Since you mention handloads, just a comment that case length becomes more important than in the rifle. As far as I could tell, the Ruger revolver headspaces off the case mouth. If the case is a bit long, or on the long side, it may cause troubles in the cylinder rotation as the case head bumps into the frame at the rear. I wasn't able to determine if the cases were longish, or truly out of specification because it was a "what's the problem here" thing in a group of shooters.
It was fun to shoot and a great application of the cartridge because the range we were at is a pistol only range. That chambering allowed us to have another option for shooting. It was loud, but not bad on recoil.
My cases were all trimmed to SAAMI minimum specs, so no problems there.
