Surprisingly the ‘smith sent it back to Ruger, they inspected it and found no frame stretching or damage, after fitting a new cylinder it was returned good as new. Never ever try to identify a powder by appearance, if you don’t know throw it out and never substitute without checking a good reloading manual.

    Downloaded Best Bottle Opener and saved it to my Ipod.
    The top strap over the cylinder on the Ruger in my story was very much curved up from the blast. I believe the whole gun was twisted off centre as well.
    Bend the knees, smooth is fast, watch the front sight.
