For bang away target shooting with an a Model 27 N frame, what is the difference between 130 full metal jacket and 158 round nose ammo?

Point of aim, recoil and often cost.

The 38spl and 158 grain should go hand in hand, a perfect match.

The venerable model 27, originally the Registered Magnum, that true first magnum N-frame, cries out for the real stuff.

On the other hand mine seems to shoot 148gr. wadcutters close to the same point of aim.

This about sums it up.

For just "banging away" I would buy the ammo that's the cheapest.

Do you mean .357 Magnum ammo?

If so, it is fun, but I would not want to shoot 100 rounds of it in 30 minutes.

I'm a creature of habit and like shooting the full house magnum H110/296 loads. And when I shoot them I usually put at least 200 rounds in a session through my pieces. Yes, they are very stout and send me to the ibuprofen when I get home to kill the wrist pains. But a magnum is a magnum and deserves it's potential in my opinion, and it hurts so good! But shoot what ever you enjoy shooting, it's your dime.
