Always dreamed of having a revolver chambered in 357 Remington Maximum

Aside from Ruger making a revolver in 357 Maximum in the 1980?s has any other maker produced a revolver in 357 Maximum?

I have a 12?, 357 Maximum in T/C Contender. Little Thunder.

Wasn?t Dan Wesson?s version based off a 1.4? case length? Didn?t think the chamber was designed for the 1.6? maximum case.

The Dan Wessons were chambered in .357 SuperMag based on a 1.61? case length - pretty much a Maximum clone but designed for heavy bullets.

The Maximum and Super Mag are the same cartridge.

They are THE SAME cartridge....just like the 300 Whisper and the 300 Blackout, or the 475 JDJ and the 475 GNR.....😉

I am thinking of the 360 Dan Wesson case which is only 1.4? long vs the 357 Maximum which is 1.6? long.
