I picked up a bunch of .357 130 grain HST Projectiles. I laddered up some for 38 +p and some light 357 mag loads. Testing was done at 7 yards and the revolver was a S&W PC 627 (2.62"). The powder was CFE Pistol, virtually no flash and no powder in the barrel. Im gonna try these in my 5" as well. I did discover that these projectiles were finicky on the loads used but once you hit the sweet spot they were great.

The 38 +p load i settled on gave me 1.55" center to center 5 shot groups.

The 357 mag loads were better at 1.10"

Thats honestly the best i can do from such a short barrel. I was shooting from a sitting position using my knee for support.
