I knew you could not keep the links out of this. But thanks for the reminder about 38's and 357 cylinders. I tend to shoot almost totally 38's for practice, so far my 357 blazer aluminums are loading fine, but I sure plan to pay attention to that area on my next cleaning.Qwiks draw said:There will be rings of grime buildup where the .38 Special brass rests in the cylinder. These deposits need to be cleaned out with solvent and and a bronze brush after each range session in which .38 Specials are used. If this is not done an accumulation of hardened on debris can make insertion of magnum or .38 Special cartridges hard or impossible.
During a defense emergency reload this could have dire consequences as the ammo will refuse to go in fast or not at all when needed. Just somethng to be aware of and guard against.
