I drilled 5 holes 6" deep in concrete with a 3 lb drilling hammer and a star chisel. Of course, I was in my mid twenties, and hard as a rock.
SMACK, turn chisel, SMACK, turn chisel, SMACK....
The concrete was probably 60 years old. By the end of it I thought my hand was going to fall off. Couldn't even hold a beer.
Rental impact drills are cheap.
Been there, done that, in 1968.
Ruger GP100 .357
Sweet! How did it shoot? Is it new? What loads were you using?
I'm a .41 Mag fan myself.
The grips are actually redish. So the answer is I am still not better at the range or behind the lens.
42 rounds through my 1991 Colt Anaconda making my load count up to a whooping 145 rounds through this revolver.
Liking this snake gun as it does not punish my middle finger knuckle like my Ruger SBH and Virginian Dragoon.
Though the picture only shows one box of ammo, I had three different loads in the range bag.
Trying to decide what I like to plink with.
15, 17 and then 21 grains of 2400 under 240 grain Keith type of my cast bullets and Sierra JHC's all touched off by CCI 350's.
Going to plink with the home cast as it only costs* me 13 to 15 cents a round and work my loads up.
*until I run out of primers.

It shoots good. Found that 2 years ago at a gun shop not to far from here. It was used when I got it. Loads I was shooting: 215 grain coated swc from MBC over 16 grains of 2400 and a 210 grain Remington FP over 18.5 grains of 2400.
Not only did the sill azz thing screw up and ceased to function ,it wasn't bullet proof either
Well, at least it sounds like you "used enough gun."
It gave ME No satisfaction and I showed it NO Mercy ; I figured it deserved it . What to do with stupid phones which turn themselves off , change settings or refuse to function as a phone . Repeatably told Me I couldn't make a call as I had NO network connection ,yet I'm 5Ghz and using WiFi and internet ,so WTH !. Phone has had a history of updating itself while I sleep and the parameters of which I SET are changed .
Sounds to ME like the FBI NSA WH administration are PREPPING with BIG TECH So the EVIL one is now where it belongs ,I'll be hunting for the Chinese malware Tic Tok NEXT and then High Tech with the New Build .338 Lapua I'll sort it ALL out by November
Shot my 617 today with some CCI Mini Mags, Federal Golden Bullets and Federal AutoMatch. I fired 300 rounds and the only failure was the FAM with one round not wanting to fire no matter how many times I turned it.
Double action is a smooth 8 pounds on average with my Lyman digital scale.
Last week I reamed the chambers with a finishing reamer. Today all the empties dropped out freely. Big improvement.
Looks like some Herrett Trooper grips.
Got a set of those on a 3-screw 41 Mag.
