I wonder if Ruger felt they were necessary as I seems I'm always hearing that complaint on the rough chambers. BTW, even the light loads have a bit a a sharp nasty bark. yeah, they are load.

    The rough chamber walls could very well be intentional as the carbine case has quite a taper to it.

      Has any other manufacturer ever offered a revolver chambered in 30 carbine, other than Ruger's Blackhawk?
      I've happened across a number of 30 Carbine semi-auto's over the years but am aware of only that one revolver.

      Taurus has. Shot one and never cared for it but have lusted for one of their Raging Hornets.
