    Ruger LCR 9mm: Anyone has experience behind one?

    As asked above, does anyone have experience with one? If so, did you experience bullet jump?

    I'm looking for first hand knowledge, not stories of internet legend or folklore.

    Thanks

    I was reading some stuff on another forum today where guys were taking them back because of bullet jump. Said it wasn't just with reloads but with high quality new rounds also.

    Bullet jump is ruining this. Does it make the last round go so far forward that the cylinder doesn't turn?

    That would also be a good question for someone who has experience from in front of one. Lol

    That is exactly what they were reporting. They said there was no way they would trust their life to it.

    I have one, and I have experienced bullets jumping crimp. I was handloading some heavier projectiles, Donnie's 147 gr LRNFP's, with some fairly hot loads.

    I kept adding a bit more crimp until the situation solved itself.

    No other issues, with a variety of factory, and home rolled loads.

    Love that revolver. Got a LCRX in .38 too.

    Awesome! Someone has one! Did any of the bullets jump far enough to bind up the cylinder? What factory loads did you use? I appreciate any info you can share!

    It never jumped crimp far enough to lock up the cylinder. Only with heavier projectiles in hotter loads.

    Never experienced it with 115gr factory loads.

    I load 5, shoot four, and measure the fifth with my handloads. That's how I know.

    I personally would like the LCR in .357 it is a slight bit heavier but the ability to practice with .38 and use .357 for self defense is worth the extra ounce. Yes, I have shot both with self defense rounds and with factory grips the .357 is manageable.

    Shot both meaning 9mm and .357?

    Shot both meaning .38 and .357?

    I see where you are going with this but at least he is offering an alternative if the 9mm doesn't work out for the OP...I don't think he is ripe for crucifixion just yet.
