After having the opportunity to fire a friend's 686SSR from the Performance Center, I went ahead and ordered one for myself. It is a modern but attractive and businesslike looking revolver with good balance, a wonderfully smooth trigger and point of aim accuracy. I am firing handloaded , jacketed 125 grain 38 spl +p and 357 loads out of it. I am an experienced handloader. I have noticed that it occasionally will not light off a magnum primer (WSPM). These primers seem to have a heavier cup than standard primers do. This may be a function of the light action trigger/hammer that this revolver came with. Anyone with similar experience? Back to S & W or home fix? Thanks!
