Here is a link to an interesting article by Thomas Tabor on the .357 Magnum cartridge.
Here is a link to the Wikipedia article on this excellent cartridge which started the “Magnum era” of handgun ammunition.
The S&W 686 is a stainless steel revolver chambered in .357 Magnum and available in a number of variants including 6 and 7 shot versions and barrel lengths from 2.5 inch snubby to an 8.5 inch beast.
A good balance between muzzle velocity, accuracy and speed is the 6 inch version as shown here:
Product specs can be found on the 686 page on the S&W website

The club’s annual ANZAC shoot was held Sunday 24th April 2016, kicking off at 1pm.
Members brought along their WW II or earlier bolt action iron sighted military rifle and 20 rounds of ammo.
There was also a pistol stage for WW II or earlier iron sighted military pistols.
Here are some piccies from an earlier ANZAC shoot.
Paul M took out first place with his .223 Mini-14 laying down an accurate barrage of fire which the deer targets could not withstand.
Steve R took second place, demonstrating what a .303 1943 Enfield No.4 Mk1(T) could do by putting three rounds in the neck of the 100m deer target in a smidgeon over one inch, using elbows and sling off the bench.
Mark L took third place with a neck group slightly larger than Steve’s with his .223 Remington 700.
The furthest deer target/gong was untouched until Duncan M took up his 6.5×55 Swede and smacked it with his first shot… With open sights… Legend.
