I have a 4" 686 and much prefer round butt grips on it. I took off a pair of conversion grips and installed round butt. Of course I not too good a shot anyway.

Carried my SP101 for almost 25 years. 3 or 4 years ago
bought my son's LEO backup AirWeight when they switched
to G43. 14 oz loaded vs 30 loaded with the 101. The SW is
a nice IWB every day carry.

I have been churning out the .38 handloads lately!

Mild charge of Bullseye and a cast 158 gr semi-wadcutter.

Very traditional 38 load, and they're working out just fine. I really enjoy loading, and shooting, the 38's.

Now and again this little S&W gets some 357's, but not often.

The magna style stocks on your gun now were designed to be more comfortable by creating a wider surface at the backstrap thereby making more surface contact with the web of the hand. Unfortunately many after-market grip makers don't get that and make their grips very narrow at the back.

Yes, I like the way those grips fit my hand. The revolver points and shoots real well for me with the factory grips.

Guy for years I shot a 158 RNFP with 3 grains of Bullseye
for my standard load. I then bumped that to 3.5 grains.

Just loaded 250 of the 158 cast lead SWC bullets over 3.5 grains of Bullseye.

Looking forward to shooting them up, and loading 250 more!

I've got 750 left in the bag of bullets I bought.

I like that same load but use a 150 grain 358477 bullet.
When the Bullseye is gone I have a lot of HP38 to use at about 4 grains a pop.

Same load I've used for years until my discovery of Universal and 4gr. Both the same speed but the latter burns much cleaner. But yeah, if I compared all I've ever loaded, I believe it would be about 5 to 1 of .38Spl to all others. And you're right, it's an easy and enjoyable load to make and shoot. Reckon that's why I've got about a dozen moulds in that caliber. Have fun Guy!

I learned that I have NEVER run that load across a chronograph!

Will have to take care of that problem someday.

But, deer season starts Saturday, so I'm more focused on scoped, bolt-action hunting rifles right now...

My son and I are heading out to check the zero on our rifles soon. He said something about me buying him a late breakfast first?
