Picked this one up recently from the classifieds. Been chasing one down for a LONG time! Of course, had to make a set of grips for it as the slim gunfighter style it came with don't suit me. I had a piece of old, gnarly, purple plum I thought would work just fine. A quick call to Ruger had a crescent ejector on its way to me while I worked on the grips. Now starts load development and the search for the perfect holster.

Very cool! Might try a 230-235 grain cast (flat base, fairly soft alloy like the ones from Rimrock or Desperado) in front of 3.6 grains of Clays if you can get that powder. Economical and accurate in most firearms I've tried it through. A load that is nearly as good in my experience is 4.0 grains of Titegroup using the same bullet.
