    Got a Ruger .38 LCR ~ What ammo?.

    123
    Hey Fellas, first post.

    I have a Ruger .38 LCR, its a snub nosed.

    I am wondering what rounds would be best for cheap target practice, and what rounds would be good for Conceal and Carry stopping power. I am all new to .38's and revolvers in general, and am looking to get as much bang, and ammunition for my buck as i can. Any Suggestions fellas?.

    For defense I keep the Gold Dot short barrel
    Speer Gold Dot .38 Special +P 135 gr Ammo Test - YouTube

    For practice I reload my oun ammo, so...

    But if I buy rounds I'll pick up a box of 100 Remington UMC 125 +P semi-jacketed HP from Walmart.

    being a revolver you can get any cheap ammo
    some cheap ammo will not work in semiautomatics but a revolver is different
    check the prices at midwayusa or cheaperthandirt.com
    i think you can sort the listings by price

    one other item:
    join NRA
    they recently documented a lot of penetration tests for several calibers for self defense
    it might be on their web page

    For defensive purposes, take a look at Buffalo Bore's non-+P lead semi-wadcutter hollow-points (the classic "Chicago-" or "FBI-Loads"). BB also makes them in +P but they are a little stout for a snubbie.
