The M66 by the bed is loaded with .38+P & sits next to a .45ACP.

I don't ever want to deal with a Big Dog magnum load indoors without ears on.

Not to mention cleaning powder burns & chunks of BG off my hallway walls....:eek:

I would be using a Smith and Wesson 686 6" barrel for home defense

I as well.

And I want .357 in it. In the rare event I have a break-in, I don't want any doubts.

Would the fine folks here at the revolver section say the .357 Magnum has too much recoil/flash to be optimal for self defense?

No.

If you are worried about 125gr loads, then use the 158gr loads the cartridge was designed around.
