1st pistol

bought a ruger blackhawk 357. have been reloading with 158 gr meister rnfp and 4.8gr of cfe pistol. very pleasant load to shoot and seems to be accurate at 15yds. at 7 1/2 yds you can shoot a jaged hole group easily. I'm having a lot of fun with it. next I would like to get a gp100 ss 6" barrel. crap I'm already hooked on this stuff

Congrats, the Blackhawk is a solid gun and so is the GP100.

My first centerfire revolver was a 357 Mag Blackhawk. Traded a Glock for it, one of the best trades I have made. The Glock probably had more appraise value but IMO the Blackhawk is by far the more enjoyable firearm.
