I've just about had enough of reading ballistics tables from the various manufacturers and trying to calculate the ins and outs of this and that particular load. I've got a very nice COLT Detective Special from the early 1970's. I got it to replace my father's COLT which was taken by a family member. That's all water under the bridge. What I want to suggestions based on actual experience of what load would be good for use in this pistol. I don't expect it to be a long range target pistol. I enjoy using it at 7-10 yds., which I figure is about as far as this pistol would ever be used. If you have some experience with this type of pistol, if you have a load that you have found works well, please post what you are using, etc. As far as I know this is a strong revolver. I think it would be at least as strong as a K-frame S&W, which is what I have always used. Your suggestions will be appreciated.
