    Ruger Speed Six' ... +P' ammo?

    Woop woop! .. just made the last payment' & picked up' my new
    Ruger Speed Six' last night, (still all giddy with new gun lust)*
    38' spc .. 2-3/4" & in beautiful like new condition' $350.oo total
    Will try to get some pics of her this weekend.

    I was wondering if its ok to use +P ammo?
    No mention of it on gun or in manual.
    & if any of you "Ruger 6" enthusiests would have a clue as to
    the manufacture date? (159-85756)
    Thanks for lookin.

    Very nice!

    Those were also chambered in 357 magnum, you cannot shoot enough +p 38's to hurt it.

    That is one of my favorites.

    Thumbs up

    They don't make them any better than that one. You can shoot +P's in it for the rest of your life and never hurt that revolver. Good luck with it.

    I have one with Pacmeyer grips on it and I absolutely love that gun. The wood grips look great!

    Very nice.... I just brought home a Police Service Six that literally spent the last 30 years stored in a leather holster, and it looks like it... Less than $250 OTD...Made in 1975- I was a freshman in high school...

    Re: Ruger Speed Six' ... +P' ammo?

    When I turned 21, I bought a Ruger Speed Six 357 Magnum with a 2 3/4" barrel. That was over 30 years ago. It is still in great shape and was my carry gun for many years.

    Back when I got it, I though of it as a small carry gun. I ate the hot loads without any issues. I could not say the same with my S&W Model 19.

    I really like that it is so easy to take the Ruger Speed Six apart. It is a very slick design.
