"There are some reloaders who have even double stacked these in .357 cases as a self defense round that generates double impact on the target."

As described here (http://www.pennbullets.com/38/38-caliber.html). (on the 100 Grain DBBWC page). Anyone doing this? Results?

Thanks in advance
Tom

Both Remington & Winchester sold factory multiple bullet loads back in the 70's.

It was a short-lived fad that didn't amount to much.

Seems three holes aren't better then one if there isn't enough penetration to get to the boiler room.

The two 100 grain bullets would probably do better then the three nested bullet loads sold commercially. But you are still limited to 200 grain bullet velocity.

Still, I would rather trust my life to one bigger 140 or 158 grain bullet going faster.

Find a copy of THE ABC's of RELOADING, there is an article on the concept there.

This 75 Gr WC from Matts Bullets (http://www.mattsbullets.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=65&products_id=231) would keep the overall weight more manageable.

I have not used any bullets from Matts, but have seen good reviews, and he has some interesting bullets. I may try his .41 caliber HBWC one of these days.

Still, I would rather trust my life to one bigger 140 or 158 grain bullet going faster.
Agreed. The double stack thing would be a play toy.
