    Range update

    I'm finally getting around to adding more on the range portion.
    I purchased 3 different .357 loads to test.
    Remington UMC 125gr (Walmart) green/white box


    Remington Express 180gr semi-JHP (Gander Mountain) green/yellow box


    and Hornady 158gr JHP (Gander Mountain)


    All were accurate on the target (didn't bother to take pics of it as they all seemed to perform about the same accuracy wise on the target I was using at 15 yds).
    The 125gr semi-JHP Remington UMC white/green box from wally world was first up. Noticeable increase in felt and visible recoil from .38spc +P rounds, very manageable.
    Next was the 158gr Hornady JHP; way more umph than the 125gr, actually stung a bit in the hand, will be nice all around carry round for 2-legged critters, its what I decided to put in the 2 speed loaders I got from Hays along with my holster/belt seen here
    Then the big boys....180gr Remington Express.....all I can say is....WOW...huge difference above the other two, very stout stuff even with the rubber grips I got on the GP100....again....wow what powerful rounds, will be nice to take a hog and other 4-legged critters with this stuff

    I'll definitely be carrying this with the 180gr when I go hunting, and with the 158gr Hornady when its carried in other situations.

    Well....There is a handgun for life! Everyone should have at least one GP100 series and one SP101 series revolver.

    Congratulations my friend.

    Oh, and keep your wife close. She has excellent tastes.

    Best!

    I think a 3 inch barrel is the perfect length. I have a 3 inch stainless Ruger Speed Six along with two SP-101 snubbies. If I didn't have the Speed Six, I'd definitely get a GP-100.

    I have that exact one. I dig it. .357 mag seems like the way to go.
