Well I picked up some Speer Gold Dot Short Barrel 357 mag ammo today. And am now asking what the point is? The 357 short barrel on Speer's website states the short barrel version only puts out 990 velocity 294 energy?!?!!?! The 38 Special +P puts out 945 and 248! Whats the point in the 357, can anyone find one? Especially since the regular 357 mag in 125gr posts 1450 velocity, and 584 energy.
Seems to me like the short barrel 357 is pointless?
