    Took my LCR357 to the Range today. Fired 300 rounds of 357 and over 100 38+P. There are more than 3000 rounds through it now. No flame cutting or any signs of ware.:cool:

    My dealer just told me it took 5k rounds to make his hard to release the cylinder. He was happy with that. Runs it hard weekly.

    Congrats. I'll be starting down the path tomorrow with my KLCR for the first time. Tell me, what kinda .357 rounds have you ran through it? No crimp jump with it, ever?

    I had some crimp jump with reloads once. Factory ammo never had any problem. The Factory ammo that I have shot, Corbon DPX 357, Winchester 38+p , Fiocchi 357 , Remington 357, And a lot of reloads from Master Cast Bullet Co. I can't remember what else. Factory ammo is the best to use. I loaned the gun to a few people taking their CCW Class. They had reloaded 38s that were hard to eject but who can tell the history of the Brass with reloads? My carry ammo is 357 Corbon.
