As the title could hint, im trying to find the best load for my lady's purse gun. Its a Taurus .38 special +P 2in barrel. I load 158g hollow points for 357 with great success, most argue thats the "best" 357 working load(I know some argue 125g). But for the lower pressure, slower, and shorter cased 38 special I have no idea what works best. Currently shes got half a box of the Winchester 125g JHP loaded with bullseye, id have to pull up the archives but I think it was somewhere around 4.5gr charge. What im working with is: Bullets Nosler 158g JHP Speer 158g JFP Winchester 125G JHP Hornady 110g JHP For powder i was going to try some 700x hi-skor but I also have Bullseye, Bluedot, Titegroup, and trail boss. Back to the main question. What usually is a consistent self defense bullet to load for 38 special? Any input would be much appreciated.
