Before you sound the death knell...
Know that some revolvers with bulged barrels -STILL- end up shooting great. The bulge will always remain, along with the shame and lousy memories, but until it's been tested (with GOOD loads!) you don't know if the revolver is a complete loss yet.
My buddy has a Ruger Mark I semi-auto (apples to oranges, I know) and it's absolutely got a large bulge just forward of the chamber, but still shoot straight and sweet.
Attention Brass rats and other reloaders: I really need .327 Federal Magnum brass, no lot size too small. Tell me what caliber you need and I'll see what I have to swap. PM me and we'll discuss.
