    Yeah, the wood grips in the classic S&W style were a must have and the 6" barrel was preferred. The Hogue grips are great if you're shooting quite a few rounds of .357 in one day, but just don't quite have the same 'eye candy' appeal IMHO. The bonus is having to work up loads for 2 more calibers.

    Going to shoot primarily 38 Special and mix it up with a bit of 357 Mag every now & then. I've already started reading up on the various bullet choices there are for those two. Caliber is the wrong word choice, my bad. Two different cartridges.

    I thought thatís what you meant, but wanted to make sure.

    About 10 years ago, I quit shooting 38ís out of my 357, and 44 special out of my 44 mag. I decided to do this after talking to some people and digging around online. Itís been really nice, just keeping up with one type of brass per revolver. I just load 38 special loads in 357 magnum brass, and have great light plinking loads. This way clean up of the cylinder is easier and no carbon ring build up.

    That makes quite a bit of sense. 357 Mag cases are a bit hard to come by these days, so I already bought some 38 special a few months back in anticipation of adding a 357 revolver. Who knows, I may end up with another in 38sp only!

    Iíve done this same thing from the start. Never had a use for loading any special brass in both my revolvers. Light loads load and shoot just fine in magnum brass. Got a few buckets of .38 special brass around because I use to shoot a fair bit of it, but never been reloaded.
