Man, that must be interesting to shoot out of a gun that short.

Agreed - and people thought the standard .357 load (158 gr @ 1400) was hot! I'd almost be afraid to fire that in a Smith, or any gun so lightweight!

I had never heard of that load until a few days ago. I told my fiance's BIL about it because he loves to experiment with his Super Redhawk...I'd post a screen shot of his response but it'd be too much to edit on my phone ha....it basically amounted to ~"better have a d@m good mfing gun...." and when I mentioned I hardly notice a difference in +p in .38 or +p+ in 9mm, but a .44 is a whole nother animal, his response was ~"it's the point between a safe *boom* and a *boom* f***! Where's my my fingers" hahaha....probably an exaggeration....but I wouldn't be running anything that hot out of a sub-standard revo, or anything light weight

Have you shot that ammo in your S&W 629 ?
According to Buffalo Bore's web site they DO NOT want you to use a S&W.
Be careful.

I only have 3 wheelguns at the moment, but my SP101 is my favorite, by far. Eventually, it'll be on its way to Gemini Customs for some upgrades.

S&W model 19. Last of the everything you need in a revolver and nothing you don't S&W's.

The model 19 was the epitome of a good looking revolver with a great trigger right out of the box. Regards 18DAI

I love my S&W 66. Great weight for carry and although it probably wont hold up to many 357 rounds I really don't plan on shooting that many. IDPA and hunting carry gun mainly.

M28-2 4" barrel Highway Patrolman. Heavy as a nutcracker but you can fire 158gr. 1400 fps loads out of it and it barely recoils.

Tough call. As of right now:
1-my 6"Colt Python
Close #2-6"S&W 686-4
Equally close #3-S&W 6" 29-2 or 4" 28-2

Not sure what the lineup will be when my pre-27 comes back from S&W.

My pre-lock Smitty 686...

Wide hammer, trigger, bead blast finish and some Ahrend's grips. Pretty much everything I want, nothing I don't.

My favorite is my single six. Nothing like ringing a six inch steel plate at 100 yards. I can't do that as readily with any revo in my hands.

While I am tempted to say the Model 27.
My model 14 is the most accurate revolver I have, with a super action.

As of right now.

I would have to say that it is likely one of my my model 57s, my model 58, one of my seven model 29s, one of my model 28s, or my model 67. Then again It might be my model 66, my model 15, my model 586, or my model 686. Then again it might just be one of my model tens.

I will get back to you on this.
