I just recently started reloading. This is my Smith & Wesson 686P Accuracy shooting my first 357 Magnum rounds. The brass was new Star Line purchased from MidWayUSA. The bullets were Hornady 158 Gr XTP jacketed hollow points. The powder was 10 grains of Accurate No. 9. This produced a mild load with velocity just over 1000 Ft per second. The distance to the target was 8 yards (7.3 meters) and I shot 25 rounds that were pleasant to shoot and fairly accurate.
