    It is a full sized round. This is a serious hunting round for a handgun. I have shot it with 44 Mag equivalent loads for practice. I saved the full power stuff for hunting.

    I've compressed hundreds of 70 gr ffg and fffg BP loads in several different makes of 45-70 brass with a compression die and have never bulged the case. If you are using the bullet to compress the BP then you are probably swaging the the bullet out...

    Thank you - I was trying to remember the name of Ft. Knox. I remember as a kid visiting and I could climb completely inside the muzzle of one of those guns. That was a long time ago - I doubt they are as accessable now as they were then.

    Those Altamont grips you showed above are BEAUTIFUL, no two ways about it. To each his or her own, I say. My two favorite 38 Specials are a 1960s S&W M&P x 5" and a late 40s Colt OMT x 6". Both wear Pachs because I'm a Philistine :-) but both...

    With a Red Dot sight,,, If you can see the target you can easily put the dot on it and pull the trigger. I have done simulated 'Night Missions" in my yards hunting coons and other vermin. The red dot sights work well. Randy
