A while ago I was sold on energy, and momentum and what not. I still take these factors into consideration when a large handgun is involved. But for a snubbie, and particularly a scandium alloy snubie, many people downgrade to 38 special +p because of recoil. Other manufacturers like Speer have a specially developed short barrel load. Not much is said about Remignton Golden Saber 357 Magnum. Reading the specs velocity for the 125 gr. bullet is only 1220 fps out of a 4 inch revolver. That pales in comparison to their R357M1 SJHP load at 1450 FPS. But who cares if a snubie is being used ? the bullet is designed to expand at low velocities and I'm thinking it is a great carry load in my 340 pd any opinions ?
