Taurus Tracker 4 or 6 inch 357 Mag
I am looking real hard at these. I reload for the 38 and 357 mag. I have 2 rifles that shoot the 38 spcl/357 mag and one of em even goes up to max. I want a pistol to round out that family for fun range plinking and Hoosier deer hunting should I choose. Plus I have a real chance at going to Alaska in 2020 hunting. That is not a done deal yet, but it is looking real promising. So I want a revolver that is:
2. Lightweight enough to carry in a chest or should rig for extended periods of time.
3. Reasonably comfortable to shoot using full house mag loads. I am talking 180 gr hard cast under full house charges. (Buffalo Bore or HMS comes to mind). Granted this will not be the primary round, but I must be able to shoot and handle it effectively.
I had a Ruger LCR. That thing was a beast with defensive rounds. Not bad with 38 spcl or 38 +p. Honestly, I could never get through all 5 shots with out waving the white flag with full house 357 mags. I like the idea of a ported barrel that might mitigate some of that recoil, but never had one so...
I plan on purchasing a new one.
Does anyone have this revolver? Does it work well? Issues to look out for? Holster recommendations? Grip choices, etc...
Appreciate your replies in advance.
