gold standard

The 125 gr JHP was the gold standard of .357 SD loads, but it comes at a price. Recoil, blast and flash are pretty significant. The 110's are not as bad, but I would be concerned about enough penetration.

There is a youtube video floating around of a lecture to EMS personnel regards gunshot wounds, and some pretty convincing evidence about picking a load that offers good penetration (see Sheiks comments) .

Although I carried 125 JHP for years in my .357's, and still do, this penetration issue has caused me to rethink that load and consider something heavier.
