Example: Would you consider a weapon that produces 1323 Ft Lbs of energy and zips along at 3100FPS as having impressive lethality?? Be careful before answering, it's a trick question
What would be REALLY impressive would be to get that 62 grain bullet going 3100 f/sec out of a revolver
...... this being The Rvolver Forum
and all..... hell, I can't get them to go that fast out a 16" barrelled AR without wrecking the brass.....
Anyhoo, the .38 special is just about the easiest round to reload ..... I have loaded far more of them than any other cartridge.
