    I was reading Cartridges of the World and there was an article by the now late Frank Barnes saying that hyper-velocity 22's lose performance in snubbies (as do any size rounds, right) and can be dangerous to alloy revolvers. I have a S&W 317-2 (offered in -2 as 2 inch 0r -3 as 3 inch) that is all alloy except for firing parts and a stainless barrel liner.

    The cylinder walls are quite thick on this gun. Anyone have any experience or knowledge about this situation?

    The best way to get the correct answer is to write S&W and ask them. They know their guns better than we do... LOL

    You also have to consider the book was first brought out in the mid 1960s and metalurgy have come a long way since then.
