I'm glad someone brought that topic up. I've been hand loading for over 25 years and have always loaded a light high velocity bullet for everything I shoot, as you said, even my shotgun. Recently I was shoppting for my usual 110 gr. or 125 gr. XTPHP to load for my .357 mag. and all that was on the shelf was 158 gr. Gold Dot. I bought the 158s and loaded them expecting a massive amount of recoil and was really surprised to find that even at 1300 fps from my snub S&W recoil was really mild. I didn't do any penetration testing, but I would bet that its going to be impressive. You mentioned the Golden Saber which has always been a bulet of interst to me. Have you chronographed it or done any penetration testing with it?
