    Yes, it is another DA six. I liked the first one so when this one turned up it was natural. I found it at a gun shop(he also has a pawn shop associated with the store) that usually handles single action revolvers and lever guns for cowboy style...

    P&P--I remembered your warning about not pulling the trigger when disassembled from my other thread and was careful not to do so. Thanks for the warning. It may be possible that this one has been polished at some time in the past. That, or just...

    I recently purchased a Ruger Service Six for cheap because it had not been properly taken care of. Apparently, it had developed a patina of rust which whoever owned it had used steel wool to remove. It isn't a pretty gun by any stretch of the...

    Mine is like yours as far as the fitting goes. I did have a beavertail safety fitted along with the requisite hammer. I also had an adjustable trigger installed. Those are the only modifications I had done to it. That service safety did eat my...

    That is a typical problem for revolvers. The recoil tries to pull the bullets out of the case. Sometimes they will move far enough to bind the action. The S&W models 27 and 28 used to do this because of their shorter cylinders.

    Yes it does. That said, I think that load is suspect since newer manuals don't suggest anything near that as being a max load. The Lyman 49th manual lists 5.7grains of Unique as max for a 120 grain boolit.

    This^^^^^ is what I do to check barrel dimensions. I also see what diameter boolits will fit through the cylinder throats.

    One of the reasons to work up to the load you want to use by starting low is right there. Making a cartridge/boolit combination work in different chambers can be tricky as far as OAL goes. 9mm chambers being so inconsistent, is a major reason I...

    In my experience the indexing on the LCCT is easily adjusted and doesn't move after being set unless the turret is jammed somehow when it is being rotated by the rod. I did that once by improperly adjusting the bracket for the safety prime. Just...

    I would occasionally have a rub mark(not really deformed but noticeable) on the edge of the meplat when using RNFP in my 45ACP. Never got any setback though. I wondered about that when I saw the mark and tested several cartridges. Ramson222----...

    I am using Lee dies and using the expander that comes with them. I haven't had any issues with getting boolit bases swaged smaller but I water quench my boolits from the mold and get a bit more hardness than some use. I use range scrap with one...

    I shoot roughly 250 rounds per week of 38 special, 9mm, 40S&W, or 45ACP. I load on a Lee Classic Cast turret press. I use on press priming and on press powder measure(Lee Pro Auto Disk) and have results that satisfies my needs. I get 150 rounds per...

    I suspect the manufacturer took into account that you would be coating the boolits with either powder coat or High Tek since that is what the boolit is designed for. I'll bet they are the right size when coated. You didn't post a measurement of one...
