Well, I've got to shoot SOMETHING for centrefire, so I'll join you. Mine's only a 327 Federal, though, so the bullets may just drop and hit the floor before they get to the target... :)
Missed this the first time. Nice. Even if they don’t fall to the ground they’ll probably just bounce off paper, right?

They usually do. Some of the wadcutters barely make it out of the barrel....

Cool! I may be doing the centerfire portion with my GP100 as well. :) I shouldn't give away a competitive advantage here, but I found that factory wadcutters are generally more accurate than FMJ .38 Spc. out of the GP. ;)

Good luck! :yahoo:

Heh! Yeah - the wadcutters are more accurate for sure, but the 32 ones are slow as molasses. My GP100 was sighted in at 10 yards, but was hitting to POA at 25.

Wow. The ones I was shooting were like a pea shooter- I think they were running about 740 fps. Mighty lazy, but they sure fly true and make scoring easy. The GP is such a beefy gun as it is, with those wadcutters it had all the recoil of .22lr out of a Ruger MK...

I'm relatively new to revolvers. After this conversation and reading up on wadcutters, I'll definitely be sending some down range next time out.

Revolvers are neat. Totally different thing than firing a semiautomatic, in my inexperienced opinion. Wadcutters are a hoot- the target looks like someone went at it with one of those hole punch tools. There are some semiautos that shoot wadcutters, too: Smith and Wesson Model 52 comes to mind- It shoots 38 Spc. wadcutters and the one I shot was the most accurate pistol I've ever shot. Simply amazing. Too rich for my budget, though. :)
