I've read, both on here and a couple of police history books, that the 158 grn LRN loading was oft referred to as the "widow maker".

However, this was due to the belief that it resulted in more dead police officers than dead bad guys.

However, the 158grn LRN and like 92 grn FMJ are generally the only non- +P loading for .38 Spl comercially available in my area.
