Went shooting today with a friend, we practise cowboy action shooting I shot my 45's and then he let me shoot his 357/ 38's wow there is a big differance and of course the saving on reloading. It would take me reloading 23,000 rounds of 38sp to completely pay for the new to me Vaquero's and a reproduction winchester 66 in 38 sp. Thats about 38 months of shooting 600 rounds a month. Any how I like the idea of doing alot of reloading and shooting to save money lol.

Sounds good Snuffy. Just send the 45s to me for safekeeping while you shoot up the 38s. They need a little lovin' too.
Oh, and I like your logic on reloading to pay off the Vaqueros----

LOL. The 45's are staying with me. I will do my practise with them and shoot the 38's for the match's. Yea I like my logic myself, have had it for years maybe it why I can never stay married lol. But when its just you you have no one to please but yourself.

If you're going to shoot a lot, .38 special is better than .45 I would think. Cheaper, and it won't pound your wrists as much. Plus I think it would be quicker to shoot a smaller recoil. Am I correct?

yep your right. I bought a friend out years ago and he did alot of target shooting. So I have some 4,000 plus wad cutters, the won't work too well in a lever rifle but they will do just fine in the six shooter's. This will be a major savings, beside I wanted the shooters any how lol.

These are old style I like them better. I have plenty of 38 wad cutters. And at 2.2 mim charge of WW231 a pound of powder will last a good long time. I will have to buy bullets for the rifle but that is all for a long time.

Nice. I like the old model better too. I've been looking for a second 4-5/8" SS .357 to go with the one I have. I might look into trading one of my 50th .357's for one.

yes they are and I use them to practise more than I do center fire helps get your timing down and form as well.
