Re: 357 Maximum??
I went ahead and purchased the gun and have been impressed with it, I picked up the frame and barrel with a scope for about the same price as i was seeing used frames for so I figured if I didn't like it I could get another barrel and not be out much
I haven't had much time to shoot it, I got some brass and picked up some 158 grain Hornady XTP's for it, I loaded up 25 rounds and headed to the range to see what it would do, it only took a couple shots to get it dialed to where I wanted it and I had 2 groups of 3 shots that where under an inch at 100 and 3 other 3 shot groups that where right at 1 ¼, that was my very first time ever shooting a scoped handgun and the more I shot it the tighter I was getting the groups, after I was pretty comfortable with my groups at 100 I went and set some clay pigeons at 200 and it only took 2 shots to figure out where to hold and I hit 4 in a row missed once then hit the last one in the 6 shot
So I called it good went home loaded up some more bullets and took my little brother out the following day to see how well he could shoot it, his first 3 shots where about 1 ½ group but then he shot 2 more groups just under 1 inch at 100, so I got him off the bench and had him shoot from positions that where more realistic in a hunting situation, he shot prone and off shooting sticks and kept about a 2 inch group at 100
This last Saturday he filled his extra doe tag with a well placed quartering away shot at 122 yards, she ran about 80 yards but the XTP did a great job and left a good entrance and exit, he was one happy kid
