Would like to go with the majority's opinion of what is the best self defense (SD) ammo out there for a Ruger Security Six with 4" barrel in 357 Mag? Pistol is used for SD inside the home (mainly by my wife and 18-year old son) and there's also a G-17 9mm in another location and a shotgun.

Wife enjoys shooting 38's at the range and can easily handle 158-gr. +P SWCHP's at 890 fps. Thinking of having her tryout 125-gr. HP's in 357.

Please provide advice on any ammo available, even though we have the following ammo in stock:

* Federal 38 Special 158-gr. +P SWCHP's at 890 fps.
* Winchester 145-gr. Silvertips
* Hornady 357 Mag. 125-gr. XTP's.
* Speer 357 Mag. 125-gr. Gold Dots

Everyone's opinion counts! Thank-you in advance of your replies.

The Federal® ammo you cited in 38 Special is an EXCELLENT CHOICE. If using 357 Magnum let her try Remington® Golden Saber 125gr BJHP; a good load , accurate, & lower recoil.[/color]
