Default My new to me acquisition S&W model 58

I've been looking for one of these forever. Grips number to the gun, no box no docs. Patience is a virtue. Didn't buy it for the $97.50 I should have(back in the day) but, got the deal I was looking for. Put a BK grip adapter on her and she shoots where aimed.

Do you have a load figured out?
I had to look it up, no wonder the cylinder and barrel looked HUGE.

IMHO, these guns were designed for the more moderate load(at the time) so, I figured about 7.5 grains of Unique under a cast 210-220 grain hard cast SWC should closely compare to that and what I shot in it to get my feet wet. No chronograph with me but, I'd guess a little under 900 fps.

Them 4 inch N frames with Magna stocks sure have an "All about business" look to 'em.
