Gunsmithing / Re: Ruger recoil spring weight...
« on: Today at 09:52:29 AM »
Can confirm that 18lbs is the published spec.

Can also confirm that it is stiffer than the Wolff 24 lb in my Para.  Granted the wolff spring has seen a couple K rounds...But I am not sure Ruger's measuring their springs the same as everyone else :P

Feels very much like my Para that has a 24 lb spring, though that spring has seen a couple K rounds.  I would guess at least 22 lbs.

I am not disagreeing that there is a discrepancy in the working length of revolver barrels vs semi-auto barrels.

I do now get that you are applying the music term "speaking length" to mean the distance traveled by the bullet, base to muzzle.  The way I read it you were saying that the nominal length of the barrel was measured bullet base to muzzle, when in fact it is measure breech face to muzzle.

But, that cannot be defined as a spec, because it will be different for a 135 grain 10mm vs a 220 grain 10mm cartridge.  The 135 will travel less distance before it exits the same barrel.  Doesn't make the barrel any shorter.

A better reference length for comparing revolver to semi-auto would be to use the nominal length for semi-auto, and for revolver the nominal length + gap + cylinder length.  Or just use breech face to muzzle for both.

In that case I gotta disagree.  There are a number of issues with that.

Speaking as an engineer your datum cannot be a variable.  The base of the bullet would vary all over the place depending on a wide variety of factors.

Speaking from experience, the barrel length in a firearm where the barrel and chamber are contained in the same part, is measured, with the action closed, from the breech face to the end of the muzzle.

However, the speaking length is measured from the back of the bullet to the end of the muzzle.

By bullet to you actually mean cartridge base?  Cause the back of the bullet would vary from load to load, depending on the bullet weight, style, composition and seating depth.

I can't tell you a place.  I live too far away and have no family/friends in your area.


My grandfather was a farmer in rural Illinois.  He didn't open his land to anyone.  But there was one guy.  That guy stopped and asked if he could hunt or shoot.  And Grandpa told him, politely, that no, he didn't let people hunt/shoot on his land.  They chatted a bit longer about weather, farming, etc.  And the guy left a christmas basket anyway.

And a few weeks later he stopped by again and just chatted with Grandpa.  didn't ask about hunting, just said "Hi".

This went on all year.  Every few weeks this guy would stop and say "Hi".  Sometimes he would have a question about a car, or a tool.  Sometimes he would offer to help (bailing hay as I recall).

By the time the following year rolled around, grandpa knew this guy pretty well.  And grandpa just said to him, "hey, you wanna use one of my deer tags?  I never do."

I don't know how many farmers this guy spent a year getting to know.  But I do know that it wasn't that my grandpa didn't want anyone to hunt or shoot on his land.  He just didn't want a stranger doing those things.  Once he knew the guy, it was a non-issue. 

I don't know if that helps you or not, but I thought I would share.

I like it.

When I post the photo you will see that what I actually need is to remove some material from the back and add it to the gap at the front.

I have heard of a small radius firing pin stop, but not main spring housing.  Did you mis-speak or do I not know?

Assuming the cylinder is the same length as the other SRH guns, you could load long, or ream for 10mm magnum.

Or both.  It uses moon clips, so you could ream to 10mm magnum, and shoot 10mm-mag, long 10mm, standard 10mm and 40 S&W just fine.

Accuracy would nominally decrease the longer the bullet had to "jump"

I shoot cast bullets in my Glock factory barrels, but only bullets I cast.  Glock groove diameter is always on the large side, and as a result factory ammo which is typically sized .401" leads the bore badly.  Generally I powder coat anymore, but if loading lead I use a medium soft lube and size .403"

Dang...I forgot about the picture.

I actually couldn't stand the way it looked and changed it back.  I will put HD fixed back on this weekend and snap a shot.

10mm revolvers / Re: Ruger Announces Super Redhawk in 10mm

I gotta agree.  GP100 and I would buy.  SRH, not so much.

They did just announce a SP101 in 9mm, so lets hope they have some more fun in the pipeline!

This community is great.  The people here are great.  There is a huge repository of information here about our favorite cartridge.

But the crowning jewel of this website is the pull-down data.  I can't thank you enough.  I use this information all the time as a reloading resource, and I am sure I am not alone.

I know this is an older post, but here goes anyway... Any chance you can share your results, realsmswalker?  Very interested to see them, thanks.

I wouldn't hold your breath.  Be great to hear the results, but this user's only activity was on the day he signed up 11 months ago.
