The +P 158 grain .38 Special LSWCHP is alive and well. The old "FBI/Metro" load has been getting the job done from 2" and 4" revolvers for many years. I've carried it in my EDC for twelve years plus, and my head-of-the-bed Model 10 is loaded with it. Vastly preferable to LRN standard-pressure rounds.

Buffalo Bore sells one they bill as standard pressure and safe for all .38 Special guns that they claim exits a 2" barrel at over 1000 fps with minimal flash. I'll have to try that to believe it, but I may just do that.
