Hello again made it out to the range today with the 605 Poly 357 magnum and fired 194 lighter loads and 30 full house magnums.

I will continue to update this thread as to not make a thread every trip lol.

No problems at all today with any sticking of the cylinder and the revolver worked flawlessly so far it has 622 rounds of light or .38 special ammo and 145 rounds of full house .357 magnum with no issues.

Fired 25 ppu rounds which were spicy and 5 rounds of my carry ammo which is double tap 125gr bonded gold dots. According to videos and chronography results online should be producong around 550 ft lbs of energy from the 2inch snub. No big flash or unburnt powder.

The rounds compared to the ppu and federal rounds were actually very manageble and mild to me similar to 125gr hornady critical defense ammo.

Fired some handloades 38 special +p with cfe powder which was very fun and recoil was nice with no muzzle flash.

Hope this can document how much one of these snubs can take over time.

Made it out to the range again today and shot. About 195 more rounds through the taurus.

Shot 25 125gr plated .38sp rounds with 4.0gr of hp38 , 25 lead 125gr. 25 with 4.0gr of trail boss. 25 357 mags with 158gr swc poly coated with 5.6gr of unique and 25 with 5.8 grains of unique. 20 fmj factory mags. 25 125gr plated hps with 8.8 gr of unique and 25 with 9.0gr of unique.

The 158gr swc have to be my fav rounds ao far super accurate. Its a light magnum load a little hotter than +p. The 125gr with 9.0 gr of unique were a little spicy with a ton of flash.

The gun seems to be shooting alot smoother the more ammo I put through it and the hotter the ammo the more true to aim it seems to be for me.

Made another range trip out yesterday. Shot 176 full house magnums and 63 .38 sp rounds. Bringing the total fired rounds in the gun to 1190. 765 of which were .38 sp and 425 357 magnum.

The revolver performed flawless yesterday not one hiccup. I feel like the trigger pull seems to.be getting smoother or im just getting very use to it lol.

357 magmum rounds loaded to max charge feel very good out of the gun so I know my tolerence for it has grown because today the pad of my hand is only a little sore like doing light yard work.

Very impressed to how well it is running.
