I use Remington Golden Saber 125gr .357 mag in my snub nose. 1,220fps 413ft lbs in a 4" bbl.

If you look at what is made new today in an average person's price point, i'd definitely say

Let's split some more hairs.Isn't the person plunking down the cash, the "actual buyer"? The

Same here. I have put rounds through my GP100 that would have thrown my 686 or grand dad's old
