125 grn mag Hydroshocks chrono at 1275 fps avg in my SP101 snub. It has some recoil but it is manageable. The grip must not fit you.
That's my experience also. I was shooting a 3" SP101 yesterday, with stock grips. Four different types of ammo, up to mag tech 158 gr jsp in .357. That one had some kick to it, but it was still manageable. The golden saber .357 hp's were very easy to control.
