    Hello Mas,

    What is your opinion of this "Treasury load" for use on a J-Frame 340 PD or M&P 340CT ?

    I know you have a justifyable marked preference for the Gold Dot short barrel load but, if availability of the Gold Dot is an issue, do you view as adequate the terminal ballistic effects on this other load ?

    FWIW, I tried some and even though it is a +P+ loading, it seems the lighter bullet kicks less than the heavier bullets in +P loadings.

    I found the 110 grain +P+ to be harder on the guns than 158 grain +P. In any case, it was somewhat on the shallow side in penetration and the general consensus today seems to be that we have better load now.

    best,
    Mas
