I have the 929 which is the 8 shot version. Your 986 will be a fine and accurate gun. Mine like a load of VhitaVhouri N 320 and 135 grain coated bullets. At 15 yards it prints into one ragged hole. At 25 yards of the bench I can keep them all in the 10 ring. The 986 has the same 1-10 twist barrel and will be great with 115-125-135 and 147 grain bullets.
