357 Mag out of LCR....OUCH!!!
Got to the range today with my new Ruger LCR 357Mag. well.....38 spec out of it is a dream to shoot but full 357 loads....:frown:. It truly felt like I was being smacked in the hand with a lead pipe! So, looks like I won't be cowboying up alot with this snubbie!
Question....I was firing 38spec 158 grain lead ball and 357mag 158 grain semi jacketed lead outta the LCR. Are those good rounds for self defense? Or should i go and find a good hollow point?
Sorry for no real range report. I only went through a little under 100 rounds just to get a feel for her. But I will say this, first round with both 38 and 357, tore a nice round hole through the center of the target at 5 yards:smile:. But after that first round with 357, all hell broke loose! LOL
