How close does the 357 Magnum in a 10" Contender come to a 357 Max in a 7 1/2" revolver?

158s and 180 grain weights.

In a Contender you can seat the 180 XTP long in the second cannelure and get a bit more powder capacity, provided there is enough leade, which generally isn't a problem with them. Basically it becomes a 360 DW and will run right near the Max from a 10" barrel T/C and even excede the Max in a revolver depending on the B/C gap. One of our members had posted his velocities with the mag in the "shooters bench" a while back and was getting some impressive numbers from his Contender.

Even when loaded to standard OAL the 357 really comes to life in the T/C or similar platfform.

I'm getting just shy of 1,600 fps with 180gr XTP seated to the second crimp ring and H110 with my 10" Contender Pistol.

My post should have never been made,it was supposed to be on another forum.
Was wondering about the .358 140 grain Barnes XPB.
