I like the .357 and have used it on multiple whitetails. Using the proper bullet and bullet placement is the key. A 35 caliber hole through the vitals is a dead deer. I have never had a whitetail go more than 60 yards. I sight my gun dead on a 75 yards.


Yep.......

FWIW I ordered the 5" blued GP100 44 Special last week, I should have in within the next few days. A few weeks back I picked up the 6" unfluted GP100 357 Mag.

Thanks! Yes it's the Talo version.

s4s4u the fit and finish are quite good. I've owned several blued Ruger revolvers over the years and this one is the nicest finished one I've had. The wood inserts on the grips are real nice. The cylinder is the same length as the 357 Mag version but it's a little wider, not by much, but slightly. Cylinder lock up is nice and tight.

The 5" barrel balances quite well. The hole at the end of the barrel is a lot larger though!

I'd agree, but Ruger isn't offering a GP-100 in 44 mag ;-)

That's why they make Redhawks! Yay!
