Picking up a Ruger LCR on sat... been a long while since i carried a snubby.... prob gonna go with the usual 125gr JHP xtp....any other suggestions?
Have had any problem with bullet jump?158 grain lead semi-wadcutters and 158 grain lead semi-wadcutters only, especially in the snubs.
Lately I've been carrying ammunition from a small batch prepared a month or so back. Seemed a little more accurate on target than the factory stuff or maybe I was just in a shooting humor when I gave it a "check-ride." Or, it could all be in my head.

There's also a box of Remington +P 158 grain lead semi-wadcutter hollow point loads are around here as well as Winchester's version of the same loading. The Remington version is a bit speedier and seems to have a softer lead bullet than Winchester's version.
