I have a question... there's a 14" .357 Herret barrel with an old 3x T/C scope for sale on EBAY. What's the barrel worth? I have read a lot about the caliber and it's history and figuired it would be a great addition to my hunting line up. Does anyone use this caliber anymore? How is it on deer?
I have had mine for a couple of years I guess its a 10" tube with 2x simmons.Its a real good caliber for me accurate and easy to carry.It shoots 180 gr pills great.One other thing E Bay has always been pretty high to me on barrels.I bought mine from Eds for about $150.00 with dies.
I have a 10" 357 Herrett Barrel that shoots well. I wouldn't hesitate to use it on deer out to 200 yards. Some may stretch it further than that, but that would be my comfort range with it. I have other barrels/guns for longer range.
IMHO, the Herrett cartridges really shine in a 10" barrel. In the 14" barrel there are better rounds available. IE - the 30-30 AI, or 309 JDJ, are great in a 14" barrel, but you won't find many 10" barrels in these calibers. The 30 Herrett, on the other hand, is just about right in a 10" tube. The same could be said for the 35 caliber cartridges, with the 357 Herrett a great choice in the 10”.
