Those are standard remington 158gr lead ball. Not nylon.
FYI I believe nyclad ammo was first introduced in the late 60's which indeed makes it appropriate for the time of that weapon.
My new snubbie
Looks good. I was thinking of doing something similar. Not sure yet..
DC, that's the Navy LCR, yes? Quit handsome. I'm fascinated with these LCR colors. Good or bad, Ruger might well be the Spyderco of the handgun world.
My LCR turned brown after a couple hundred rounds.
Sent it back to Ruger to fix a "broken firing pin" issue and had it refinished too. I've since installed an XS Dot.

Shoot the dot! Got it!

Now, back to the earlier nyclad distraction that I so obtrusively introduced into this thread, not that's it's out of place in this thread given the popularity of nyclads with snubbies..... I did some quick clicking and found that Federal introduced it's nyclad line in the early '80s. This is the nyclad timeline that I was familiar with until I found out that Federal bought the technology from S&W - remember S&W ammo? - in the early '70s. That sounds pretty close to "late sixties."
Anyway, Snubbie on, Gentlemen. :banana:
Thanks for the update. I wasn't sure. Appreciate it.
Pics soon! Give me a min

I did consider the .357 but because it weighs more (I wanted as little weight as possible), costs around $50 more, and it would kick like a mule, I decided on the .38
...of course I wouldn't mind owning all 3 version if money wasn't an issue.
