The Never Ending "125 gr. vs. 158 gr." Discussion
I'm leaning towards honing in on 125 gr. .357 Mag for my 2 1/4" SP101 as the "best" carry load possible, but the 158 grainers might make sense, too, in a short barrel.
I wonder if a short barrel doesn't maximize the speed of the 125's and since it would maximize the speed of the 158's then maybe over penetration wouldn't be a problem and a "better" choice for a short barrel.
Many discussions seem to gravitate towards 125 gr. as the ultimate, but just wondering the latest thoughts (to include the use of the full-power 125's, like 357B, in a short barrel).
