My DAO SP101 is stoked with either: Buffalo Bore 158gr, .38+P LSWCHP
OR..
Speer Gold Dot 135gr .357 magnum (short barrel)

I tend to keep it loaded with the .38+Ps, so that should I ever need to reload under pressure....
The .38 brass will eject easier (shorter length), and I carry a speed reloader full of the Speer .357

I have the sp101 3 inch bbl. in .357. The w/w 110 grain are ok, and w/w 145 gr silvertips are too, but the gun kicks back more. But I like the Remington Golden Sabers best. They are a med velocity load, but in shorter bbls come close to the full power loads, with much less blast.

The 125 grain GS is a good choice for lower recoil. I would not have a problem carrying them in my SP 101 as a SD load. Same with the 145 Silvertip. I have never been a fan of the 110 grain loads though.

AK. Hiker, I'm still shooting my LCR 357 and no bullet pull, no flame cutting the top strap, no problems.

Thanks for the info on the LCR. Sounds like a great carry gun.

While the LCR is an excellent gun in every other way, I am dissapointed in the large bulbous trigger guard that they put on it! Guns in this class are meant to be pocket carried, and that big trigger guard makes it just a bit more bulky, that it doesn't make sense for me compared to a J-frame. For IWB carry, no big deal....

Add me to the 125gr Remington Golden Sabre .357 fans. Nice medium .357 load that is quite shoot-able in the little Ruger.

I carry Remington Golden Saber 125gr .357mag in my 2 1/4" Ruger SP101. This round seems to work the best for me. Love the SP101!!!

I would carry Nyclads in an SP101.

My friend carries short barrel Gold Dots in his daily. It's the one with the barrel shorter than 3", bobbed hammer.

Remmington 125gr hp or goldensaber 125gr. 357 mag. The sp101 is one of the best 357 mag snubs out there. Its hard to get a more powerfull round for self defence. Its allways been a top performer. And yes the sp101 -3" is a suberb wheelgun. These are real snubbys that you can handle shooting full power defence ammo with controlled accurate repeat shots. The SW or other airweights are useless in 357 magnum.

Full power 357 mag remington hp,s and Pachmyr compac grips best combo I have tryed in a snubby that I can shoot good. Sp101 and Compac Pachmyr,s &pancake holster% few speed strips of same ammo. A street fight stopper that works!

Golden Sabers

+1 to Fowlers post. That's a hard set up to beat. I used to use Cor Bon DPX 125's but the got a little pricey. Once the little supply I have left is gone it will be Golden Saber all the time. I do have a box of winchest 110's I've been wanting to try out.
