    The main reason I bought a .357 is that I've always favored revolvers. Because the .357 also
    handles .38 loads, that's a nice option. The stopping power of .357 was another consideration.

    Sorry I haven't checked in for several days, lots of new info and perspectives.For the record,

    want a 686 w...

    Fresh to the forum, I have an old question (likely for many of you) regarding which load is
    preferable for self-defense for a S&W Model 60, 3-inch barrel, chambered in .38/.357 Mag. I've
