Been waiting, haggling, trying to get them to drop the price a tad (which I did) but still a little high, but I felt it worth it. $600 for a 586 no dash with box BUT with Pachmayrs and not the original grips but still a nice 6" 357 to go with my 4" 66-2 and my 2.5" 19-3

You don't see them all that often round these parts, so for that price and condition, it's not a bad deal in my opinion. It's a shame you don't have the original stocks, but much like getting a divorce, you can usually find a suitable replacement! ;) Seriously though, Pachs are great for shooting, don't toss them if you do find wooden shoes!

DID you use handloads? I prefer 158 SWC and have Bullseye, TiteGroup, Universal, 231 and Power Pistol

Yes. I think I only put one box of Federal 158 gr JSP through it.

Best cast bullet is RCBS 150 grain SWC. 13.5 gr 2400, WWSPP (not magnum). Shoots better than 357429 in my gun. Not a full power load but very accurate even at 100+ yards. I have had people ask to buy my gun after shooting it at 100 yards. All the cast bullets I've used were cast by me. I doubt it will perform as well with commercial cast bullets but I've been wrong before.

Best jacketed bullet is 125 gr Sierra JHP. 9.0 Unique, WWSPP (not magnum) This load is over max in the manuals. But not in my gun. Loud but hardly any recoil and very accurate at ranges under 50 yards (never shot it at longer ranges). I've also used the 140 grain Sierra JHP with a little less powder but I can't remember the charge.

I don't have much variety in loads because I found good loads so quickly I never looked any further.

Great addition to you 357 family. I ave used titegroup for usually my 38 special loads. I load a 148gr Berrys plated DEWC with 5 grains Unigue and is extremely accurate out to 75 yards (never tried any further. As far as 158 gr I like BE-86 (do not remember recipe as been a few years. Have a 160 grain Lead Kieth style bullet that use the 2400 with and it is very accurate. Good luck working up your favorite loads.

My first S&W revolver was a 586 that had been converted into a "Pinto" (with a stainless barrel and cylinder).

You did very well on your deal.
