This is a discussion on Range Report - Ruger LCR within the Wheelguns forums, part of the Other Handgun Talk category; Picked one up for Mrs. Obscura today. Couldn't resist running a box through it, you know, for testing purposes....

My .38 Special PD rounds are 110gr. The recoil difference to 158gr over the counter rounds is immense. Accuracy and recoil way better with the 110. I then reloaded 500+ rounds of 110 with the same powder and speed for practice. Works for me and Momma. She doesn't like it with the bigger round either.

Not having done much shooting in recent years, it's hard for me to judge recoil. After the first five rounds I was able to relax and make accurate follow up shots.

The big question is what Mrs. Obscura will think? Her dad's .357 magnum was too big for her hands and too heavy to hold comfortably at arm's length. (she was shooting .38 rounds) I explained about that the price for light weight and comfort is recoil. She signed on and is confident she can handle it.

I'll update with her reaction after the next range day.

I wonder if the .357 model (heavier) would help with recoil, even if a person was only going to shoot .38 specials or .38 +P ammo?

Yes it does. I've shot the 38, and it was a little snappy, the 357 is a breeze with 38+p loads. Hot 357 loads are snappy, but manageable.

my gf and i shot 4 guns last wednesday: lcr, lcp, rossi .38 snub and my xd9sc. the rossi and xd were a lot more controllable due to their extra weight. my gf is tiny and her hands got pretty beat up from the lighter guns. i was able to control the recoil and shoot consistently but i felt like i wasted extra timing bringing it back on target.

I've got two different grips for mine. The CT Laser Grip and a Hogue Boot grip. If I know I'm going to put lots of lead down range I'll go with the Hogue grip because it's got a gel insert that helps out quite a bit.
