IM USING THE WINCHESTER JFP 300 GM AND IS A HELL OF RECOIL...BUT I LIVE IT...ONE THING IS THAT IT HAS TO MUCH PENETRATION AROUND 25 TO 30 IN.. WHAT WILL BE THE BEST AMMO FOR ME TO USE? MAYBE THE 260 JHP OR THE 250 HP? ANY ADVICE?
Stick with the 300, the reason is the lighter the bullet the more powder you use. So, the 260 and 250 grs. are going to penetrat more.
I TRY THE COR-BON AND THE GOLD IN 360 GM BUT MY HAND GOT SO NUMB AFTER 20 ROUNDS THAT I SWITCH TO THE 300 AT LEAST FOR SELF DEFENSE.. I WILL LOVE TO GET HANDS ON A FEDERAL HYDRO IN THIS CALIBER BUT I DONT THINK THEY HAVE IT..
PEOPLE TOLD ME THAT I WAS CRAZY TO GET IT IN A 2 1/2 INCH BARRREL THAT I WILL BRAKE MY HAND...BUT A 4 INCH WILL BE HARD TO CARRY...YES TH KICK IS HARD BUT NICE..AND I DONT USE 45 COLT ON IT CAUSE AFTER A WHILE IT WILL FUCKED UP THE CILINDER...
it will mess up the cylinder?
I WENT TO DIFFERENT GUNSMITHS TO SEE IF IT WAS TRUE..ALL SAID IT WAS..SOMETHING ABOUT THE CYLENDER SPACE BETWEEN THE FRAME AND THE CYLENDER PIN..
We shoot the 45 Long Colt and the 454 casull rounds all the time in my brother's pistol. The 45 Long Colt would be a lot lighter than the 454 casull rounds.
WROTE TO RUGER ABOUT IT ..THE SAID THAT IS SAFE TO USE THE 45 COLT BUT OVERTIME WILL DAMAGE THE CYLINDER...
MAYBE CAUSE IS THE SHORT BARREL...???
wear it out!it gives you a reason to send it to ruger and have them fit it for another cylinder!or buy another gun.
shoot .454 casuul!but if it were me...lol
IM LOOKING TO GET MY HANDS ON THE S&W 500 THE NEW 4 INCH.. IS SO FUC...BEAUTIFULL GO TO S&W WEB AND LOOK...BUT AT 1200 DOLLARS? IM NOT SO SURE
i would go with the smith .460 because then i could shoot .45 colt,.454 casuul and .460 magnum out of the same gun
I HEARD ABOUT THAT ONE..NEVER SAW IT..I WILL LOOK AROUND TO SEE IF...BUT CAN YOU CARRY IT? HOW LONG IS THE BARREL..
you can get it with about the same barrel lengths as the .500 smith
LOOK EXACTLY AS THE 500 ..IN 5 INCH BARREL LITTLE MORE SPENSIVE $1300 BUT I LIKE THAT YOU CAN SHOOT 3 DIFFERENT ROUNDS... NICE... THANKS
it seems to me,if my memory aint on tilt that the .480 will shoot other ammo also.and since you is a ruger man already,this may be another option.also look at the Taurus Raging Bull guns
I WILL..THANKS FOR THE HEADS UP..
