Anybody have anything nice or unkind to say about the Bearcat (especially vis-a-vis the Single Six.)
Dad got Mom a Super Bearcat (steel frame) in the early 70s. Paid $57 and got them to throw in a left hand holster (Mom was left handed).

I got to shoot it a bit when I was younger, but by the time I was 15 it was just too small in the grips. Mom was 4'10" (and a half! Damnit!) wore a size 3.5 ring and it was perfect for her. My class ring was size 8.5 (mom's ring would pass through mine) and the "Cat" was just too small for my comfort.

Other than that, the fixed sights and the old style (Colt pattern) lockwork it was a great gun.

Don't know bout the new ones, sorry.

I've had a Super Single Six since about 83 or so, its my go to .22LR revolver and I'm fond of it. New Model lockwork, shoots well and the magnum cylinder has lived in a box for about the last 30 years or so...
All else being equal (and it almost never is) bigger bullets tend to work better.
