    I had complete case head separation years back on a couple of rounds. I had 'em loaded hot and the cases were old, fired more'n once. Mine does fine if I use brand new brass. I was shooting 2400, but I can get just as fast with L'il Gun at much less pressure, loading below book anyway, so that's how I've gone. Still pushing a 165 grain gas checked SWC at over 1800 fps. Also, I use new brass reloaded no more than a couple of times when I wanna push max velocities.

    I've been shooting mostly .38 special stuff for plinking in it, but I have a supply of the hot stuff.

    Well, a week later I got to the range today. I suspect that I was putting it off expecting to find something wrong with the rifle and not wanting to do the dance with Taurus again.

    I had some 38 Special FMJ RN Herters I believe (brass case), some Remington green box 38 Special FMJ HP +P and bought 25 rounds of Fiocchi 357 Magnum at the range, both of the latter ones nickel plated cases.

    No case bulges like I experienced with my reloads. Perhaps a tiny bit of expansion at the base but I haven't measured them yet, just a visual observation. Very relieved so far that serious issues haven't been found. The 357's were certainly not "weak sisters" as I loaded up the 605 with five of them and gave it up after three rounds. No fun there at all, though in the Rossi they didn't feel much different than the 38's.

    “…democratic socialism, the great utopia of the last few generations, is not only unachievable but that to strive for it produces something utterly different – the very destruction of freedom itself. As has been aptly said: ‘What has always made the state a hell on earth has been precisely that man has tried to make it his heaven.'” F.A. Hayek
