Postby jack1 » Mon Feb 12, 2018 5:54 pm

Thinking of a 38/357 Alfa and looking for opinions. Which is the most accurate over 25 mtres / yards the LBR or the Alan W conversion
Thanks

See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U0nLUWimnRM

I have a friend who has the shotgun primer conversion. He had a special offset pin made to knock out the primers. The video mentions problems with primer fit, he's seen that too.

For 25 yard/meter accuracy with a pistol you need to consider your grip, the pistol grips, your sights, your eyesight, your stance, the position of the pad of your trigger finger, direction of pull, follow through. The revolver over that distance is less important unless it fails to go off, the cylinder lock-up is garbage or the barrel is worn out (IMO, of course)

EDIT: er, and very important...... powder load, ball hardness and ball size in a muzzle loader too
