    I just bought a bot of that and a box of Winchester yesterday form Cheaper Than Dirt. It wasn't cheap, almost $30 a box. But thanks to the heads up from TomEgun I used a promo code and got $10 off the order.( Promo code 1885-6508) I think it ends next week.

    My wife has arthritus in her hands. Even standard 38spl recoil causes pain, and she's gotten to the point where she shoots very little. To reduce recoil, but still give her a somewhat credible self defense capability, I hand loaded some hornady 158gr XTP bullits into a 38 S&W case. The recoil is lighter, and I consider the XTP bullit, even at the lower velocity, to be one of the best expanding pistol bullits available.

    I havent run into the arthritis problem yet, but I believe I would consider a lighter bullet with more velocity as a means to reduce recoil instead of the heavy one with less speed. After all, that is the thinking of the 9mm boys.
