I purchased a ruger police service six in 38 special and was wanting
to mill out the cylinder to except 357 mag .. Is the cylinder and
frame strong enough for the magnum ??

prrbably cheaper to buy a new .357...........even considering if the old gun is strong enough..........I wouldn't do it

Not a good idea . Ive never heard it recomended and wouldnt do it . Cheaper to but a new gun . Im not a big Ruger guy but Im not sure they sold many of the .38 SP it might have a preimium ??? However if you decide to do it that Ruger is probably your best bet . Dont Do It .

Suffice to say NO reputable gunsmith would touch a job like this.

The big difference between .38 Special and .357 Magnum revolvers is the level of heat treating they get.

The .38 is heat treated to a lower level and CANNOT withstand the pressures.

With even very strong, well made revolvers like the Ruger, you'd be converting a revolver into.....a hand grenade which you'd be holding in your hand when it went off.

This is a good discussion.

Can somebody point me to a gunsmith that will convert my 22 lr bolt action to 22-250?

Thanks
