OP, I would agree with this poster, It is probably an issue with that particular lot of ammo, see if a buddy will trade, or put it away for a future firearm, it really doesn't go bad. just my 2 cents.

It's not an issue with the ammo as much as its an issue with rim spacing, Ruger just screwed up, they admit as much by "applying a fix" to current production. The ammo in question wasn't one brand, it is spread across a few. The max SAAMI spec for rim diameter is 0.440. The ammo used to cause the issues typically ran 0.438-0.436 in rim diameter, meeting the SAAMI spec but causing rim lock in the cylinder. The issue was with Ruger, not with the ammo. Companies mess up, it happens, this one is just a head scratcher though.

I'll never understand why someone spends so much energy throwing a company under the bus.
JLS got a bad gun and Ruger is trying to make things right for him. He's contributed to only one thread, this one to complain in. One would think the energy would have been better spent sending the complaints up the food chain at Ruger.
There are certain loads some of my guns won't eat, I feed em what they will eat.

You are the only one that believes I am throwing a respected company under the bus. You have offered nothing but smart butt remarks in this thread, why don't you be helpful instead of a fool. News flash, they admit they messed up or they wouldn't be "fixing" the problem. Another news flash, I already stated they made things right with me. This isn't a new issue with that version of the GP100, I am not the only one that experienced the issue, several have. It doesn't take much energy to alert other posters that at the time of my purchase, the production run still carried the problem. Ruger in turn, after I contacted them for support, said there is a "fix" and it is in the new production line. Just keep your own thoughts to yourself if you can't do better than this. Posters deserve to be aware of a product defect and its progress in the remedy. Good day.

Far from it jerk off, I'm like this in person. Don't start crap and no one will have to talk like that to you, get a clue.

Not sure what your point is, there really hasn't been one in any comment you have made in this thread that has either been productive, helpful or just chimming in on experience. Nope, you go to trying to belittle someone because they have an issue with a firearm made by a company you are undoubtedly a fan boy of. Get over yourself. You have made no points other than trying to be an ***, just because someone doesn't want to blame the ammo companies for making ammo that are within SAAMI specs. I own 2 ruger firearms, nothing against the company (American Compact 243 and this GP100), I also own a Tikka, Mossberg, Taurus, Charter Arms, Marlin, H&R etc. Ruger is a great company that has made a few mistakes, they all do, they are 200 times better than Taurus if you experience an issue with their product. I am still waiting on a Taurus replacement that they messed up themselves, been 2 months now, they are not that great if you experience problems (barrel replacement they botched). I have nothing against Ruger, they did what I asked of them, end of story. The initial information is valid, why do you have a problem with it?? Or do you just like to start crap behind a computer screen/smart phone? If you have something against me personally,, lets iron that out, there is a private message thingy on here you can use instead of appearing to be an *** that in all honesty needs kicked.

Now, drive on over. I see you still didn't take me up on the private message thing to see what the issues are. Shows a bit.

Gp100 1771.

I purchased a new 1771 today. No time to range test until Monday.
I did the initial cleaning and noticed on the grip tenon (peg?) a date of
02/01 18:43. I believe the frame was made February 1st.
I tried all the .357 I had for fit. Winchester Silver Tip, Federal AE357, Remington HTP .357, Remington UMC .357, Barnes XPB .357, Black Hills .357
and Hornady Critical Defense .38 special.

Absolutely no bind! I can see a space between rims.

I did notice differences between this 1771, my 1755 (2014) and my 1705 (2016).
The grip tenon is marked with red/purple machinist's dye, a lot of it. Makes the frame easily identifiable.
The trigger guard latch/trigger return spring channel has a small hole, top and bottom. I assume to allow for oiling?
The top of the hammer is relieved further. Perhaps to avoid transfer bar pinch?
The crane has a small hole on the inside below the front latch. Perhaps to allow solvent to drain off after cleaning?
There is the letter 'A' lasered in the frame inside the crane opening.
The crane fits properly.

I'll post an update after my range session on Monday.

Today I received the tracking number from Ruger for my replacement GP100. I OK'd the swap on 18th Feb. 10 day turnaround. Not bad.

If your case heads are touching there's no such thing as "built like a tank". This becomes the weakest link throughout the revolver. Poor design should never be rationalized or blamed on several different kinds of ammo, especially when the complaints are coming from one particular model. Fan boys will do anything to shift the blame.
