Nyclad was a "Silver bullet" years ago for the little snub .38 but now things are looking a lot better for this old war horse, with ammo from Cor-Bon with the 110gr DPX and the Speer 125gr regular & 135 Gold Dot "short barrel" loads. The Federal load Hydro-Shok is a iffy on expansion and some call it the Hydro-Suck.............and the 158 lswchp by winchester is hard lead vs Rem/Fed and needs a 4" barrel to mushroom where the other two will open up to .570" dia in Gel test out of a 1 7/8" barrel.
Most 38 penetrate 10 to 16 inches but the new 158 GD jacket will penetrate over 29 inches in the .357 Mag for hunting and their
is Nosler if you need MORE!!
If you want maximum Factory loads, you might look up Buffalo Bore or Double Tap ammo that will be "Smoking Fast".
Now if we can just find stores that have ammo on stock !!
