Two questions on DR

Post by Kermit Workman on Tue Apr 05, 2016 4:12 pm

Is it legal to use "skateboard tape" on the grip,actually backstrap? My revolver wants to rotate in my hand during firing. I have the Hogue grips that are factory on a S&W 14-6.
Is it legal to use powder coated lead 158 gn. bullets in DR?

It must be a factory manufactured revolver with no external modifi cations except for stocks which may be modifi ed or changed because of the size of the competitor’s hand or to facilitate loading. Except for stocks and the honing of the sear or sear notch to make a more crisp trigger, and maintain a 2 1/2 lb. minimum trigger pull, no external or internal modifi - cation may be made to the revolver as manufactured and sold by the factory of origin.

Any trigger, sold by the manufacturer of the revolver, without modifi cation, may be used. (b) Sights- Fixed or adjustable rear sights may be used. An Adjustable front sight is not allowed.

I use the Pachmayr grips that cover the backstrap. A little rosin powder on your hands helps if it's a hot sweaty kind of day.

I thought the bullet needed to be lead but by my reading a jacketed RN or SWC could be used. Is that correct?

There is nothing in the current rules that would prohibit a coated 158gr RN or SWC bullet. Let me know how they group at 50 yards, please.

Pictures of the groups are great and would be appreciated.

It's sort of a Catch 22 on the ammo rules. Yes it would be legal to shoot a jacketed 158gr RN or SWC but good luck finding a bullet that meets that description other than a lead bullet. None of my regular outlets has any bullets like that. You can find a plated RN bullet but I think all of the plated bullets on the market are junk (That's a personal opinion). I am talking about bullets to load your own. There are some loaded choices out there.
