It's approaching low-end .357 Magnum velocity. In a 642 it is going to be absolutely no fun to shoot, to the point of pain.

The standard pressure version will get your attention--it's the equivalent of the older +P FBI load--but not like the BB hot stuff.

It always amuses and irritates me when I see some miscreant in a movie shot with 9mm or .45 ACP and fly backward across the room.

Does not happen. Handgun knock-down power is a myth.
