Accuracy testing was done from a benchrest using a two-hand hold over sandbags. The revolver was sighted with a Leupold LER 2.5-8X in Warne QD rings. As is often the case when firing factory-loaded rifle ammo in handguns, accuracy was less than satisfactory, with some groups exceeding 4 inches at 50 yards. Handloads specially developed for the pistol's 10 1/2-inch barrel were another matter, however, with lighter bullets proving particularly accurate. Five 5-shot groups at 50 yards with 110-grain Speer spire-point bullets and 32 grains of H-322 averaged 1.67 inches, with one group measuring just 0.945 inches. All groups were fired with a shot from each of the cylinder's five chambers. With an MV over 2,000 fps, this would be an excellent load for varmint plinking. Another load, with Sierra's 135-grain pointed ProHunter and 32 grains of H-322, was slightly less accurate (1.88 inches) but would be good for game in the pronghorn and whitetail class. For harder punch and good accuracy, Nosler's 165-grain Ballistic Tip with 31 grains of IMR-4895 yields 1,860 fps.
