Ask your gun dealer about shooting regular .38 wad-cutters for targets but keeping Federal Hydra-Shok hollow points for"self-defense"
Ask if even with a small frame five shot pistol, "carrying" the +P for emergency use. It has been done.
...Federal Hydra-Shok hollow points for"self-defense".
Hydra-shok's are excellent. The lighter calibers (.380, etc.) seem to come apart too easily for winter use though. But for summertime, the .380 Hydra-shok is my choice for my .380 Walther PP.
BTW, the wadcutter is always considered a target round, but it is far superior to a regular round nose for defensive use. Just for fun sometine, try shooting some gelatine and you'll be impressed by the difference.
