Default best 357 ammo

I have a taurus 357 magnum with a 2 ich barrel which I use for self defence. I have speer gold dot 125gr, federal classic jhp 125gr and eldorado starfire 150gr.
Does anyone have any suggestions for good self defence ammo?

I think you've got some of the best there with Gold Dots and Starfires. Both should do the job quite well.

A Gold Dot is a good choice in any caliber.

The 125gr Gold Dot is about perfect for a short barreled revolver.

Ah, its nice being surrounded by intellectuals.

Speer actualy made a run of short barrel 125gr Gold Dots. Faster powder for complete ignition in snubbies.

I think Buffalo Bore heavy 357 would yield the greatest results in a snubby.
