The local sheriffs department tested the same ammo. From a Ruger Blackhawk with a 6.5" the velocity was pretty close to the same as ballistics 101. I happened to own the blackhawk. I really could care less what most people shoot.
Here are double taps ballistics with a 110 gr bullet.
Velocity: 1640fps / 4" Ruger GP-100
1470fps / 1 7/8" S&W
1810fps / 6"bbl S&W 686
Bullet: 110gr Barnes TAC-XP
Muzzle Energy: 657 ft. lbs. 4"bbl
Doesn't look like double tap was using a carbine. You need a 6" barrel for the powder to burn and the gasses to expand with a 357. I just shake my head when I read all the internet hunters saying a 4" barrel is best for hunting.
