I went to the range last night with my 340 PD. Loaded the gun this way 5 times. #1 Remington 38+P 125 JHP, #2 Corbon 38+P 110 JHP, #3 Corbon 38+P 110 DPX, #4 Speer Gold Dot Short Barrel 38+P 135 JHP and #5 Speer Gold Dot Short Barrel 357 135 JHP. The first 3 were very easy to control and not much different in recoil. The Speer 38's recoil felt about 25% stiffer than the first 3 and the 357's recoil felt a good 50% more than the Speer 38+P. Able to control? Yes. Comfortable? No. Also, there was no bullet pull on any of the bullets. My 340 PD will be loaded with Corbon 38+P 110 DPX. Accurate, minimal recoil and rapid recovery for follow up shots.
