230gr for .38/.357? Really?

The other day I was surfing the innerwebs and came across some 230gr .357 wadcutter bullets at an outfit called Badman Bullets-

OK, now I'm always game for something a little on the different side and heavy bullets in hand-fired firearms. Had to admit- this really caught my curiosity going.

Does anyone see a productive purpose for these other than bowling pin shooting? There's just not a lot of info out there about these things (who woulda thunk?). Also, I do recall seeing a warning about only using these in L-frame and larger revolvers. Now, if that's the case, how did the British get away with running .360 diameter 200gr bullets in k-frames?

Has anyone here tinkered around with anything like this before? Have you gotten decent results beyond 10 meters? Apparently that's the going distance for pin shoots I guess.

I'm going to use the words "clip" and "Long Colt" every chance I get. It grinds my gears to see new members attacked when we all know dang good and well what's being refered to.
