Keep us posted..my goal would be for NRA Action Pistol competition and the 50 yard practical event. The only "multi-caliber" revolver that I have experience with is the Manurhin MR73...the 9mm cylinder would shoot 2.5" groups at 50 yard...but wasn't a moon clip cylinder.I bought the long barrel for man on man steel plate matches, wanted a moon clip 9mm. Can't see the price/quality the S&W. My reddot mount is on the way and I'll be shooting groups with 9mm federal 115gr. My goal is 7 shot 2.5 inch at 25 yards, if not it will be for sale cheap. About a week out
Yes that is the theory - I own a Manurhin dual cylinder 357/9mm that will shoot 3" groups at 50 yards in either caliber. Bullet weight, design and barrel twist rate are also factors in accuracy - that's why I would like to see some actual hands on Taurus 692 results. Don't even know for example if the S&W Model 929 has a 9mm or 357 bore.9mm accuracy will depend on bore size . If Taurus compromised and used a .356 bore the 9 should shoot OK . If they used a .357 bore probably not so good . Test I have seen show the 357 cylinder installed to shoot pretty well.
NYED I am with you on accuracy testing. I shoot most of my guns , froma a sand bad rest, when load develpoment of factory ammo steting. I have a couple of Ruger SP101's that I shot for accuracy at 25 yards and the 9MM 101 was absymal !! My 4" /32mag, 4" /327 mag and my 3"/357 all shoot in the 2-3" group at 25 yards from a rest. My 2 1/4" 9MM would not hit a standard target at that distance and key holed 9MM cast bullets sized .356. I have several Trackers and all of them, when fed what they like will shoot 2-3" at 25 yards -- open sights and 74year old nut on the grip. I have a 627Ti , first one I had seen for sale in the 90's, that will shoot 1.5" groups at 25 with good cast bullet loads . The Ti is a nice gun but I use my SS 627 for stronger loads and preserve the Ti for lighter target loads. I know most calibers , if the bore and chamber mouth sizes are dimensionally correct . I have just received my new 692 -- you guys fault !! It is well made nice bead blasted finish but has a heavy trigger pull . I have a lighter main spring I will try in it
