I have a 29 SF
I use the Pearce +0 magazine bases that provide a place for my pinky.
Hornady 155 gr. factory ammo averages 1,278 fps out of the short barrel.
Recoil with that load is comparable to a stout 230 gr. bullet out of a Glock 30 (45 acp).
The Hornady factory 155 gr. ammo (and my handload that duplicates it) is all I've ever shot out of my 29 SF.
After about 300 trouble free rounds, I'm sticking with it.
