I just went out today (11/5/2021) and tested a
110gr Gold Dot +P..........1005fps
148 BBwc full 38 spl........714fps...... and a
158 Lwc full 38 spl........... 720fps
for a light SD load for a friend, to check out the recoil.

The only load that shot at POA was the 158 gr LwcFN and it had manageable recoil.

I don't trust the 110 or 125gr bullets in a J frame for SD use, per all my test and stuff I see on the net.

The 158 Lead..................
or the new
130 HST or 135 Gold Dot are my three choices for a SD load in a J frame snub.
