Got my Wiley Clapp edition GP100. Ran 100 rounds of assorted 38 Special and 357 magnum loads through it. The sights seem to be regulated for heavier bullet loads. It's dead on with 140gr, 158gr and 180gr 357 loads, and shoots a touch low with 125gr ammo. Dead on with Buffalo Bore 158gr LSWCHP  +P ammo and low with Federal +P 129gr Hydra-shok or Remington +P 125gr SJHP. Dead on with my target hand loads 158gr LSWC or 148gr LHBWC at 750fps or 850fps on a 357 case.

That's about as good a single action revolver as you will ever find. Nice pick up.

Do you shoot by hand or do you put it on a bench rest when testing different loads?
Very nice btw

I test for sight alignment, velocity (over a chronograph), and initial accuracy shooting from an old Outer's Pistol Perch. I then shoot using a modified Weaver stance, for general accuracy and handling testing. When I describe how a pistol or revolver shoots I'm talking about unsupported in the modified Weaver stance or a Bullseye stance.

Noo-b here . . .

Just joined up and figured I'd post here in this thread, since I've always had a soft spot for Ruger revolvers . . .

My current favorite is a 4" GP100 I bought new, gosh - I'm gonna guess 25+ years ago. Great firearm!

The second Ruger I own is a 4.2" Redhawk chambered in .41 mag. Bad choice of caliber, unfortunately. I got caught up in the short-lived .41 mag craze that never quite caught on. If'n I had a do-over, I'd have bought the same gun chambered in .44 mag, of course.

Lastly I recently purchased a .38 spcl LCR for pocket carry when I walk the dog at night.

Anyway, thanks for having me!
Best regards,
