I just got a Ruger Security Six, 6" barrel, stainless steel with a 151XXX serial number. Which puts it as a manufacture date of 1979. I got it from my grandfather who says less than 200 rounds have been put through it. It shoots normal every day rounds like a champ. Anyways, my biggest hopeful use for it will be a woods gun. I'd really like to be able to shoot hot loads through it. In particular, Buffalo Bore hard cast rounds. According to the box they are 180 gr, 1400 fps, 783 foot lbs at the muzzle. So... Can this gun stand up to the punishment these rounds and rounds like it would put out, or am I asking too much from an older gun like this? I really don't want it to blow up in my face. Thanks!

Our 357 mag. ammo adds more power than ever before to the 357 mag. This ammo is safe to shoot in ANY all steel 357 revolver - this includes J frames. This ammo is no harder on your gun than any other normal 357 ammo. Please don't phone us and ask if this ammo is safe in your gun. It is, providing your gun is in safe condition for use with any normal 357 ammo.
Imagine shooting them out of a Scandium J Frame, Woo Hoo.
Thanks for the replies... I recently put better grips on it than the old wood factory ones. That was the only thing I have done to the gun. Hopefully the grips will make the gun a bit more comfortable to shoot with the high power loads.
Anyone know why they put on the box not to expose the ammo to temps above 110 degrees? I have never seen that on any other box of ammunition? Just wonder how you know if the ammo didn't sit in a FexEx or UPS truck roasting in the sun and then boom! HAHA
The Security-Six is one of the most durable guns that Ruger ever made. My stainless steel 4" is nearly 40 years old and despite thousands of rounds of .34 and .357 it shoots as well as it did when it was new.
