38 special Buff Bore For selfdefense?
Who here (if anyone) carries Buffalo bores 158 grain heavy load. The one im looking at is
Heavy .38 Special +P Ammo - 158 gr. L.S.W.C.H.P. --G.C. (1,000fps/M.E. 351 ft.lbs.
I was wondering if the 38 could move fast enough to merit going with a HP. Or should you just stick with a simple wad cutter and add some +P to it? Is anyone afarid of a 38 really overpenetrating?
I also wanted to know if anyone has any experince with the recoil of shooting this bad boy out of a 642 or some comparable Airweight snub.
Please let me know what you think. What your experience is and what you like to load.
