Forgive me if you've seen this before but it is a great video displaying the effectiveness of the speer 135g +p GDHP in .38 special.

I know Mas endorses this round for .38 special snubbies and based on this test, I can see why. That expansion would ruin your whole day! I now carry this in my 642.

That's pretty impressive. I don't carry a short barrel .38 but my dad does. I think I'll buy a box for him.

That is a solid performer for sure. I used to carry a j-frame, might start again.

This is the NYPD issue round for .38 special revolvers. Another good choice is the Remington 158 grain LSWCHP.

Looks like a real good runner up to the .38+P DPX :tongueout:

I recently went back to carrying a snubby (Ruger LCR) and have been loading it with this round.

I read that the N.Y.P.D. was so impressed with this load that a large California P.D. has approved it. I can't remember which One. (my brain is old)

"all six of the ammunition types failed to expand in the bone plate/gelatin target."

many folks dont consider bone when picking a load to carry.

DPX looks like a good runner up to Gold Dot's proven track record and documented street data.:whistling:

Where do you find the street data for DPX? Is there any?

Both LAPD and the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department make this round available for active duty officers/deputies who carry a .38 for backup or off duty. As an LASD retiree I can go to their range and get a great deal on a couple of boxes of 50. I carry this in my Smith 642.

I really believe the Speer GDHP Short Barrel 135 gr 38 +P is
the very best SD ammo available for a snubbie revolver.
That's all I carry in my S&W 342 ti J-Frame.

This round gives the little, light, J-frame quite a kick. I do not enjoying the J-frame at all.

You don't shoot a lot of them. Just shoot enough to Know ware they hit and if you can control them. I have been told that recoil, and blast is a range issue and not noticed when TSHTF. Dry fire and lighter loads can get you familiar with the gun.
