    I used to think Corbon was the most Powerful hardest kicking +P round out there. I knew the LSWCHP 158 gr Remington was actually more powerful and penetrated and expanded more, but the Corbon just gave a vicious kick when fired.

    Weeeell......all that changed today when I was firing Buffalo Bore .38 Special +P 158 gr LSWCHP through my Python. WHAM WHAM!!!!!!!! Put Corbon's through it and it felt like shooting a .22 long compared to the Buffalo Bore.

    Corbon has been pretty strong for me in the past that stuff must hit pretty hard. Do you have specs? :scrutiny:

    Huh, I'll have to stay away from that one. Federal 158gr Hydra-shok in .357 is probably the hottest one I've shoot. Tossed me and my model 19 around a bit.

    You're comparing apples and oranges, a 110 grain bullet doesn't kick as hard as a 158 grain bullet when going at similar velocities.
