Having started my law enforcement career with sixshooters, I still have a soft spot for them. The Model 66 was much sought after in my day when they first appeared, and became a highly prized duty gun. You would be surprised at how accurate you can get with one, especially experimenting with different grain weights and loads. All .357's from Ruger and S&W are rifled around the 158 grain weight loads, since that was the original grain weight the caliber was developed in. However, guns are very much like people, meaning each is different and has its own preferences. For example, I just purchased a GP100 that I will post about later and it LOVED Remington 125 grain SJHP's. It did print very well with the heavier loadings but was just unreal with the lighter loads. What load are you using in that ole' Smith of yours?
