Ammo comparison question
Christmas morning I awoke to find a new revolver under the tree. My son bought me a S&W 642, .38 spl, snubby. (Ya gotta love a kid like that! I must have raised him right. :) )

Also under the Yule tree was a box of Federal 110 gr. HydraShok ammo. I've always been a fan of heavier bullets, and have a supply of 147 gr. HydraShok +P.

Can anyone suggest a site for ammo comparison, when fired from a snubby? I've googled till I'm blue in the face :rolleyes: with little luck.

Does Federal have ballistics data on their website?

GENERALLY, the lighter weight bullets will be more efficient in the snubbie. Recoil will be more manageable.
