I am looking for a great HP defense round to use out of a snub S&W 640 (Steel J frame). I have the option to shoot .357 vs .38+p. As I was doing some research online I came across the federal hydrashok .357 reduced recoil. Packs in about 490 ft/lbs of energy, vs somewhere around 250-290 in a .38+p. Anyone have any experience with these rounds? How reduced is the recoil or is it still a small hand cannon? Am I better off with the .357 or faster follow up with the +p rounds?
