Did I finally wear out my .357?

I bought a m605 taurus, 2in barrel, 5 shot hammerless probably 4-5 years ago. The cylinder was tight and all was good. 400-500, maybe more, rounds later of 50/50 38 and 357 loads and the wheel has a good bit of play in it, and if you try to creep on the trigger rather than full on pull it the round wont fire, presumably due to a light hit because a second attempt with a firmer pull fires the round. Lastly, I've never tried to empty all 5 quickly and consecutively until yesterday, where on round three (38spl) it hung up. It looked like a piece of the bullet shaved off and got stuck between the wheel and the barrel.

Do I remember hearing something about being able to send this gun back to Taurus and they'll fix it for free?

I had a lightwt taurus 38. With Plain lead ammo that is not crimped the bullet in unfired rounds would creep forward out of the casing due to recoil jamming the cylinder and deforming the bullet. Only gun I ever had that happen in. Not sure about light strikes, but it could be the ammo??

Call Taurus.

I only ever had one issue with a Taurus and it was fixed promptly and for free.

sounds like you shot it enough that it went out of time.
