    So Handloader , while shooting all of this ammo how many barrels did you wear out in these guns of yours?

    I'm in the military , and have served time in Iraq . I myself have fired thousdands upon thousands of rounds either in training or in combat.
    The barrels of our M4's have been cherry red from the heat being produced. Usually resulting in the barrels warping from the excessive stress.
    Now , you were firing how many rounds through this golden .357 of yours each day / for how many hours straight? But by the grace of some higher power from above this same .357 managed to hold true to it's accuracy after all that abuse.
    All I can say then is WOW.

    To answer your question I never did wear a barrel out only the the revolver. In that 9 year period of time I wore out 6 Ruger Security SIX revolvers. I mean the wear on those revolvers were so bad some shake and rattle others just have a barrel that has very very very worn rifling.

    I am suprised that nobody has mentioned anything about "popcorn" yet.:)

    I am not an avid handgun hunter, nor do i have anything larger than a 9mm glock, which is not suitable for hunting. I probably couldnt hit a school bus at 400 yards with any handgun, nor do i have enough time to practice in order to become proficient enough to do so.

    Hitting a coyote at 400 yards is a tall order for a scoped rifle with a projectile travelling over 2500 fps. Even a taller order for for a 6" barrelled .357 magnum revolver, with iron sights. Not saying it couldnt be done, but i guess anything can happen.

    I think there is a show on the outdoor channel wed or thur night that has something to do with GUns and Ammo. Impossible shots? This would qualify in my book as one of those.

    Don't they have a Wile Coyote in the Macy's Thanksgiving parade? Now i might stand a chance with that at 400 yards.

    It's not IMPOSSIBLE...

    There is a group of guys up here that shoot 300 yard silly wets with 4-6" barrel revolvers for fun. They have a consistant hit ratio of about 1-20 on a 2.5'x2.5' target.
