I'm going to try this to see if I get good performance in gel at a lower velocity. The goal is lower recoil but a solid personal defense round. This short barrel bullet is made to open up at lower velocity, and the Speer rep told me 1,000 FPS would be minimum.
It should give the same performance as a 357 mag with a 2" barrel, at much lower pressure and recoil. We'll see. Stay tuned for the final review where the stars and rating will mean much more. Using the coupon this review provided to give a better review later.
