.38/.357 145 Gr. RN - Sized to .358 (Typical) Other sizes available upon request call or email for options.
An excellent mid weight bullet, Excellent bullet for USPSA, IDPA and ICORE, nice rounded nose and no shoulder makes for speedy reloads.
My shooting partner and I have experimented with a lot of bullets over the last 4 years looking for the best load for the S&W 929.
The 929 has a unique configuration the the barrel is standard .355" with a 1 in 10 twist but the cylinder throats can vary as large as .358.5". With standard size 9mm (.355"/.356") bullets there is a lot of instability induced before the bullet hits the forcing cone.
We found that the .358", 145gr coated bullet gave 2" to 2.5" groups at 25 yards from a Ransom rest with 5 different 929s (each 929 had significant variations in cylinder throat diameter).
Similar results were gotten with hard cast lead however the lube creates enough smoke to make fast target sight acquisition difficult especially at USPSA and IPSC matches. The coated bullets were far superior with virtually little or no smoke (depending on powder). Michael Fettes on 19th Nov 2020
