Excellent! That kind of erosion or etching is common in that circumstance and no knock on Ruger. I think it may be a bit more common on stainless guns as the alloys are a bit softer to make machining easier and more economical. Unless it is quite bad it does not itself make the cases stick but fouling will stick to it much more readily and that causes the problem. Your polishing should help. Sounds like your results were fine.

Sounds good, glad it cleared up for you. Like mac said, just keep the chambers clean for good 357s.

My Security Six never got but a dozen or so 357s run through it. My LCR will never see a 357. 38s are enough for that one.

I hear you. I did the S&W scandium J frame 357 bit for a time, but the recoil was nasty with any 357 load to the point where follow up shot speed and accuracy suffered. I know I've mentioned it, before, but being able to get another shot or two off as needed with accuracy and speed is an aspect of choosing a self-defense cartridge/gun combo that doesn't get anywhere near enough coverage on discussion boards.

That's a good price. I own a GP in 6" and 4" barrel and s Security Six and a Service Six that saw service w NBPD.

You made a good buy. Security Sixes are really hard to find these days. I've had this one since it was new and it's always been a great shooter. I used to carry it in plain clothes, so I had the butt rounded. The action is silky smooth, both single and double action. I have no idea how many rounds have gone down the pipe but it's been a bunch. It's still tight and shoots great. I wish I would have bought a 2-3/4" Speed Six too.

My very first gun was a 2 3/4 blued Speed Six in .38, way back in 1979. A 4 inch stainless Security Six was third or fourth. I maybe liked them better than the SP101.
