    What kind revolver was it? If it was a lightweight small-frame revolver, I wouldn't blame you.

    686-7 is ftw with .357s. You can def feel that it kicks more than .38s, but it isn't bad at all

    get a .357 and shoot 38 Special

    Save the .357 for home invaders and the random bear attack

    keep some empty .357 cases around to clean the cylinder out, though. I've shot nothing but .38 in mine for a few years, when I went to load it with .357 (even though I thought I kept it clean), they wouldn't go in all the way. :o

    I love taking a buddy to the range and handing him my j-frame to have some fun with, only buried in cylinder is a 357 instead of a 38.

    Next time start with a .44 mag, then .357 is pussy.


    And being able to use 38 and 357 ftw. Especially since you can ususally use the same reloading dies too.

    my father in law has a model 27, and it too is accurate as fuck. you don't even have to try with it. it is simply point and shoot. i love it. my next piece will be a 686, only because i can't seem to find a good 27. plus with a 686 it would be nice to be a lil' bit different then his gun

    A friend of mine loves his .357 snub nose....not sure if that kicks more or less than what you shot.

    I only get tired of shooting .357 partway into the second 50rd box w/ my 4" GP100.

    If you're going to load 357 for self-defense, for God's sake practice with 357 somewhat regularly...

    .
    It's not impossible, though. I've even read of someone, IIRC, winning IDPA nationals a few years ago running a 4" k-frame and .357. why, I have no idea; it's easy to make the power floor with a soft .38. But he did it :dunno:
