Made a trade today for an old Ruger Single-Six .32 H&R Magnum.  It's the old version, blue with adjustable sights.  Should make a nice rabbit gun, w/o the meat destruction worries of shooting them with the .480.  At some point a previous owner has had this piece Mag-na-Ported!!!  After shooting a couple boxes thru it I must say that the porting really does a good job of taming that ferocious recoil of the .32 Mag!!  <!--emo&;)--><img src="http://beartoothbullets.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=';)'><!--endemo-->
Good shooting

Why anyone would port a .32 is beyond me, the report is already quit sharp.
All in all the little .32 h&r is very pleasant to shoot. My Ruger in .32 is one of the most accurate sixguns that i own. Enjoy it!

My wife's Ruger SSM [single six in 32 mag] is real  accurate also. It's a great fun gun to shoot and will handle loads way stronger than 'factory' ammo no problem [and has the best trigger-action of any Ruger out-of-the-box i've ever had]. Now that brass is readily available it's even cheap to shoot.  i could understand [possibly] porting a DA revolver if concern for 'follow-up' time but fail to see where it would have any advantage w/ a SA in a gun in this power range [i have to admit i initially thought about having my SBH ported but just 'bit the bullet' (and tried to keep the front sight from tatooing my forehead) until i got used to it. I have yet to figure out exactly why it's got such a nasty recoil flip]. I'd say ignore the fact it's ported and like Scott said just have fun with it.

It is a fun little piece to shoot.  I think if anybody asks about the porting I'll tell them it is a rare "Lace Panty Edition" and quite valuable as such...  <!--emo&;)--><img src="http://beartoothbullets.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=';)'><!--endemo-->  Scott, you're right about the report; it is quite loud with the porting.  I guess if that aspect gets too annoying I could always have the barrel chopped back a ways to get rid of it.

A few years back I saw a custom Single Six in .22, made up by SSK with porting.  The guy said he wanted to reduce ALL recoil.  You know, I alway though that .22 could be a bear to hold onto at times....

I actually do have a recoiless olympic match .177,the most expensive gun I have ever owned.As you shoot it just sits there in your hand and doesn't move.I've never before thought about porting it----gee how much does a porting job cost?

It's costing me $85 on the .500 Linebaugh I'm having built...
