45 Colt and 2400 | Ruger Forum

After inheriting a couple pounds of 2400 (new formula) I was experimenting with moderate 45 Colt loads under 14,000 psi; my revolver will not handle the Ruger/TC loads. I settled on a 15g load behind 255 cast SWC bullet using Winchester WLP primers. The problem that cropped up was the 2400 did...

American Feed Problems | Ruger Forum

Hello, just registered and I’m hoping I can find a solution to this problem. I just picked up a 7mm-08 compact for my fife and it will not chamber the shell. The shell will leave the clip at a angle to great to go into the barrel. If you try to force the bolt forward it just crushes the case. I...

.41 mag loads | Ruger Forum

I just got a Redhawk in .41 mag. I'm trying to figure out what will work best in it. There is not too many choices to buy in .41 mag. HSM has 210 gr. LSWC and that's about it. It's fine except the price. I reload all my other ammo and am wanting to reload the .41's also. I'm using Missouri...

Do Not Use .38's in a .357 Magnum! | Ruger Forum

If the title of this thread has you a bit confused, then join the club. I was at the range to do a little shooting, and I was asking about prices on .38's for my SP101 .357 magnum. The man behind the counter said, "Do not use .38's in a .357 Magnum!" When I asked why, he said that over time...

Value of a Security Six | Ruger Forum

With out pics and assuming it's in decent shape that's like a $4-450 gun if you sold it to someone you know for a fair price. Any higher than that and someone will likely just feel that a brand new GP100 is a better deal.

Small pistol vs. small magnum pistol primers | Ruger Forum

I would load one or two and shoot them. If the primers aren't flat and everything looks good, go for it. If you have a chronagraph and know the speed you were getting with regular primers, that is more info you can use.

Can My Mini 14 Shoot a 556 Round | Ruger Forum

well, this is what has confused everyone asking this question for years: the mini 14 is chambered in 5.56, yet stamped ".223." most here understand that you MAY shoot 223 out of a 5.56 chamber, but you SHOULD NOT shoot 5.56 out of a 223 chamber.

M-77 accuracy tip | Ruger Forum

I am a new member to the forum and have this tip that I learned many years ago on accuracy issues with M-77's. I did not invent it, but rather read it in some magazine article on Ruger M-77's back then. I first used it on a 1987 M-77 with tang safety and recently used it on a new Hawkeye, both...
