    I had a 640-1 that took a .359 gage pin in all its throats, and my GP100 MC takes .3585. They both leaded horribly with .357 Precision Delta wadcutters.

    I think there's more to it than that. There's certainly a factor that it can't gain traction because of the small number of people willing to have a flash-bang go off in their hands while shooting a...
