Well, after running several samples of different ammo through, I have to say I really like the 158 grain gold dots. Rapid fire these things are very controllable and hit spot on.

On a side note, I picked up some cheap Remington UMC 125 grain hollow points - OUCH! These things have to be loaded over max. After 20 rounds my hand was throbbing. I shot them side by side with hot hand-loaded 158 grain hard cast and the felt recoil is still worse. I gave them to my Dad to shoot in his 4" security six and they hurt him too.
