Ruger had a habit of first run model not having a prefix example 1234, 2nd year and on had a serial like 50-1234.
It’s a nice, unaltered (no transfer bar conversion) unusual caliber.
Probably not for someone who doesn’t reload, my guess is it would benefit from accurately trimmed matching brass, loaded for a revolvers specifics.
Long skinny round with a little bit of taper that headspaces on the case mouth.

Those revolvers are high on my wish list.
Another one that’s throws my “needs only” lifestyle in the crapper.
I reload .30 carbine as our M1 has been our PCC for decades.

I almost bought one. Talked myself out of it, and I’m still ok with it…

I shot one of those years ago. It was not a quiet gun.
