    This is what I use in a SW 340 M&P .357. Pushes speed moderately w/ reduced recoil/flash. In .38+P I use the 135 short barrel load.

    Heheh my .357 LCR and Winchester 110gr jhp im comfortable carrying those rounds and ease of shooting and practice.

    Ag first i felt winchesters 110gr coukdnt get the job done but now im confident it will.

    I carry both to help with my confidence G19 at 5 oclock position and LCR at 1 oclock front. Or ill carry LCR in ankle holster and G19 at 5 oclock IWB.

    Underwood Ammo has a nice selection of performance loads for the 38 spl and the 357 magnum.

    I feel more comfortable carrying the Hornady 158 gr XTP i want extreme penetration but im worried about the expansion out of a tiny 1-7/8" barrel, the 110 gr only penetrate 9 inches which is very poor, i also bought a box of remington 125 gr sjhp but man they kick harder then the 158 gr! Now im stuck with alot of barn burning .357 loads!

    125 grain .357 golden saber!
    Since you have a concealed carry weapon you are most likely defense shooting. The golden saber cartridges are low recoil and high, high quality. They can tend to be a little expensive depending on where you are at so check CheaperThanDirt before buying at a place near you.

    When I do carry my Sp-101 I use hand loads of 158 gr. lead SWC that leave the short barrel at about 900-1000 fps. Comfortable and I don't worry about expansion.-jw
