    In many contexts, "What would Jesus do?" is not a particularly helpful inquiry.

    I think that when LE went with autos these faded away.
    I even bought a box of 100, loose in a a carton marked for range use only.

    I think the round had mostly been dumped by law enforcement long before the Short Barrel option came out. Here’s a photo of a regular 125gr +p GD next to a short barrel 135gr +p GD. Larger cavity and an extra “stitch” on the SBGD.

    It’s probably fairy dust but the idea is interesting.

    Hell of a resurrection huh. Been away for a while.

    Verts been gone awhile unfortunately. Are you using the 38 special 135g SBGD? Recently I was trying to decide to use that or 158gr SWC. Eventually went with the heavier bullet for the penetration from short barrels. Almost the same trade off as with 380. Penetration versus expansion and I'll always choose the former when it is in question. The tests I saw, the 135 only went about 13 inches. That isn't taking in consideration barriers or bone.
