I have had one of the "Baby" Vaqueros for a few months now.  It is a fun shooter.  I have only shot jacketed through it.  Check out Lock, Stock and Barrel; they have some "seconds" from Hornady at a low price, 85gr XTP.  Makes for cheap plinking.  Before running the cast, you might check out the throats.  Ruger does a good job on most calibers, the widely known exception being the 45 colt.  Not so widely known is they have the same problem with 32 cal.  Even the special run 32 Buckeye has .310/.311 throats.  My 32mag had .310 throats before I sent it off for reaming.

I have had good luck ith the faster powders, W231, HS6, AA5 and Titegroup.  Not so good with Unique, Blue Dot and AA7.

Let us know how it works out for you.
