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.

I was looking at one of the two loads from BB as a home defense load in my
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?
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!
