A: Hi Edwin! Yes, the Hi Shok will fit the RA, but make sure you fire a box or so to make sure YOUR particular RA will function well with the HP round. This should be the first thing we do before settling on a carry or home defense round.

A: This has been a very popular question among shooters who frequent the range, maintain a decent amount of magazines, or carry without cycling rounds through their magazine other than testing purposes.
Given the tests we have performed along with some research regarding factory magazines and other reputable aftermarket manufacturers, our consensus is: The storage of your loaded magazine will not have an influence on your springs any more or any less than storing your magazine without any rounds. Some shooters will prefer to load their magazines to full capacity, then take 1 round off the top. This will allow the magazine release to capture the magazine completely when the topmost round is pressed against the side.
If you are using your magazines on a regular basis, malfunctions will usually be present if the springs are starting to wear out. Though this should not be expected with higher quality mags (Glock, Sig, Springfield, Kimber, CMC, WC, etc) until they have been cycled many, many countless times. Most likely this would only be experienced among shooters who frequently shoot on a weekly basis or more, over a long period of time. With all the stretching and compressing a magazine experiences throughout its life, this exercise is what will consume the life of the spring, rather than being stored in a compressed or non compressed condition. There are also "extra pressure" aftermarket springs available to take advantage of, though this would be an optional upgrade.
As you have experienced with your shotgun from being loaded many years, I would expect no less than it to function flawlessly from continued storage with rounds in the tube.
Given your setup and situation, I would find little to nothing being in need of change. I would recommend using factory magazines or those of high quality if reliability is of utmost importance, perhaps saving other surplus or "cheap" magazines for range or practice.
I hope this information will help you in your decision for future carrying or storage applications.

A: While it mostly depends on what the shooter is comfortable with using, and the defense application, either the 410 or Long Colt in a jacketed hollow point is preferred. The 45 ACP round will only chamber in a semi auto pistol, unless modifications are done to the revolver, such as a moon clip. This is usually not desired as accuracy and performance will be reduced as the revolver has been designed for a different caliber.
