 +P 135 grain GDHP 850 fps

I load a 158 grain SJSP bullet using 6.2 grains of Unique. I get about 860 fps, and the felt recoil is less than with the Speer GDHPs.

I practice with the 158 grain reloads and carry the Speer GDHPs in the 1st 4 chambers and a .357 magnum in the 5th chamber.
