I like the hardcast lead semi-wadcutter for a J-frame load, especially for winter carry. A lot of JHP won’t expand reliably out of a 2 inch barrel, and in the winter up here in Southern Canada, there exists the distinct possibility of any defensive round needing to penetrate substantial layers of clothing and still get deep enough to hit vitals. That’s why I like the +P 158 grain hardcast, because it will shoot clean through a gel block after defeating the 4 layer denim test.
The challenge coin is from a friend of mine. Makes a good photo accessory.
