Well finally got to the range, I'M IMPRESSED, Shoots great, very accurate....

98 Handloads ( not to hot , imr 4227 ) Gun Shoots Great...SA and DA.
Not much recoil, My hand knows it was firing a Magnum, but not at
all tender, Grips are amazing....

Started at 7 yrd to sight in, moved to 15 Yards , 2 inch groups, a few flyers, My Problem.

Went to 25 yards 4 inch grps, again some flyers. at 50 yrds IN the Black. (after adjusting elevation,
( TOO HIGH ?? ) Some operater errors though...
This gun shoots better than my ruger 357 Max with a 7.5 barrel...

1 thing puzzled me, I sighted in at 7 yrd, than each time I moved to longer distance, the grps were high,
had to keep adjusting the sights down, ??? thought it would be low at longer distance..

Bottom Line , I LIKE this gun, Can't wait to load up some more ammo.....

Assuming bullseye targets or any target with a black center:
Maybe you had the sights adjusted to hit the X ring but you were holding at the bottom of the black (7 ring maybe, depends on target). In this situation the sights are set so the bullet is rising half the diameter of the black. If this is the case then you were probably hitting at the top of the black when you doubled your distance.

Or

Usually you notice with really tall sights such as optics, when you sight in close the bullet rises to the point you see in your sights, and it rises further when you move the target back.

If the center of a red dot is an inch above the bore center and the firearm is sighted at 25 feet, when the target is moved to 50 feet it will hit an inch high. Trajectory will come in to play at longer distances.

NOWUS ...
Sounds like fun.. :D
I have the 627 Tracker .357 4"
Does it have Ribber Grips, those are sure nice..
I put Houges on mine, but haven't got to shoot .357 yet with them yet. I know those factory grips do feel good with recoil..

8times.357 ...
Thanks for that info, just learned something else.. ;)

Yup, Ribber grips, Best grips I ever had on a gun....so far,
Will see how they work as I increase towards Max Load.

I got to fire another 100 rounds today, loaded up 210 grain JHP's with IMR 4227
50 at 18.2 G and 50 at 19.3 G, Lots more snap.
But accuracy is not as good as with 170 gr bullets... ( may be the shooter.. )
recoil still not to bad ( love the grips ), not as bad as the 357max ( fired 60 rounds )

The Ribber is much better than the Ruger Wood Grips.
So: Hand a TAD sore and a little tenderness in the forearm..

Back to the reloading bench...

OH, NO Mech Problems...!!!
