    I ran a hundred rounds thru my mod 10-7 revolver today, it has the thin profile 4" barrel.

    [​IMG]

    Ammo was CCI Blazer (alum) 125gr +P .38sp jhp and Black Hills 148gr HBWC.

    I have chrono'd the Blazer load in the past from my 4" 15-2, it ran 1025fps on average, I'd expect the same in this gun.
    Never chrono'd the BH wadcutters, but based on others' chrono work, mid 700fps is a safe bet.

    All shooting was 25yrds standing offhand, DA.

    [​IMG]

    The Blazer stayed in the black, which was OK, though I was disappointed not to keep all 50 on the sticker (or 8 ring). The recoil is more noticeable with the lighter profile barrel, but certainly nothing to write home about- there's std pressure loads hotter than this stuff.
    Point of aim was top of bull, 125gr hits a little low from this fixed sight K frame; they are sighted for 158gr ammo.
    The five shots below the gun were Win PDX1 130gr jhp +p loads I had for the snubby, group measured 2.25", I held 6 '0 Clock on bull for that. THose typically are right at 1000fps from a gun like this, too.

    The Black Hills wadcutters were a little better for me, right in the middle on windage and a dead-on hold. I still managed to throw a couple in the 7 ring, dammit.:honkie:

    I still need a Tyler for this one, and there's a slight hitch at the beginning of the DA pull, but otherwise perfect, no malfunctions as usual.
    I love the K frame.

    Congratulatiions on a great gun, and if I may say, it is a pleasure to see that there are still a few who know how to shoot a DA revolver @ 25 yds. Thank you, you made my evening.:wavey:

    Good shooting! I know I can't shoot a revolver that well.

    Thanks guys. I actually shot it better than my SA Ruger.
    I shoot all my DA revolvers DA, just as I would if it were 'for real'.
    I wouldn't mind slicking the trigger up a little on this one, but it's minty and will smooth with use.

    Now that's some good shooting with a fine shootin' iron for sure.

    Good shooting, Berto. I always shoot DA as well. Once you learn how it's just as accurate as SA and much faster.

    nice shooting! nice to see there are still some people who can put groups on target further than 10 yards away. I laugh at these postings- about look how accurate my $2000 1911 is- only to see them admit the target was 7 or 10 yards away!

    Nice shooting Berto, and nice looking S&W you have there. I too am glad there are others who can shoot a DA revolver, and make hits past 30-feet. Between you and a others (bac and Cajun shall remain unnamed :whistling: ) you have some great irons. Thanks, now I want a pencil-barrel Model 10 too...

    Such a nice revolver You have there :)
    You may need the grip adaptor I agree - should improve handling. Very nice score :wavey:

    That is why I like Berto and his reports. None of that point blank stuff.

    Berto shoots real guns with real ammo at real distances.

    Good job Berto!
    :thumbsup:

    That's the first and real "M&P". They worked a hundred years ago, and they work now.

    Very nice. I have a beater 10-10 that still shoots like a dream. K frames are choice.

    I've seen a lot of people shoot a lot worse than that at 50 feet on that target. That really is good shooting.



    As usual........ :supergrin:

    Some day I'll try to slow things down and really see what I can do at 25yrds with dedicated slow fire with rests between shots.....unfortunately it takes forever to get through a box of ammo like that.
    The range didn't have their 50yrd mounts in either since they had just redone the backstop, so I want to get that going too.
    Thanks again for the compliments, I have soft spot for the .38sp K frames, they are still a solid weapon with a little effort and practice.
