    Many of the newer Alliant powders, like BE-86 and Power Pistol, both meter better and burn cleaner than the classic powder choices.

    For "hot" .38spl I like Power Pistol powder. It is similar in burn rate to Unique but burns much cleaner; I tend to use it as a replacement for Unique for that reason, particularly with revolvers...

    Just got my second gun in from Buds. It's serial number is 634 higher than the first one I received, and the front sight on this gun is aligned correctly. Trigger pull is heavy and stacks, but a...

    I used H4227 with Hornady 180gr .358 spitzer bullets. Because I was using it for silhouette competition, and I could get similar performance on the steel targets with the .357 Maximum, I chose the...

    Using Unique would account for the obnoxious blast. Although the blast from my 7.5" .357 Max is not annoying, I own that revolver primarily because I love Ruger single actions and any true Ruger fan...

    Ejection problems with bolt action .22's, in my experience, are caused mainly from a lack of cleaning and the soft brass and dirty ignition of .22lr ammunition. Keep the extractor clean and free of...

    Shoot it first, if it doesn't work send it back to Ruger. Chances are if there is a manufacturing defect it will appear in the first few hundred rounds. Beyond that, all the new Ruger revolvers I...

    It's possible to get the 686 "+" without the lock, and with the hammer-mounted firing pin. I've had two of them. The 7-round cylinder was added a few engineering changes before the internal lock.

    I've found the birdshead to be more difficult to control than the plow-handle grip frames; it tends to shift in my hand under recoil. The hammer pictured on that gun also is not ideal for use with...

    The surface treatment on that gun is the same type of "case coloring" Ruger has offered for about the past 25 years in the Vaquero line. It is not a true bone charcoal color case hardening, but...

    I have had all three of the revolvers you list, and still have a 3" 317. The 317 was the hardest to shoot because the DA trigger pull is much heavier than the gun itself; it is a joy to carry, but...

    I would buy a GP-100 in 22lr over any current production S&W M617. The GP-100 22's I've handled have all been well put together, aside from the usual sharp edges I've encountered on almost every...
