    A Speer +P loading I like is 3.7 grs Bullseye with 158 gr Speer LSWC seated 1.440 with CCI 500 primers. It chronographs from my S&W 637 approx 735 FPS.

    Yup. I've shot 1000s of them.
    There are 550 million arms in worldwide circulation. This is 1 firearm for every 12 people on the planet. The only question is , HOW DO WE ARM THE OTHER !!? The Lord of War.
