Then never buy a revolver. Every revolver I know of has bullet jump from the cylinder to barrel. The nice thing about revolvers is they have a more cone shaped cylinder So there is no problem.

Look at your revolver carefully. EVERY revolver has significant bullet jump. It is the nature of the beast. It is not possible to apply bolt action rifle standards to a revolver. The additional jump a "Special" bullet must make in a "Magnum" cylinder is not conducive to the best accuracy, but will not hurt anything.

I have found this to be true.

I mostly shoot .357 and ocasionally .38+P and have found no problems. The only difference to me is the noticable difference in recoil between the .38+P and the magnum rounds. Of course I am practicing at handgun range which to me is 50 feet and so I have no real accuracy problem. Oh yeah, and the magnum rounds make more noise...haha....

Off topic, sorry:
My revolver is Dan Wesson .357 Supermag. I am reloader too. So the bullet jump is minimal for revolver use. But if I use .38Spl cartridge, don´t make me laugh. (I have .38Spl Renato Camba Trident Match 900 for those short cartridges. Also I have T/C G2 Rem Maximum for very short bullet jump at all).

PS: I hope You understand my bad language.
PS2: Do You know Nagant revolver with jumbing cylinder?
