I about it more last night. My 150g Lymans are now right where I am happy 1050 FPS.
My 140’s are 1125 and 115/120’s from 1000-1400fps.

I shot these two targets offhand one and two handed at 25 yards unsupported. Right was after sight adjustment.

I ordered a Accurate 31-135c Last week too. It’s designed for the S7 cyl length.

I’m real happy with this revolver!

I like 45 montado too. It fits fairly well in the front pocket. Certainly not what id consider consealed in the front pocket but its a handy woods gun like that.

Very nice on Montado (image?), its great to be able to safely slip a comfortable shootin iron in a front or back pocket without having to use a holster sometimes. For taking kids on a walk and such or just a higher populated area.

Used to do this in 80s on short Texas hikes carrying a short 686. In recent years, carried a 50ae Packer, (my 3 inch sa revolver) in front chest pouch while wearing waders, fishing near Glacier or Teton NPs but in backcountry or wilderness areas. Handy around big bears. Never made it to AK or Africa, though came close a few times.

Used to have a friend (passed now) that carried a colt sa with a 4 inch barrel when he hunted big cats with dogs in Wyoming, and south Dakota. It was cut down from a 7.5 inch barrel. Carried loaded with pure lead full wadcutters, gas checks. Used to keep cats off of his dogs, and it worked real well. Have the gun,holster,belt, and 2 boxes of his ammo in my safe. No cats where i live (well you best not shoot one ) in central Florida, but i carry it in the hammocks where the big hogs live.(850fps swc loads.)
