    After running about 30 rnds out of it with LY 358429 loaded "short" I have concluded that it feeds well but is not anywhere near as consistently accurate as it is loaded crimped in the crimp groove (1.660). May single load for hunting.

    One last thing, (AFAIK), this gun shoots and feeds LY 358429 well at oal of 1.580 which is crimp at forward edge of front driving band in .357 brass. The above report was with the same boolit loaded longer and single loaded I see I didn't say that...

    Last monday, I purchased a new Remlin 1894cs .357 from my LGS, that I asked them to look for. I inspected it and, except for the finish on the wood, it looked good. The wood looked like a nice piece of walnut with very little finish on it. The wood...
