I use +p and the .357 mag in my 65-5 smith.....I like the speer short barrel loadings.....the +P is 880 fps /135gr bullet and the .357 mag is 990 with the same bullet.....IMHO this is a very good pair of cartidges ..I dont know what your 60 is rated as ..but if it will handle the .357 mag loading I ...

Hangun'in yote's

Blue, I'm resonablely sure the 125xtp will expand at the velocity I'm useing . I believe I should be in the 1350 muzzle velocity range ...max is 17.5 ..the Lyman manual I have show 17.5 or 7 not sure which at 1409 from a 4'' barrel. I have a 6'' barrel ... I may bump up another .5 gr .......but I sh...

Blue , You are correct , i could go higher with my charges but feel I'm at a good starting point . My lyman manual use's the gold dot for the loads and I figured with the XTP's longer bearing surface its better to start alittle lower.My real plan is to use the 140's they expanded at slightly lower v...

Mine has the 6'' barrel and I plan on reaching out as far as possible ..I'm hopeing for groups of a 1'' @ 25yds and under 4'' @ 100 ....Ive always thought a fuller case lead to better accur...
