I prefer a hollowpoint in the 140-158gr range because they penetrate better, have less offensive flash and blast, shoot closer to POA in most fixed-sight revolvers, and are gentler on the forcing cones of S&W K-Frames than their lighter, faster counterparts. My preference is Remington 158gr SJHP but I've used Cor-Bon 140gr JHP and Winchester 145gr Silvertips in the past and would not hesitate to do so again if the Remington loading wasn't available.
