I'm looking to replace a Model 28, 4" that I lost almost 30 years ago to an Ex. Don't miss her but I sure miss my 357! I haven't kept up on the newer models and the price of these 2 used are running pretty close. I'd like to go with a 6" just because I'm anal about accuracy up to 50 - 75 yards or so, I like tight groups! No plans on hunting with it, it's primarily for target practice and self defense should the need ever arise. I used to do my own hot loads and may get back into that too and what about deer hunting or is that not being realistic? Thoughts and opinions on either?
