I have one in 6" with the silhouette front sight. It has 4 adjustable positions that allow you to change range quickly. I am going to use it for hunting if I can get better with it at the club running deer shoot.
But long story short. I use the 158 gr JSP from American Eagle.
[/color]MY FAVORITE RE-LOADS are all lead swc 158 gr . cast as hard as i can get them and then with an appropriate dose of 2400 , 110, or such . then amount of power varies with the intended use . this is much easier on the pocket book and you get exactly what you want . ask some of your older hunting/shooting buddies . re-loading is not hard and excellent ammo can be produced if you follow the rules . if you work on your car you know that things must be done properly to work . re-loading is the same . i think that i can ( after all these years) do as well and better than most factory stuff .
ELMER KEITH is the man i try to follow .
....for shooting bowling pins and targets, Remington 125 gr. SJHP cause they're cheap at the local wal-mart......$36 for a box of 100. I also shoot the Blazers 158gr. SJHP when I can find them cause they're even cheaper. For hunting whitetails I prefer either Winchester 158gr. SJSP or Federal Fusion 158grn's. All shoot well out of my 686 6''.
My Favorite reload is 15.0 grains of IMR-2400 over a 158 Grain Jacketed Hollow Point bullet using a CCI Primer and a heavy crimp. This is no wimpy load so work up to it slow starting out at 14.0 Grains. Regards, Hammerdown
My standard load for more than 30 years was a 158gr semi wadcutter GC(358156) on top of 15 grains of 2400. I have since 2006 been using the Buffalo Bore heavy 357's 180 gr fngc.That is a scary load in a 357,scary but darned effective Doug
