Re: Favorite Rimfires?

I really should shoot a .22 more.

Typically I shoot on Saturday mornings but I have limited time so I have concentrated on the bigger guns.

I think I would be better off slowing down and shooting 50 rounds through the.22 first for accuracy and then shoot 10-20 rounds through a bigger sixgun.

Pretty much the perfect load for a .38 Special.

Re: How About 1 Caliber and Done?

I’ve thought long and hard about this….yeah I know, I’m not that bright. I can narrow it down to one cartridge and one load. I could get by quite happily with the.45 Colt and the factory Remington 250 grain load. The box says that it clocks 750 fps but in my Colt it averages 830 in my 4 3/4 inch Colt.

Bullseye is my go to powder for the .38 Special and will be as long as I can get Bullseye.

But I don’t try to go that low on powder charges.

The idea is not original to me. I saw an article that Brian wrote right after the Ruger factory.44 Special Blackhawks came out.

He started off shooting 100 rounds of the same load (240 gr XTP and 19 gr of H110) through his test gun before doing accuracy tests.

I really like the lanyard loop.

I’d like to find a set of original wood grip panels for the Speed Six.

The Pachmars are comfortable but too large for a revolver of this size.

I also intend to go back to wood factory grip panels on the Redhawk.
