Looks like you'll be needing an extra set of arms, so you can shoot all four at once...    M__

What  i'm telling you is practical real world results.
Please be adviced, again, that these threads were arrived on in basically the same breath where Sir Joseph Whitworth was forming the worlds first standardization system. Iow that deviations, if applicable at ALL, is to be expected.
The 16,00mm and 30tpi arrived on is true real world measurments.

Tried that. They lost all in a fire or so they say. I did get a couple of the dust springs from them. If I am not mistaken I believe S&W own TC now.

If you want a 38/357 Rossi don't wait too long. I just read on the CastBoolits forum that the plant has shipped all those guns they will make this year. Evidently they only made the 38-357 and 44 Mag guns this year, along with a big bunch of 22s which aren't moving all that well.

Did you try the manufacturer?  I once sent in a TC rifle that had been discontinued for over 10 years, they replaced the stock with a beautiful piece of black walnut, no charge to me. It had a hairline crack at the receiver tang, barely visible. I bought a TC rifle with a barrel that looked like a peeled banana for $25. It was obvious the tube was obstructed at the exit when someone pulled the trigger. The barrel was peeled back to the forearm. They shipped me a brand new one, and the one sent in had been discontinued for over ten years. That makes me think they have the wood you need. TC CS rivals Ruger CS, both excellent when I had to ask for their help!

I had a TC Scout pistol years ago, and sold it for $150. It was well built and a great shooter, never should of parted with it. Back then, if I wanted a new gun, I had to sell an old one.  Still looking for another elusive TC Pistol, they seem very hard to find. Nice Tingle ya got there, beautiful CCH frame! The single shot .50's are a blast to shoot!  &j(

Actually, I think it was I who erred.
I spent some lovely "research" time catching up on Lehigh's offerings.
Square drive is the "barrier penetrator", whereas Phillips gives wider permanent entry wound.
Both travel over one foot through gel, both further than FMJ ball, both wider permanent wound channels.

My apologies.  Let's see if I can retrofit my previous reply...

Regardless, I found it interesting that the reamer-induced lead projectile would be somewhat a mirror image of a proven copper projectile.

Hi Classanr - correction noted.  Good deal. 

Actually, I first learned of the Cavitator last year from one of your posts in the thread RE: what would you carry.  Stole the photo from the link you provided there.  I’d been confused on the two types - but not now.  That ammo reminds me of a flying drill bit on a full power spin.

GDog, your image is for "Cavitators"

Here is the "Penetrator" (aka "Defender")

Interesting that the "Cavitator" was the first defensive round out of a .32 pistol to consistently penetrate 18 inches of gel after layers of denim.  But marketing term "Penetrator" is assigned to the "Defender" that is designed to not over penetrate.

For the uninformed here is a link to a good explanation how these very different bullet designs work in general, with ballistic gel being examined.

Maybe this means if your life suddenly depends on which screwdriver to wield, go for the #2 Phillips or the #2 Square.

[edit note: see next two posts for some clarity on Lehigh's terminology.]
