I just bought a Smith and Wesson 686 6" .357 only because it was a smokin hot deal. I had planned to get a bolt action next but I haven't settled on which caliber. A guy at work has a Winchester 70 in .270 and wants a revolver real bad. I'm not sure I want .270. I've been told .300 win mag is a great round along with .243. I'm also looking to start reloading so that's another factor I need to consider. What say you guys? The 686 has had a trigger job, less than 50 rounds through it, two speed loader, the original box from 1990ish, the original wood grip and hogue rubber grip, and a carry sleeve. I really like the gun, but it was kind of too good an opportunity to pass up. I haven't seen the rifle yet but he tells me it's in good shape.
