I bought a new LCR in 327 Federal Magnum about Thanksgiving because it was a six shooter instead of a five I was looking for a little more meat to grasp than the stock Hogue Tamer Grip. So looking at the Hogue website, I thought the Piranha in lava red looked good so I ordered a set and I put them on they fit nice and felt good dry firing. Today we went to the range and I took a box of Black Hills 'Cowboy Action' 32 H&R Magnum semi wad cutters, and a box of American Eagle 327 Federal Magnum JSP 100 Grain. I fired half the H&R, very pleasant and controllable, but it smoked, literally smoked as they were lubed lead rounds and the heat of going through the barrel burnt some of the lube and that smoked, giving away my position in lane three. Fun though. Then tried the 327 Federal, Holy smokes and it was smokeless Wowzer what a painful difference. It just pounded the web of my hand! Tightening both hands helped a little, but six rounds seemed enough for me. I will order and try these longer rubber grips from Hogue using the 327 Federal. The Piranha grips will see good use on the 22 LR LCR. Does anyone know of a better alternative?
