If I were to compile a list of the Top 10 38 Special loads for defensive use, Corbon's 125 grain +P 38 Special load would rank in the Top 5. Having entered the law enforcement profession at the age of 19, my career spanned the transitional period from revolvers to semi-automatics. Although now retired from the professional, I can honestly say that never felt under equipped carrying a revolver. Particularly when I was permitted to load it with this excellent offering. The standard for a vast number of departments during those years was to down load their 357 revolvers with 38 Special +P loadings. The 125 grain +P was by and large the most common here in the South. These loads almost universally had a muzzle velocity of 950 fps and hovered around 250 ft lbs of energy using a semi-jacketed hollow point. Corbon's version surpasses the old standard by around 175 fps. They also use what I feel to be a better bullet design that is more suited for snub-nose revolvers. Velocity in snub-guns is crucial, as it directly impacts expansion and terminal performance in both the 38 Special, 357 Magnum, and 9mm. My own experience with this loading shows that it groups well out of snubbies like the Ruger SP101 and Smith & Wesson's numerous offerings. Recoil is very easy to manage, and I find that this load burns very clean compared to more traditional loadings. Muzzle flash is slightly noticable but no where near magnum levels, so use in low light levels is not an issue. The down range performance is always the final judge of how suitable a round is for defensive carry. In my years of using this loading I find that it expands extremely well, has a good energy transfer, and penetrates well enough to accomplish the task at hand. As always, the choice of what you load into your defensive revolver is ultimately your own to make. I can only say that this load at the +1000 feet per second mark works extremely well and is worth your consideration...
