  1. The part of the lifter that is likely culprit is the two ears at the rear (where they reach around the trigger group body). These lifters are WAY to flimsy and should have been made of heavier guage steel (check out a benelli lifter). The two "ears" can get bent pretty easily, and when the lifter is out of allignment things just don't work quite right. I see you are from Colorado, will you be at the noveske match in April? I could help you at the match if you want. Bob
  2. Most likely the jamming problem with slugs is caused by a bent lifter. This could have happened at any time. C-Rums is not at fault however. Take your lifter out of the trigger group and lay it on a trully flat surface on one side then the other and you will probably see that it is out of straight. A bit of tweaking with two pairs of pliers will likely resolve the issue. Another thing that bugs me (probably just an anoyance but could be the cause of the problem) is how loosly the trigger group sits in the receiver. Mine is a Rhythm, but still basicaly the same as JM. If anyone finds a good solution to that problem I would be interested to know. Good Luck, Bob
  3. I just started playing with 8 short colts in my 686 and a friends 627 8 shot. we started with a 38 357 dillon die set. we had to substitute a 9mm powder funnel to get a flare on the case mouth and a 9mm crimp die as the 38/357 sould not reach the case mouth for the crimp. Try 9mm load data and be sure to start light. My loads are 2.7 gr. clays with a 160 gr. lead round nose .357 to get about 850 fps. 3.7 gr. clays 125 gr. .356 lead round nose to get about 975 fps.

    k frames converted to 9mm or 38 super

I think that 38 super would probably work fine in a .357 if you use .356 bullets and a factory crimp die.
