Use the standard loads for criminals, use the full magnum loads for bear.
Indeed. IMO one of the greatest "all around" handguns ever made. This one was used by the San Antonio PD.
It shoots pretty well too. This was shot in double taps at 18 yds between the wind gusts that day, load was a 220 gn KSWC at about 1,100 fps.
