Chronographing the 638, Hydrashok vs. DPX

I will be carrying the Corbon DPX from here until something better comes along. The Corbon loads were 160 fps faster than the Federal, and I also like the shape of the DPX bullets, as they help facilitate loading with a speed loader. I did not test them for accuracy yet, as this is not a parameter that is as important with a pocket pistol and its limited range of normal use. The primary role is self defense where reliability rules without question. Stopping power is next in importance, and that function depends on the shooter as much as the power stats of the round.
