    Was reintroduced this year, I have it in my J frame, only standard presurre though.

    According to Federals website, the Nyclad is only offered in 125 grain standard pressure.

    I know! I am luck to have 11 boxes stashed! It still works great, even in the 342PD - I can manage the recoil easily.

    I like them all hot and heavy.

    As long as the round functions well in the intended pistol that is, but I want the heaviest quality JHP, loaded as hot as I can find it.

    I have a good preference for bonded bullets, otherwise the Hornady XTP is an older design that's still a favorite.

    Accuracy ALWAYS WINS! So carry what you can hit with.

    If you find yourself in a fair fight your tactics stink.
