I shot a ton of that stuff (the 110 "Treasury Load) in the front of my career, mostly through various issue K frame Smiths. I can still recall the mantra that the load was near .357 performance and we should all be confident of its ability as a stopper. I was never impressed. Its performance dispatching whitetails crippled in deer v. car MVA's, and ferals seemed to leave alot to be desired.

After some agency shootings nation wide, where the bad guys absorbed multiple rounds and continued hostilities, there was a distinct and rapid move to .357/125 ammo. The switch to autos came just a short while later. (and we all got 9mms initially with subsonic, 147 JHP, back to square one)
