I went out yesterday and got a box of the 140gr 357mag leverevolution. I only have a 6" GP100 to shoot them in. I have heard that they don't perform too well out of a revolver. I decided to pull the red tip out of one of the bullets and it makes a mean looking hollowpoint. Has anyone else tried this? I haven't had a chance to test it out.

I have read that they had increased velocity out of all revolvers that were used in the testing - but I can't remember the magazine I got the info from. Accuracy was also on par with any other bullet IIRC.
So, I guess I'm wondering what you've heard about them and poor performance in revolvers.

I can't remember where I read it, but it had to do with the bullet itself. The bullet seemed to perform better from a rifle cause of the longer barrel, it needed the higher velocity. I don't know too much about these loads so I could be wrong.
