Has anyone used 55gr ballistic tips in a 1 in 8" barrel? Is this to fast of a twist rate for that Bullet?
It is just right. Shoot the snot out of them. The speed is not too high in that chambering. We shoot them in the 6X6.8 and it is much faster. The 58's would give you peace of mind if you are real concerned but not necessary.
The best firearm for self defense? Any loaded one will do.
