I wonder how much faster? I don't see much difference in the way out recoil between the +p and the .357. If it's a larger gain, maybe I'll need to reconsider the .357.

I don't believe any are using cyclinders constructed of Scandium/aluminum alloy, the likely options are normal steel or Titanium.

Get a S&W 640-1.

Enjoy your 340 - should be a breeze to carry. Not so sure about the WWB 110's though - they put out some serious fireballs in my GP100!

I just traded for a M&P 360 myself and have been carrying it around the house in a Galco UCH. Loaded with Hornady CD +p 38's it is a breeze to carry and should be effective at 'around the house' distances. Seems much lighter than my G19 with full magazine.

I have an 11.1 oz S&W 342 ti.
Run Speer GDHP 135 gr Short Barrel 38+P.
Many, including me, feel it's the best 38 round for a snubbie.

In my S&W 640 2" and 65 3" 357s I like Remington Golden Sabers.
Full house 357 run 1450 from a 4", but only 1200 from 2".
Sabers are 1220 4", 1190 3", 1100 2" and much more controllable.

The 'short barrel' Speers are on my short list of ammo to try. Thanks for the links.

I don't think there is a bad round in 125G. JHP 357. At least I never herd of one.

Today I was working in shorts & a t-shirt since it was 102 degrees and sweating in my UC ride so I opted for my Ruger LCR iwb with Winchester plus P plus 110 grain rounds. I had a Sig 229 & AR close at hand. All of sudden it seems that heroin is making a big comeback & many of those guys are unpredictable.
