What ammo do you carry in your LCR?

This is a discussion on What ammo do you carry in your LCR? within the LCR Discussion forums, part of the LCR category; I like standard pressure (though hot) Buffalo Bore 158gr SWHP, low flash. 850 fps out of a 2" and that soft lead will certainly mushroom....

    I took a look at the video and am rather surprised at the penetration-I expected 12-14 inches. However, try shooting it-it is a handful. About the only other load I might consider is the Gold Dot +P short bbl.

    For my two LCRs in 38+P.

    I always liked the 125 gr. Remington +P load and the Double Tap 110 gr. Barnes TAC-XP as well.



    My mom will be buying a LCR 38+P with CT laser grip in a few weeks.

    Her carry load will be the Double Tap 125 gr. Bonded Defense.

    My choice for a forthcoming KLCR .357 will be the 110 gr. TAC-XP or
    the 125 gr. Bonded Defense that uses the Speer Gold Dot bullet.
