The LCR is momma's EDC so she has 110 grain Low recoil hydrashok.
I carry Speer Gold Dot in my LC9
Anyone else beside me use their reloads? I use rfn 158 gr. Lazercast bullets and trailboss powder. One neat thing about reloading is I like to make them a little warmer in the winter time for a little better penetration.
Golden Sabre 125gr. +p.
I just bought a Ruger SP 101 stainless .357 with a three-inch barrel to replace my LCR. Didn't care for the LCR's fat handle, nor its DAO trigger, despite its smoothness. I carried Hornady CD Plus-P in the LCR, and I'll do the same in the SP 101.
I carry Hornaday Critical Defense 90 gr FTX. They feed well, are accurate, and the recoil is very manageable. Specs say 1000FPS, 841 Foot pounds.
So far I have been very pleased. OOPS! I gave the ammo I use for my LCP.
For My .38's I use Speer Gold Dot 135g HP. I should learn to read closely.

After trying several brands, shooting 4, and then checking 5th round for signs of "separation", I now carry either of three. My first is CorBon DPX 125gr. .357mag.(checked, separated, complaint sent to CorBon, tightened all new lots, replaced for me, now works wonderfully), Speer Gold Dot 125gr. .357mag., and finally to reduce recoil if needed, Speer Gold Dot "ShortBarrel" 135gr. .38spl.+P. All are very accurate, dependable and safe to carry for SD for me.
Critical Defense in my wife's and Gold Dot's in mine (ok her's is a S&W 642 but close enough). I do not have the short barrel version...too hard to find.
