Here is what Ruger says about that;Asylum Keeper said:If it can shoot 10mm then it should be able to shoot .40S&W, right?
ahhh, duh. For some reason I was thinking it used moon clips, but then I was like "duh, its a single action"The rimless cartridges in this Ruger revolver get their proper head spacing by how the chamber is bored. Since the .40S&W is shorter than the 10mm, the cartridge would go too far into the cylinder chamber, causing at the least, misfires, or worse, other issues associated with improper headspacing.
by having a lip inside the holes of the cylider, front edge/mouth of the case keeps it from going to far forwardphideaux_2003 said:That is strange.... I wonder how a revolver can hold a rimless cartridge in place properly.
