    I don't have the specifics in front of me but IIRC that was actually one of the best performing rounds in that caliber when it came out.

    The Nyclad in standard pressure was loaded to duplicate the old FBI load with no lead emissions ( real early pc ammo for range use for agencys that wanted to shoot pure duty ammo ) . IIRC the +p was THE load for snubbys during the time frame ( if you could find them localy , it wasnt like today ) . If your ammo has been properly stored i would have no reservations on it as a defensive carry load even today it would be hard to beat in penetration , expantion ect..
    Make sure you get full value out of today , Do something worthwhile, because what you do today will cost you one day off the rest of your life .
    We only begin to understand folks after we stop and think .

    I have two boxes for my snubby. It is/was THE round for the snubby but they discontinued it with the rise of the pocket wondernine. It iwll almost certainly never come back.
