    Very nice. I'm a big fan of SAs myself and especially Rugers. All of mine are either .45 or .44Mag. I've wanted a .357 for a while.

    These are on my short list. I do not know if I can justify a flat top .44 or a Single Seven (.327) first.

    I got the Single Seven as soon as I say the aluminum frame version. When I have it on the trail I've been keeping 32 h&r rounds in it. Lighter and thinner than this one. Hard to choose.

    For typical everyday Ammo I use a 240 gr hard cast and 7.5 grains of unique for either gun. I am using bayou Bullets coated Bullets wing good success , no leading and as accurate as any.

    My wife carries the Bisley model whilst huckleberry picking with 290 gr hardcast at 1000 FPS. I replaced the base pin and enameled the front sight bright red- very handy and versatile gun. I have a 250 truncated come mold inbound as we speak with which to experiment, I’m looking for a little less recoil (for her) while still retaining decent terminal effects. I’ve read, from Brian Pierce IRRC, that going beyond 250 grains in this cartridge raises pressures faster than velocities

    Sounds like a killer gun! Would love to see pics of that one.

    The pin is from Bowen Classic Arms and requires fitting to install- greatly improved the lockup. It also features a screw which sets in a dimple in the barrel making it virtually impossible for the pin to fly out under recoil.
