    Any street data on the 357 magnum reduced recoil loads from Federal or Buffalo Bore? Any practical advantages over a 38 P+?

    By the way, I really enjoy reading your Gun Digest Book of Concealed Carry. My only "complaint" is that it's too expensive. After reading the book I wound up paying for a new revolver (bobbed SP101), holster, ammo, etc. :whistling: Keep up the great flow of information, I'm sure it's saving lives!

    Relatively few shootings with it, that I can find. I recall one shooting where the defender used the Remington Golden Saber reduced velocity .357 Magnum round out of a 2.5" revolver, and the result was an EXTREMELY dynamic instant one-shot stop with a chest hit.

    Sorry I don't have further info to provide,
