I've only shot 158 gr. "very hot" (felt like small girl holding jackhammer) factory so far. I plan to experiment with several other commercial offerings, but was wondering what handloads I might try that would be more manageable out of a 2 1/8" barrel. Not expecting anything as smooth as the .38 specials I've tried, and still want some magnum punch, just would like to feel like I was the one in control of the gun and not the other way around.
