Really nice expansion. Just found me a box and am now stoked i did as these
look like some proper rounds.

For velocity, check out a website called Ballisticsbytheinch. They tested a
bunch of ammo in varying barrel lengths. Most tests included barrels from
2" to 16: I think. Interesting on .22 LR, velocity hit a peak around 14",
and even went down slightly with longer barrel. This is from memory, so the
exact numbers are probably a little different. Also, Buffalo Bore quotes
velocity (and has a cool chart for energy) from several barrels of actual
guns, including 2" for most handgun loads.

Thanks for the info. According to hipowersandhandguns website there us only
a small loss in velocity for a snubnose for the tested ammo. I didn't see
tests of the Winchester White Box .38+p but that should also perform well
*if* it uses fast burning powder. For some reason the S&W snubbies perform
well in ballistics tests too.

@hammerogod Where are you reading that velocity is similar between 2 1/2"
and 4" barrels? I hope you are right. Advertised velocity is 945fps but I
doubt you'll see over 800 - 850 fps from a 2 1/2" barrel. .357, yes but not
.38+p. They will penetrate adequately but probably won't expand.

the chirping birds and nature sounds are a nice touch for the subject
matter. ya looks like a pretty solid load

@baker70romeo Longer barrels generally produce higher velocity. A short
barrel could possibly reduce the velocity of the round to the point where
it would not expand reliability. Although I think non expansion from a
short barrel is not as much of an issue as it was 20 years ago.
Manufacturers have learned how to tweak their designs to open over a wide
range of speed.

I use the winchester +p bonded

Author andreleger2001 ( ago)
We tested a few of the .38's from a snubbie, but I don't think we did this

Author David Wooldridge ( ago)
Looks like it explained well. Wonder how it would preform in a snubbie.

Author bigboss686 ( ago)
I really am genuinely surprised when the good performance on some of these
bargain-basement bullets, very good performance for the money
