CorBon DPX 125 gr. .357 magnum for a snubbie???
I shoot a S&W 340 and I like to shoot the .357 ammo.
I'd recover between shots a little better with a somewhat reduced load from the Double Tap 125 gr. I've been shooting (1400 fps from a 2" barrel).
I'm considering the 125 gr. DPX ammo for carry. How fast are they from a snubbie? How do they recoil? How do they perform overall? Any information I can get would be helpful.
Has anyone shot them? tested them? etc. from a snubbie????
More chronograph velocities???

I shoot a 1 & 7/8" barrel. I figure that (from your testing) I can expect around 1100 fps. Does that sound about right?
Now that this round is your usual carry round in your Ruger, have you fired any more through a chronograph to see if this prior test is representative of the speed you get with newer boxes of the same 125 gr. .357 DPX ammo?
