That's what I carry for defense.

I used to carry Remington 125 grain +P Golden Saber, on the recommendation of a retired cop who used it. Saw some tests of expansion here recently, and it performed very well. Of course, there will be others who say it's not worth a damn.

I just prefer the BB equivalent of the FBI load. Their "heavy" +P version performs near low-end .357 velocities, but that's a little much for my arthritic old mitts.
Oxen gored cheap.
