I have had this discussion with some friends of mine and wondered what you all thought on the matter. I have never been a big believer in +p ammo in my snubbie .38. I do not think that the extra "poop" behind the bullet would be of any benifit for such a short barrel (2"). Range test in my Smith has showed a considerable drop in accuracy if I feed her +p over a smaller load. What cha all think?
