Bisley holster/Range report

Elk creekElk creek Senior MemberPosts: 5,726 Senior Member
Ok guys I found the load my 32 Bisley likes. A 100gr Hornady XTP being pushed by 10 grains of Lil’gun. This is 5 rounds rested at 25 yards. 
As is this group. And now to the holster. I put this one together for it. The belt I had just waiting for the right outfit. This is it!

 


Aim higher, or get a bigger gun.

    I have one round out in each group. I’m wondering if I have one “bad” cylinder or if it’s just a fluke. I’m going to number them and find out.

    Nice on all counts. I may have to give those a try in mine. I've shot a lot of the 85gr and a gas checked 115 swc with good results but never tried the 100's.

    I tried the same load with the 115’s and it shot ok, pressure signs were non 
    exsistant.

    Nice rig. That a .32 Mag or .327 Mag? I can't remember if Ruger makes a .327 SA or not.

    Good shootin too.

    Real nice work!

    Great shooting too!
    Could be a million different reasons for that off shot. Unless the prairie dog needs six shots, it don't matter.

    Thanks! I agreed to made a rig for a guy once as a favor to a friend. I called him and he wanted a “drop rig” or Buscadero style holster and belt. Not my style or preference at all but ok. Got all the details from him no problem then I asked him for a waist measurement. Not pant size but the meseunent of the length of your best fitting belt. He said he’s call back. Well he did and it was a 56”!  Then I discussed with him the problem with a Buscadero rig and that size of belt. With enough cartridge loops to cover the belt. We compromised on 35 loops!  I called him after he received it and said it looks great, but he was going in for a Lap-band surgery and wanted me to modify it after he “levels out”. I agreed for the price of a new belt....... he was less than excited. Long story short I don’t do work for hire. 😉
