often are more accurate with the regular 22 cylinder but each gun has different likes and dislikes. About the only thing I seen with the mag cylinder in is way more noise. Just as guns like different things so do people, so try a box of mags.

I had one of those when I was in HS. Had lots of fun plinking in the backyard after school with the neighbor kid. It disappeared about a year after I graduated HS, and I've always suspected him of taking it, since he was the only person outside of family who knew where I kept it, and nothing else was missing.
But it was fun to shoot, while it lasted.

jj,
I have a weakness for H&R convertibles.
Total of 9 different pieces, including 5 model 686's.
One of every barrel length offered, 4.5", 5.5", 7.5", 10", and 12"
2 model 649's, 1 model 650, and 1 model 676.
The long rifle cylinder never gets put in any of my H&R's.
I think the revolvers all shoot a little better using WMRF, but I am not good enough for the difference to really matter!
I really don't shoot much anymore,so the price doesn't matter to me.
I'm a big fan of the 22 mag, so, that is what I usualy shoot.
If I still went out plinking, I would be shooting mostly lr because I can't afford to shoot up a brick or 2 of 22 mag in an afternoon.
Here's a couple pics

Model 686 4.5" 1980




Model 686 5.5" 1980




Model 686 7.5" 1980




Model 686 10" 1982

Yeah,
They aren't real comfortable to shoot off hand! They do shoot very well from a rest though!
Plus the fact that they always attract a lot of attention.
As far as ammo goes, it's like any other 22.
They all like thier own ammo.
If you want to get serious, buy a box of every different kind you can, and take it to the range.
You never know, yours may like the cheapest bulk ammo you can find, or it may not like anything but CCI or Remington Supreme.
For most hunting or plinking, just about anything will probably be acceptable, unless you decide to do some target shooting, and if that is the case, you probably won't be shooting a model 686 any way!

Here's pics of my last 2 convertibles

High Standard High Sierra 1975



H&R model 676 12" 1980

JJ,
Nice!
Welcome to the world of H&R.
Is that a 4.5", or a 5.5" barrel?
The 4.5" models are a little scarce, not rare, but not seen as often as the 5.5" models.
Thanks for posting the pic.
Enjoy!
