    Corbon DPX performs better than Hornady's version, which has had too many QC (inconsistent expansion) issues for me to consider.

    The snappy 135-gr. +P Gold Dot load is fine, just that it had more recoil than standard pressure 158-gr. from Buffalo Bore which I prefer because it shoots to POA in my two snubnose revolvers. The 135-gr. +P Gold Dot loads shoot around 3" low at 21' in my S&W 637-CT and Ruger LCR.
    Aim for the Thoracic Triangle Area between the armpits and the base of throat.

    1. Shot Placement: Center Mass Between the Armpits & Base of Throat
    2. Heavy for Caliber Bullet Weight / Construction
    3. Choice of Caliber

    Only hits count. I don't really give a poop what I shoot through my gun as long as it a big time brand.
    Mark Twain:
    The government is merely a servant -- merely a temporary servant; it cannot be its prerogative to determine what is right and what is wrong, and decide who is a
    patriot and who isn't. Its function is to obey orders, not originate them.

    In a 2" snub, It's still hard to beat "Old reliable"; Winchester's +P 158 gr. Lead Semi-Wad Cutter (HPX38SPD).
