Well, I have really done it this time. By being careless, I managed to load some 44 mag rounds but neglected to put powder in the cartridge. Of course, I managed to get a bullet stuck between barrel and cylinder so it will not open. My gunsmith thinks I might actually have 2 bullets in the barrel. He contacted Ruger and after soaking it in WD 40 for 3 weeks it was sent to Ruger. I assume the soaking was to render the live rounds inert. I was hoping Ruger would take the barrel off, get the bullets out, then all would be well. Ruger has deemed the gun not repairable and actually offered me a replacement gun for a nice price, which was nice of them since this is all on me and had nothing to do with the gun. Since Iam stubborn as well as careless, I am hoping to find someone who might help me with my problem. Previously I had Mag Na Port port it and do trigger work and if possible I would like to keep and continue using this gun. I will see if Mag Na Port will help but wanted to contact forum members to see if you all had suggestions to a smith who might help . me.As Ron White points out, “You can’t fix stupid!”. Thanks.
