    357 and 38 are nearly identical, except the case is longer on the 357. You can shoot both from the same cylinder, but it's usually a good idea to shoot the 357's first, and then the 38 specials during any given range trip. The 38's will deposit carbon inside the cylinder at the end of the case, and if you try to subsequently load it with the longer 357's it can be a tight squeeze when the end of the longer case encounters the fouling. The fouling cleans out easily enough - just a tip to make things easier.

    Congratulations on your new revolver.

    For the price point the EAA Windicator is surprisingly accurate.

    Please post a report when you get it to the range. I'd like to know how they are. I'd REALLY like to see a comparison - comparing them to the Armscor 200 or 206.

    looked at a windicator and a commanche .357 before settling on a taurus,like the windicator,the commanche,not so much,rough action.

    ok FINALLY got out to the range today ( and boy was it busy lol) but in anycase i shot both the .357 magnum and the .38 special rounds... i found the gun to be accurate at around 20 feet (wich is where i dropped the target) the trigger i found to be nice and smooth... now i had watched some vids on youtube claiming that once you shot the .357 mags that the ejector and the cyclinder would no longer be right... well i dispelled that immediatly as per suggested i shot the .357's first then the .38sp and had no trouble at all with any of this firearm and to be honest i believe now that i may stop purchasing semi auto's and begin collecting more revolvers ( just personal prefrence) but all in all it was a great day at the range and i will let my wife give a range report on her new firearm ( pt 73 when she gets around to it ( so bug the crap out of her (plumcrazy) but dont tell i said that lol

    The other thing shooting the 357's first does is to make the 38's feel like a pop gun by comparison - but you already know that by now. Sounds like you had fun.
