They're from Altamont, they're the same as the factory Lett grips Ruger used to put on the 3" guns.
Your times with the 625 look better than your times with the 686. Nice!
Thanks for stating the load for the .45 Colt at 900 FPS. That is not a “wimp load”. I shoot a similar load in CAS. 205 grain lead RNFP over 7.7 grains of Universal which mathematically comes out to around 900 FPS. I don’t have a chronograph.
Question; Do you think the weights of the barrels with under lugs make the timing difference better on the 625 over the 686?
I would think with the heavier recoil the 625 would be slower. Your times do not reflect that.
Thanks for the second video. Well done.
The best Mountain Gun story ever; two Norwegians were skiing to the North Pole with a handdrawn sled; they kept everything light. They were stalked for two days by a polar bear; when the moment of truth came, one guy killed the bear with a .44 Mountain Gun, while the other took pictures of the event.
There would have been no second place trophy in that deal.
My favorite is the .41 Magnum but to me the the best all-around caliber for the series is the .45 ACP. I've owned three of them and made the mistake of selling off the last one after buying a 5" 625-7 PC.
The 625 MG will run standard .45 ACP, +P and .45 Super. I spoke to one of the tecs at Buffalo Bore who said they have a bunch of customers who shoot the Super in their 625s. He also does in his gun. Since these loads run a 255 grain hardcast over 1000 fps whatelse does one need for the woods...
Something without moon clips, with cartridges that can be loaded singly of necessary.
How does the 625 MG differ from the regular 625? I'm a big 625 fan, but it's a new one to me.
http://www.dayattherange.com/?p=5966 Here is what Starline brass has to say about their 45 Super cases. “45 Super* is the same externally as the 45 Auto, but has a thicker web, denser grain structure in the metal, and special heat treat process that enhances the durability of the case. Similar internal capacity as the 45 Auto.
As to the Mountain Gun...it has a tapered barrel vs. the 1989 which has a full underlug...much better balance to me...
You missed my point.
On the other hand - there's the Inuit..they keep weight down my packing a .22 magnum rifle & yes - they take polar bear with it. :O
Inuits have big (frozen) ones that clang - or would if they weren't frozen.
I. on the other hand, don't clang - I pack a S&W M69 snub & just shake my head in wonder at those crazy Inuit..
No. The .45 Colt has a huge advantage in case capacity.
In the millisecond before the bullet starts to move, the gas expands to fill the case, which allows more powder to be burned safely in a large case than in a small case. Then as the bullet starts to move, the larger volume of powder produces more gas and drives the bullet faster than a small volume case could with safety.
I think a number of us did...
I believe Mr. Moisin was alluding to the idea that in a stressful situation, one should be able to extract empty cases from a double action revolver and reload with cartridges.
Not something I would attempt to do.
Capable of launching a 260 grain bullet at 1000 fps this revolver is a joy to carry and shoot.
I practice a lot at 100 yards with a 45 ACP to make sure I can get it done at 50. When I hit the clay pigeon on the berm at 100, I’m proud because it’s not easy.
I always get it done at 100 yards with the 45 Colt. When I hit the clay pigeon on the berm, I expected to hit it. 6” or 4” Mountain gun, the expectation is still the same.
