13-14" is anything but "deep", in fact it falls short. After decades of putting bullets into living things Ive found that if a cartridge cannot consistently reach 16" it's not up to par. Add in the unnecessary blast & recoil and it's not worth it.Its nice to see the .38 spl penetrating deep! Long live the snubby!
Two to three extra inches of penetration trumps 0.19" of expansion.
