Thank you all for the responses. I appreciate the very clear explanations. GP100Man, thanks for the "blow-by-blow" sequence.

After firing, most of the the previously loose cases would remain in the "up" position (one would occasionally fall back into the chamber) after I pushed the extractor. It was a light push to extract them, so I assume that is how it is supposed to work.

The .357 has a much sharper recoil than the .38 Spls. (my first time with the caliber in a revolver), so it took a bit of time to get accustomed to it. The sights (sighted in for .38 Spls.) seemed to be quite close for the .357s, whereas the point of impact for a rifle changed by 6 inches when one switched from .38 Spl. to .357 (6 " higher at 50 yards for the .357s).

Thanks again,

Monty
