I just may have to pull off my 3rd Gen Python targets and try them on my Python.  They're on a birth year Official Police--6" nickeled .38.

As much as I hate the looks of Pachmayrs I have to admit they feel and shoot the best for me.  I just can't bring myself to do it... :P

Yup, I'd rather get punished by a piece of beautiful hard wood.......that came out wrong lol. But I'll leave it  :thumbsup:

Shot some 50+ year old .22 ammo out of a 40+ year old S&W -17.  This ammo was given to me years ago and it still shoots fine.

I dig these old 22lr revolvers. Who needs 10rds, when 6 looks that good :shaka: and no lock either :thumbsup:
I asked my co-worker about this and he swears by Anna Millers.

I don't eat these much because runny eggs causes me to have runny.....

I like Anna millers loco moco with a few mods.

Order: chili locomoco with fried rice. Over easy eggs. Like their brown gravy it's the dark kine not the light kind you get at l&l's.

Flamingo's pretty good too :thumbsup:

Group pic from sat. My smiths and Ruger, and my cousins 2 dan wessons. Man if I knew the steel side was going to open would have went that side. Only saw when we was driving out. Only had 5 cars over there.

Good note. Everything was 100% reloads and guns. Even my light striking 625, thanks to jc to coming through with a factory hammer spring and strain screw. Have it set to a little over 9 lbs :shaka: 500 rds 38+p and 100 rds 357 mag. 125 rds 45 acp out the 625. It was a good day :geekdanc:

Sad note. My beautiful spalted grips on my 681 chipped right a the corner of the frame at the square butt. I found the chip and glued it back on. There was just a little play in the grip and I guess it cracked under recoil shimmed the grip a little and. Now she is rock solid. Have to see what happens to the glue when I shoot again.

What's stamped above the triggerguard?  Which PD did it come from?

Stamped: gwinnett co.p.d

I installed the spring and strain screwin the 625 and set it 9lbs for now, hopefully that sets everything off. Thanks again :shaka:

Just picked it up and decided to detail clean it. When I cocked the hammer and looked down the frame found that it was pumped full of grease, paste thick. When I got it apart it was nasty. Before and after pics. Model 681 wearing spalted maple grips.

Agreed, because majority of HI voted for Biden.  I was expecting Trump to get at least 40% this year compared to 30% in 2016.

Hawaii is weird. No matter what my mom  hates donald trump with a passion. Because he talk "anykine stupid".

Heard from a RSO that there were 4 Kabooms at the range this weekend, from reloaded rounds.  Maybe from new reloaders dealing with the ammo shortage.

Was there any on sun? I was there from 730a.m to 11a.m on the target pistol side. None on that side during those hours that I'm aware of. Hopefully said persons and surrounding are alright. And lesser extent their firearms as after the elections perceived worth will skyrocket. If your in a tight spot financially it will be a seller's market.  :geekdanc:

My experience with primers being set too deep is extremely rare. It is is usually caused by using a pocket reamer that is not the type that keeps one from going too deep and being used too much. I have one of these and it is over 40 years old. Most pocket reamers are set so you cannot go too deep. I assume the primers used are of the correct size. If it turns out the primers are set too deep then I would discard the brass. There are also very hard primers such that a pistol may have difficulty striking it hard enough to set it off. For instance, someone may have used a small rifle primer that is designed for use in an AR type rifle that has a floating firing pin. Also, some European and Russian primers are known to be more difficult to set off. These primers use a much harder cup and some pistols may have a hard time properly striking them. One more thing I have noticed and that is Winchester primers have been less reliable than other brands. Winchester usually uses brass cups instead of the silver colored cups. I bought a case of them once and probably 5 or 6 out of every 1,000 never ignited even when hit well.

There is one other thing to consider and is something I have found to happen more often in revolvers, and that is a weak hammer spring or the hammer spring tension is set too soft. This happens sometimes when a revolver has had a trigger job and the trigger is set too light. It could be a light spring was put in or too light of a setting. With SA/DA revolvers, the hammer does not come back as far when shot in DA mode. If you cock the hammer and use it in SA mode it brings the hammer back farther allowing more energy to hit the primer than in DA mode. If the hammer spring is too weak, or the hammer spring tension is set too soft you will see light hammer strikes more often in DA mode as in SA mode. And that can happen in SA mode as well but is less likely. The S&W revolvers have a hammer spring tension screw that can and does back out during shooting and can cause light hammer strikes. It will be more noticeable in DA mode first and then you might start seeing it in SA mode. I have had it happen to almost every one of my S&W revolvers. It is an easy fix. Remove the grips and screw the tension set screw back in.

Overall I would say that primers being set too low is something to check but it is more likely one of the other things I mentioned. I would look at those things first such as harder primers and/or weaker hammer springs. It could also be a combination of these things as well.

One thing I learned to do during reloading is to look into every single case before setting the bullet. Make sure you have powder in there and that the powder is at the same level as all the other cases. This helps prevent squib loads.

I hope this helps!

Thanks for the insight. I ll pass it along to my cuz. and will check out the suggestions in a process of elimination. Can most likely rule out a weak hammer spring as all 3 revolvers set off the factory ammo we brought %100 , and the only way I run my revolver is with tension screw all the way in and loctited. I checked that they were still set that way when I cleaned them after the range.

Will be def checking out his pocket reamer and his primers. I think he bought winchester's. And he bought both the pistol primers and rifle primers so he could use them for double duty when it came to reloading 223. If time permits going to try those reloads next week.

Since he is a rookie reloader he is paranoid about everything. Double\triple checking his work. Which is a good thing. All the reloads he made was at a recommended starting charge. Felt like shooting a pellet gun. Next run hes gonna roll 38 +p pressures as out all the factory rounds we shot we had the most fun with those. He's going to use the 38 spcl loads for when his wife and kids want to shoot. And I think I will save the factory 357 loads for my ruger redhawk and n frames.

In hindsight we should have separated the spent brass that needed the second strike and the 4 rounds that were a no go so we could track and determine if we should toss it.

Well bumbai. We both learning :thumbsup:
