    Ruger hates it when people use reloads in their revolvers. I forgot who I spoke to many years ago about it, the person repeatedly said they don't recommend reloads- or anything from the manufactures that produce hot loads like grizzly.

    I haven't reloaded for mines yet, but I love the SRH, not the prettiest out there, but excellent for the price imo.

    Funny. I think it was Lyman(?) that had a handloading page strictly for Ruger. Of course, that was twenty odd years ago.

    No manufacturer I know I f will recommend handloads for a production gun in common caliber. Lawyers and all.

    To cover their butts I would assume. We’ve all seen the vids of revolvers blowing up or the pic of the one with the upper half of the gun missing from a double charge. Or the big lawsuit between Glock and Cabelas over the exploding 10mm.

    I just rolled back into town this morning. I haven't had much time to dive into this, but will tonight. I'll post up a final verdict later.

    And it's funny that the Rugers are known as the perfect guns to reload for, due to their beefy build quality.
    Not sure about Lyman, but I know for a fact that Speer did. :cool:

    This. All manufacturers use the CYA statement that they don't recommend handloads. It doesn't mean that Rugers can't actually handle them, by any means.

    Absolutely, they are just covering their asses from the knuckleheads out there.
