    This is why I have a Colt Python in 6 Inch Barrel Length for CCW in my shoulder holster with 3 Dade Speed Loaders stoked with Remington 125 GR Golden Saber Bullets. Got Speed Loaders, if they are Not Dade Speed Loaders then you have to do the push and then twist to get them into the gun. Me, I just have to push into the cylinder and close and fire! Yes the movie "Magnum Force" bought a lot of guns and those of us who could find Dade Screw Machine Products got the reloaders way before the other folks made them.

    627 is the way to go

    I went to my LGS to purchase 4" S&W 686+, before the shop owner showed me the 627 5" performance center revolver. The 627 is a very sweet gun but costs about 50% more than a 686+. I decided to go for it on March 3rd. After purchasing the gun I decided to buy 500 share of SWHC Smith & Wesson Holding Corp which is up ~16% since I purchased the gun so I basically got the gun for free and still own 500 shares of SWHC,

    Ive put 1000s of 357 magnum loads through my j-frame 357 magnum (60-15), including some hot ones. Ive had the gun for about 9 years, Mechanically it works fine, and the cylinder is tight, no play. The gun isn't as shiny as it was brand new, but that's because its been used a lot.

    I've got no use for a 357, so, if I'm going to go with an N frame revolver, it's gonna start with a 4.
