Some chrono data for comparison

Bear in mind all guns listed are .357's

The load is 4.0gr of 231 behind a 158gr LRN bullet in .38spl cases.

firearm--------- average velocity (fps)

Taurus 605 2" ----------- 738

Dan Wesson model 15 2 1/2"---- 756

Dan Wesson 4"
same gun, different barrel --- 746 (this changes with .357's)

S&W 686 6" --------- 796

This was a load that made minor power factor when I used the 686 for USPSA competition and was plenty accurate. I just happened to chrono it in all my .357's so it seemed appropriate to share it here.
