Speer 38 Cal 135 Grain Gold Dot Hollow Point 100/BoxSpecial bullets for your compact firearms are offered with Gold Dot Short Barrel as a component for your reloading needs. These bullets are engineered for excellent expansion at velocities common to short barreled accessories2. Gold Dot Short Barrel bullets in .38, .40, and 45 caliber are profiled the same as their regular Gold Dot counterparts for reliable feeding in semi-autos, plus they added more volume to the hollow point cavity to aid in low velocity expansion.

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.
