Yep. Maximums are loaded using small rifle primers. Testament to just how high the pressures were originally designed to be. Some older silhouette load data for the Dan Wesson and the Contender have...

I'd be very wary and would probably be calling Taurus myself to verify his story.

Yep. You can still use the .38 Special and .357 Magnum. The .38 Special would have considerable bullet jump to the throats and might not be that accurate. The Magnum in the .360 DW chamber would have...

Nice revolver. No, you can't ream it out for the .357 Maximum as the Maximum is .325" longer than the Magnum (1.605" vs. 1.280"). Here's what you can do though:
1. Ream the chambers for the 1.415"...

Warning of what? That you intend to shoot? That you are hesitant to aim in the direction of the attacker? That you'd rather avoid the conflict rather than end the conflict?

Current .357 Magnum ammo is loaded to SAAMI spec 35 kpsi and is much less liable to flame cut. The S&W K-frame .357's had not only flame cutting but forcing cone issues with the old 43 kpsi factory...

I'd be willing to bet it either had excessive barrel gap or the muzzle nut wasn't tightened to spec. Excessive barrel gap will destroy the accuracy of any revolver, not to mention causing other...

Handloading is the only way to go with any of the SuperMag cartridges. If you want a very soft "plinking" load, use a 240-250gr SWC and Trail Boss. AA-1680 is probably the preferred powder for full...

The Maximum isn't that touchy to reload; you just can't consider it a lengthened Magnum. Part of the problem is reload data has always been centered around the defunct Ruger Maximum Blackhawk which...

If you can only get one, make it a Dan Wesson .44 Magnum. It'll handle any loads the Ruger can and you don't have to compromise on what barrel length you want to use. 4" for carry/home defense and a...

It wasn't his gun and it wasn't while cleaning it. It was his manager's 9mm semi-auto and, as the story goes, he picked it up off the shelf and it just went off.

I remember these. If I'm not mistaken, Sammy's "performing" revolver was a Great Western but he also owned a Colt or two. Ditto for James Arness. Dean Martin wasn't bad with a sixgun either.

Not in the New Vaquero, it can't. The Vaquero is smaller than the Blackhawk and not made for hi-power loads. You could probably get away with 21 kpsi pressure loads, but I wouldn't go higher. The...
