It may be worth pointing out, at this point in the discussion, that for many decades THE DEFENSIVE BULLET was the LSWCHP (and before that the LSWC), either in .38 Special +P or in .357 magnum (but the same projectile in either case, usually with 158 grains mass). This load was extensively used by the FBI and by may other law enforcement groups (excluding politics, which sometimes demanded the use of LRN bullets).

While that era is over and autoloaders now dominate defensive handguns, many experienced individuals still use revolvers and LSWCHP rounds are still very potent. I personally favor the more-modern projectile designs (such as the current Gold Dot offerings by Speer), but that does NOT mean the LSWCHP is inadequate.
