    I've grown up shooting shotguns and rifles I tried shooting a pellet rifle couldn't hit anything but get me with my dads 22 rifle with that my aim is almost as good as the aim of a sniper

    And best of all, the first time I was a kid and didn't have enough hand strength to pull the trigger and grip it right, so I burnt my hand.

    yes, practice shooting handguns, and other firearms , regularly..

    owning a firearm and thinking you can protect your self with it
    is like
    buying a piano and thinking you can now play it..

    owning a musical instrument and being a musician are way different.

    owning a firearm and not practice with it ,,,
    you got your self an expensive hammer... that makes a loud noise ...

    I was raised by a man who had a 500+ gun collection and had an indoor range at our house . I sleep with several guns and always have a gun within reach . I like to shoot and I have gotten better and better over my lifetime but that because I got so much better at loading my own ammo. loading ammo for accuracy

    My stupid ass bought a 1000 round case of PMJ .357 mag shells and they are junk. They expand in the chamber (Taurus revolver) and dont come out easily. What can I do with these? Will they work in a semi-auto?

    Sorry, its PMC.
    I dont know where its made but it came in 50 round boxes, so its not likely surplus.

    No PMC is good. I've used it before. There's a Russian ammo called PMJ that's high on the list of uber-crappy. Some of their stuff has corrosive primers and I've even found old cordite powder in some of it.

    Taurus revolvers have been known to have ejection problems. Try the ammo in a S&W and see if it does the same. (Out here in California you can rent handguns at the indoor ranges) If it works OK in an S&W make sure the base pin is screwed down tightly on the Taurus and/or you might have to have the cylinders polished out.

    Mine has a thumb slide on the left side on the grip end for rolling out the chamber, I'll have to look it over to see if there is something to tighten.
    I should be more clear; The shells slide in and eject out very smooth and easy, unless they have been fired. Then the casing bulges out in diameter slightly causing the problem. I have always noticed this on on a slight scale with other brand 357 shell but these I actually have to push the ejection pin on something more durable than my fingers to get them out.
    I'm thinking, if its not the shells, my chamber is possibly worn oversized, allowing too much deformation (when firing) of the casing?
    I bought the gun in 92 or 93, it was used but by appearance, not much; Maybe 1000 rounds fired since I have owned it.

    The base pin is the thing that runs straight up the middle of the cylinder and attaches to the ejector moon. If that becomes loose it will restrict the motion and seem like the empty shells are stuck in the cylinders. You can also Mic the casings with a caliper up the length to see for sure if they're bulging.

    Personally I would consider investing in a better revolver like Colt or S&W.; How is the timing on yours? Do you get any side-spit?
  • Katfish FAWKES'... 2012/07/11 21:45:03

    Its been like a year since I fired it, so hard to remember everything. No, I did not check the timing, actually just read some about it now.
    Thanks for the info, next timeI get it out, I need to do some more checking as it may not bet the shells after all.
