    MY several year old 629 developed a occasional misfire at approx. round 800. All loads were by the book maximum hand loads. Originally I thought it was something I was doing, but at round 900 multiple misfires were occurring. Getting worse, I threw in the towel after 950 and sent it back to S&W...

  9. Handloading Procedures/Practices
    After several months of slim pickings when it came to gunpowder I've finally got my hands on some H110 :D! But, as usual I have a few questions. Are magnum primers necessary for H110 or can I use Large pistol primers? What are some of your 300gr Ruger specific loads?
  10. Handloading Procedures/Practices
