Hello. Here's some observations from my own informal testing:
A Look at Corbon
This is a discussion on CorBon DPX 125 gr. .357 magnum for a snubbie??? within the Defensive Ammunition & Ballistics forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; 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 ...
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????
You mentioned that the DPX was a little slower than you'd expected from a Corbon loading and that you'd like to see it a little faster.
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?
2" barrel, it is my opinion that any SD .357 rnd shot at the ranges 2" barrels are meant to be used will work. Having posted that, I think the DPX is a perfect rnd for SD.
