Range Review S&W 640-1 with Federal .357 magnum 110-grain Semi-Jacketed Hollow Points
Please CLICK HERE for my first blog entry regarding this S&W 640-1 magnum revolver.
Please CLICK HERE for my blog entry about a similar magnum revolver, the Ruger SP101.
Below are some targets and comments from a 11/29/2014 range session.
As a baseline for my range sessions, I use the Illinois Concealed Carry qualification criteria of using NRA B27 target(s) and firing thirty rounds total; ten rounds each at distances of five, seven, and ten yards (fifteen, twenty-one, and thirty feet); of the thirty rounds fired, twenty-one of the thirty rounds fired must be on paper AND inside the scoring area.
Obviously, I have plenty of room for improvement using this revolver with this load. The best that I can say about this range session is that all thirty-five rounds fired were "in the numbers" and no rounds were "off paper." IMHO, the cumulative pain from recoil (and anticipating the pain) is a major distraction for me. Centennial J-Frame revolvers have a nice, long, rolling trigger pull and the effects of cumulative pain mess with my mental focus and trigger technique. It only takes a hint of a flinch or a bit of a wigwag for me to alter a J-Frame's point of aim.
