I bought this little Smith 60 Snubbie yesterday.
All ammo shot at 25 feet with 14X targets.
Winchester Whitebox 38 Special 130: very smooth. Shot some bulls eyes.
Remington +P 38 130 Gr.: Very easy to control, but larger groups.
Speer Gold Dot 130 Grain 38 +P: the best, the most accurate, the easiest to control.
Remington 357 130 gr: more difficult to control, wider groups.
Federal 357 130 Grain Personal Defense: Ouch. At least I got all of them on the target. Federal should take "low recoil" off the box. It ain't.
Nice snubby, but definitely a belly gun for up close and personal.
I love Smith snubbies. Shoot the snot out of it - they call snubbies an "expert's gun" for a reason. Enjoy it!
BTW, I have a S&W .38 Special and I really like the Gold Dots too. Good call.
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.
