If you like the .357 Mag., but don't like the recoil generated by heavier bullets, consider this 135-grain load from Speer. Many semi-automatic pistol cartridges would trade in their nickel-plated cases for this kind of terminal performance. This load will also perform just about identically from a shorter barreled revolver.
