    135 GR vs 125 GR (38 SPL+P Gold GDHP)

    S&W Model 642 Airlight

    I use .38 SPL 130 GR. FMJ for practice. I currently use the .38 SPL+P 125 GR Gold GDHP for carry. At the end of range time I tend to shoot 1-5 off.

    Going to be changing to the 38 SPL+P 135 GR Gold GDHP for carry. Is the 135 GR worth the change up from the 125 GR?

    Thanks for any thoughts.

    Either one is going to hurt like H***!!!! 125 grain silvertips is what I tote in my Model 60. IMHO 10 grains ain't going to make that big of deal out of a snub just put'em where it counts, no matter what the weight!!
