    My vote: Practice point shooting your snub rapid fire until you can put them all COM and it won't matter a whole heck of a lot what ammo you use.

    But if I had to pick one, it would be the Buffalo Bore 158gr SD ammo.

    Currently, I carry the Federal 110gr Hydra-Shok loads in my M49 snub. Being rather strapped for finances, I pick up what quality defense ammo is available at the LGS.

    The anatomical construction to which you refer is the sternum.
