Hi, I am looking for a good load to use with my S&W 686 - 6" barrel .357 Mag. These days, it is hard to find the best selections of components for most loads; primers, powders, bullets. And this is true whether you are purchasing online or at your local gun store. Sometimes you just take what you can get in the door and try it. So I have some 140 gr Hornady FTX bullets, that I would like to try. Here is the rub... the pistol powders I have right now are Ramshot True Blue, Hodgdon Tite Group, Win 231. It might also be worth noting that I have only small pistol primers (not magnum); Alcan Max-Fire Small Pistol, Federal GM100M (match) and CCI 500. The purpose of this ammo is mostly for self defense. So two questions: will these primers work all right with the .357 Mag? Which other combination would you recommend? Thank you for the information!
