I have a pair of New Model Blackhawks in .357 Magnum and a P-90 and a P-95 as well.  The P models alternate as my daily carry pistols and the NMB's are broken out every time I head to the desert ranges for some fun.

I am a 'Relatively' new Ruger Shooter as I bought my First Used Ruger Revolver in late November 2015.

It is a New Model .22 CAL. Convertible Single Six that I had custom converted to a Center Fire Single Eight in .25ACP, and other Cartridges, with a 10-5/8" long barrel.

The end of June 2016 my Second Cylinder was finished by my gunsmith in ".250ALRM"; a .25ACP diameters "wildcat" of 1.250" case length.  I also have some other 'Mildcats' I can shoot through this revolver now:
"6.35x26mmSR Stewart" of 1.020 through 1.056" case length, I currently am trimming to 1.055" in my experiments.
This is the same Case length and overall length as a .22WMR cartridge and also has the name ".25 Magnum Auto" and ".25MACP".
"6.35x28.6mmSR Stewart" of 1.125" case length.  This is the Same length as the old .25 Stevens Rim Fire Cartridge.
"6.35x32mmSR Stewart" of 1.250" case length.  the same case length as the ".250ALRM" but made from a 5.7x28mm Case.
All the 'mm' case designations are Made from Resized and trimmed 5.7x28mm FN once fired Brass.
All the "inch" case designation sar e made form Resized and trimmed .22 Hornet Brass (mostly new PPU brass).

So far I have loaded 50 grain FMJ and 63 grain Lead bullets ahead of BE-86, Power Pistol, Bullseye, Or Unique.
weakest fired to date is Factory Prvi Partisan 50 grain FMJ .25ACP, and the Strongest so far is 3.0 grains of BE-86 behind ^3 Grain Lead in a .25ACP case.


Left side of my Ruger .25ACP Single Eight, with Cylinder installed.


Right side of my Ruger .25ACP Single Eight with cylinder removed and Loaded with cartridges.


Close up of the Modified 8-shot cylinder. It is still marked as '22-MAG' though.

Eventual Plans is to have four separate Cylinders, one for each basic cartridge designation/case length.

I have not yet come up with a method to remark the cylinders in their actual Cartridges without the chance of distortion.
I also have a Stevens "Favorite" converted to Center fire and use a ".25 Stevens" barrel to 'plink' with .25ACP rounds.
I can fire 6.35x28.6mmSR Stewart in it if I down load to about Trans sonic Velocities (about 1124fps).

Best Regards,
Chev. William

Well, that is interesting.   :o

I like wildcatting too.  Ruger SA revolvers are great platforms to build from.

You are now RATS member #736.

Thank you for Making me a Member of the R.A.T.S.

I hope to request a 'Badge' when I receive my Social Security Retirement payment at
the End of the month, provided I don't have a a Huge Utility Bill like I did last month.

Retirement is not Highly Remunerative it seems. No "work calls" from My Union for a
Month or more now, and I had to decline the last 'work call" s I am not up to hauling
4/0 Power Cable up ladders to the Permanent Overhead of Stages any more.
Moving it around on the stage floor is still OK.

Best Regards,
Chev. William

Look at the badge thread to find the badge order form.
It's usually the first or second one on the RATS forum. 
I sent you a PM and an email also.

I am Now a "Two Gun Ruger owner" as I took Possession of a Used .32 H&R Magnum Ruger Single six complete with a Belt Mount Holster.
This Used up all the 'Discretionary funds' in the Month so I will not be able to try it out until possibly next Month.
This "Possession took place September 20th due to the Shop being closed between the 16th and the 20th due to multiple sick shop personnel
Just in time for my Birthday Anniversary on Sept. 21st, my 74th.

Also, my "R.A.T.S. Reserve" Badge Arrived and it looks GREAT!  I am Planning to Purchase a Badge Wallet to carry it in, hopefully one that I can hang off my  belt or a Pocket to display the Badge when appropriate. 

So Far A Good Birthday for me.

Best Regards,
Chev. William #736 R.A.T.S. member.

The Badge Wallet to fit S&W Style #262L is now on Order from "Cops Plus" (www.copsplus.com) and expected in about four weeks.
I have also requested my gunsmith to try experiments with Ruger Single Six used Cylinders: a Blued 6-shot .22LR to be re-cut for .32Auto (~.337" body diameter) and a Stainless steel 6-shot .22-Mag to be Re-cut for .32 LC (the .318" body diameter ones).
If these come out well, then I will consider having the .32 H&R revolver reworked to work with the Modified .22 Cylinders (requires setting the barrel back to lengthen the forcing cone end and trimming the front of the .32H*R cylinder to work with the New forcing cone position).
My Hopes for the future on this .32 include eventual cylinders for some other CF versions of old RF cartridges of .318" body diameter such as the .32 Extra Short, .32 short, .32 Extra Long, etc. 
That Stubby little .2 Extra Short might make a nice short range 'plinking' and target round.

Best Regards,
Chev. William
