Thanks for all the help my friends. The reason I was asking was that I though I had read somewhere here that some folks used them for their SD loads. Not sure though cuz I`ve read so much here in the past days, things are starting to run together in mind. :loco:

Many hold the opinion that wadcutters cut a hole in tissue like they do in paper as opposed to wedging through tissue and letting it mostly close behind the bullet - the object being to cause more bleeding and faster incapacitation.

That of course doesn't take into consideration the major ripping of various hollow points, talon points, etc.

Yeah, as stated, if people are concerned about a HP not expanding, the could use WCs and get a minimum of .357" holes. Anymore, HP are designed to expand and low velocities of 38spc out of a 2" barrel. I would personally stick with modern HPs such as hydroshoks and Golddots.
