    I had some strange impulse and pick up one of these. It's a beast! I immediately changed the grips with a set of nice Hogues [28.00]. Shoots nice and I hit with it. I like it. Any body else got one?

    I had a .357 tracker was a real nice and beastly looking revolver, I loved the grips on it BUT after a few hundred rounds , it started to shave lead so it went by by and so did my liking of taurus. I hope you have good luck with yours :)

    Similar issues with my Tracker .357...a few hundred rounds of full magnum loads, and it was getting out of time. Sold it, don;t miss it.

    Hopefully the OP's will fare better.

    I have the Tracker 357 with about 800 rounds through it and I have had only one problem and that was when I first got it. It was with Blazer aluminum case ammo. The rims on the cases were all different thicknesses and it would not allow the cylinder to rotate. Got my caliper out, checked the gap behind the cylinder, .055. Checked the rims on the case, most ranged from .057-.061.

    Switched to WWB and never had a problem.

    I've got a Tracker 357. Must have been built during siesta time. Had to go back twice for timing repair. If the gun had fired a couple of those rounds that it didn't, we would have had a kaboom. Gun works now, but I wouldn't trust it for self defense nor will I buy another Taurus product. This primarily due to the idiotic statements that came out of Taurus repair...You problem is shooting .38 specials rather than .357 rounds. Yeah, Right. Ruger and Smith cost more, for a good reason.

    My friend has one a likes it alot with no issues with standard 240 gr ammo.

    The only drawback and no sell for me is the ported barrel. Shooting with no ear pro resulted in feeling like I got smacked on my ear with a 2x4.

    If it didn't have that I would have one for 44 specials.

    Why would you go shooting with no ear protection?
