Charles, You and I have done and do the same thing. But I'll wager we both grew up and started shooting and hand loading long before Al Gore invented the internet. . . . .

Re: Reloading Question

I use the small rifle primers in .357 loads all the time. No problems.

However, you cannot use large rifle primers in pistol cases. The large rifle primer cup is deeper.

Re: 5.5" redhawk article

Mine shoots a bit high with my Skeeter loads and not too bad considering the weight of the trigger. That’s 7 rounds because I had an extra. Might need to file just a bit off the top of the rear sight blade.
