    I'm buying a s&w 67, what is a good practice load. Our public range is a 25 target.

    .38 Special 158 grain lead round nose.

    .38 Special 148 grain mid-range wad-cutter.

    Both are low recoil, and very accurate.

    I am very, very satisfied with the accuracy and performance of THIS LOAD. Very little recoil, clean burning, accurate, and inexpensive.

    See if you can find some commercially loaded Cowboy Action loads. They're very light and accurate.
