Re: 44 SPECIAL USERS - A COUPLE OF QUESTIONS

Six, the converting from 6 to 5 shot is more hand( pawl) work than anything else. The steps get changed to lift the ratchet on the cylinder. Pretty simple.

44 special is just that- special. Everyone should have one. That new Ruger listed on another post would be the ticket!
