    Went to the range with the Bulldog tried 200 gr Lee rnfp,Miha 227 gr rnfp, Lee 255 gr Swc, Keith 250 gr Swc and a 230 gr commercial TC. All were loaded with 4.0 gr Bullseye, 4.0 gr Trail Boss and 4.0gr ETR-7. I put on Pachmayr grips on the Bulldog. My conclusions, 1. 170 round is way too much for my hands, 2. The Lee 200 gr with 4.0 gr etr-7seemed the most accurate. I finally checked the throats and they are .431 so I’m going to try the Lee 200 gr unsized they run .432 so I’m hoping these will look better on paper with the ETR-7 with 4.0 gr and 3.5 gr and I’ll see how they look. Thanks for all the input comments and advice. I’ll keep you informed, Tim

    Went to the range today, got a load that shots to point of aim at 50 ft. I used the MiHec 227 gr rnfp and 3.4 gr of ETR-7. Nice gentle recoil and good accuracy. I’ll also try the large HP version of this boolit also. Tim

    What holster are you guys using for the older (3" barrel) Bulldogs?

    Mine is a Bianchi pancake, marked small revolver. Iíll see if I can find a model number or something in a bit.

    Edit: Itís a Bianchi Shadow #8. I bought the pistol in Ď83, so the holster is probably that old, too, when Bianchi was making good stuff.

    Boy scattersht I like that holster. something I don't think mentioned yet the Bulldog will fit nicely in a boot top. Not as easily reached as a hip holster, but very concealable.
    The Bulldog will also fit nicely in a Carhartt vest pocket too! They are actually about as easy to conceal as a smaller S&W J frame or the older Colt DS.
