to the expectant owner of a great revolver.
I've had mine for a couple of years and just love it. Like the '51 Navy C&B this is pretty much a point and shoot gun, great balance and very accurate even with the lightest of loads. I alternate shooting the C&B and R-M sometimes at the range and it is difficult to tell the difference.
38Spl is a great round for these guns because you can do alot with it if using BP. Reloading supplies usually are easy to obtain (current period is perhaps exception) and reloading itself is very easy. If you don't reload then factory ammo is usually plentiful and cheap in comparsion to alot of other calibers and the R-M is made to handle modern ammunition.
You made a great choice.
