    Shooting .38s feels like shooting a K-22. .357s felt like .38s out of a K-frame.
    Keep your hands to yourself, leave other people's shit alone, and be kind to one another. In other words, do not do unto others what is hateful to yourself.

    The first time I fired a 148 grain wadcutter out of an N-Frame Smith, I thought it was squib until I saw the hole in the paper.
    I was into 10mm Auto before it sold out and went mainstream, but these days I'm here for the revolver and epidemiology information.

    One of the factory cases (Remington range ammo) split during the rangr trip:

    I can’t remember the last time I had a non-reloaded case rupture. It was part if the load I bought when Wally-Woild got out of the ammunition business.

    I once bought a batch of once fired Remington nickle brass. The necks split a lot when belling to reload and I had splits down the side like yours. Maybe a bad batch of brass?

    Remington brass is softer and I've found it prone to splitting also. Prefer Federal brass or Starline when I can find it. Remington doesn't have the longevity of Federal or Starline.

    The Blue Forum gurus say that the gun is circa 1973.

    Stephanie,

    No wonder I got a nostalgic twinge with every picture you post of you M28-2. When I started the academy in August of '73 the Sheriff's Department required us to purchase our own handguns (revolver in those days). After trying to get them to approve a 5" M27-2 (I was a Skeeter Skelton fan) then a 3.5" M27-2 (who wouldn't try) I ended up buying a brand new, in the box 4 inch M28-2...shipped in 1973...to meet their 4" DA 38 Spl/357 Mag requirement.

    I ordered a set of Ahrends Retro Combat grips for it.
