    I've got an LCR in 357....I'll give this a go ;). Was my first gun I bought myself! It is not a comfortable gun to shoot but tolerable for its use case. On the same note my LCP isn't really that fun to shoot either.

    Is the barrel .451 as well when slugged? If the 2 matched that's what I would size to. Otherwise DougGuy can probably set you up with a .452 cylinder.

    Nope, ran em back through the 380 sizing die cause I thought of that too. Maybe I just left them in the oven too long, was only a small batch so I think I'll nix that and try again with new brass.
