The RNL bullet is the original "cop killer" bullet as police officers using them lost gunfights with dramatic regularity.
Robo... Perhaps you can help me.
Due to the difficulty of drawing from the 4 o'clock position while in my truck, I typically also carry my Ruger SP101 wedged between the 60/40 split seat at my right thigh.
It's always been loaded with .357 Mag but I was considering stepping it down to a .38 SPC load, mainly because should I need to fire it, it will be in the enclosed cab...without hearing protection... Ouch... LOUD... Ouch
Is there an option for a decent .38 or .38 +P load with
Lower decibels than the .357 Mag?
