training and distance

Every box of ammunition ive purchased for training and usage, has little bits of data on the back. distance and bullet energy and drop data.

ironically they use an amazing and "uncalled" for 25 yard distance for both 38 special and .357 magnum. Sure i know revolvers are different, but if the standard data is based upon a 25 yard zero for your weapon, then why is the current trend

all for short range "blasting" of 7-15 yard targets?
