I was looking at one of the two loads from BB as a home defense load in my
4" gp100

38 Special 158 Grain LSWC-HP 1000fps, OR

357 Magnum 158 Grain JHP 1100fps

I want something with less flash and concussion than full-house .357 loads. Any thoughts on which would suit my needs best?

I'd use the 38 load. You aren't losing much compared to the 357.

Choose one of these loads in the flavor (i.e weight) of your choice

They have a similar load in .38 special as well.

I use the 38 Special 158 Grain LSWC-HP in my S&W 686

With the 357, it's slightly closer to the cylinder (~1/8"??) than the 38 so you might get slightly better accuracy.

Buffalo Bores 158gr LSWHP .38 load from a 2 3/4 inch Speed Six hits 1100 fps (I know cause I chroned it myself as well as from a 2 inch 64 which gets 1000 fps.)

So a 4 inch barrel will do even better!
