Stainless Ruger Security Six, three inch barrel, fixed sights. I carry it in an old thumb break holster, behind my right hip. Medium build.  It is double action greased lighting, anything from rattlesnakes, to white tailed deer.

If you are not living on the edge, you are taking up too much space.



Lead, follow, or get the hell out of the way.



You can lead a fool to talk, but you can't make him think.

There are damm few problems that can't be fixed, with a long handled shovel and a thirty ought six.

For factory ammo I like a 158 gr JHP. For reloads I like a 158 gr Keith style semi wad cutter. I haven't purchased any factory ammo in twenty five years.

Be very careful with spent brass.  You have no idea what its history is.  Brass that has been loaded real hot, brass that has been reloaded multiple times, especially magnum brass, can become brittle and can split when fired.  Really no idea which ones are going to blow up in your face, even if loaded moderately.  Brass picked up on the range is always suspect.

I can't say how to test brass to see if they are safe, I don't think there is any way.

When I went into reloading, I read everything I could on the subject and approached it very, very cautiously.

Knowing it's history has been my rule, so buying new - factory ammo or empty cases.   Shy

I started reloading when I was 12YO - still got all my bits (knock on wood) Tongue

Brass stretches after shooting. Inspect length and thickness and adjust before reloading.
Addictive knife buying isn't guided by logic.

Ok good to know JB. I have a bunch of experienced older guys (one is a collector and instructor; use to have a gun shop), and the one I got my gun from, has been doing his own re loading for 30 years...they say they will teach me the tricks of the trade and safety, once I go get all the equipment..I need special dies and a machine of some sorts....

I keep meaning to go buy it, but there ain't enough time! Its like there is so much I want to do and SO little time and money for it! Between the bow and arrow building and the survival board game and work and home and trying to get out and camp....my god...I am what Curtis would have called busier than a 1 legged man at an ass kicking competition....

not complaining at all---on the contrary--my life is full of amazing things...but just wish I could do more! Starting a backyard forge, more flintknapping, making a dug out canoe, leather clothing, more braintanning, adventure trips ect are all things id like to do before croaking!

All of the above is good information. I have over one thousand rounds of .44 mag brass, that has been in nearly constant use since the 1980's, when it shows signs of splitting I throw it away. In my Redhawk I have split brass clear down to the rim, with no damage to the gun. All I have ever used for powder is Unique, and I know how it acts.

When I carried my 3in Redhawk every day for protection, I loaded 10gr of Unique behind a 240gr hard cast Keith style bullet. I loaded this in .44 special brass, because it is shorter and clears the cylinder when you hit the plunger. Making for very fast reloads, with speed loaders. Please do not copy any of my loads in anything other than a Ruger Redhawk in good condition. Those light weight toy Smith's simply won't hold up. Oh, hell did I just say that out loud?
