    Buffalo bores short barrel 38 special LSWCHP question

    https://www.buffalobore.com/index.ph...t_detail&p=110

    Because this is a semi wad cutter and a hollow point in the event it did not open would it still have the effects of a normal semi wad cutter? Just curious what are some thoughts on that compared to a regular hollow point bullet.

    Also any concerns shooting this stuff out of an LCR 38+P, I have shot a cylinder and it was stout.(This is what im normally carrying right now)

    Cheers

    The Buffalo Bore LSWCHP was developed for pistols that aren't designed for +p ammo. Based on what I've read, it's about the only thing in a non+p round that will give you "some" expansion out of a snub nosed .38. If your pistol is rated for +p ammo, then another great choice would be the Speer Gold Dot Short Barrel 135gr +p .38 (23921).

    Yep. The relatively sharp shoulder of the SWC profile helps to cut through tissue, rather than push it aside as a round nose bullet would do.
