Recently crossed a gun off my bucket list, a 6" prelock 617 with the 10-shot stainless cylinder. Had a similar 4" gun years ago but let it go and have wanted a 6" model for a long time. Should make a great understudy to a pair of 6" 686 models. Shoots pretty good with CCI Mini Mags but will need to dig into my ammo stash and try some different loads with a chronograph. Sounds like a fun range day is in my future.
