And with the wrong comp, you might just shoot yourself in the foot with the 2nd round ! A great idea, back when .38 Stupid was the only game in town, but far over-powered for what was needed. In a 10" Contender barrel, it would make an excellent hunting/varmint round. Be a whole lot of fun in a 16 1/2" carbine barrel ! Easily powerful enough for coyote & small deer, given a proper bullet choice. uncle albert Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
