If your fav isn't on the list, just post it below.

There are only five voting spots but many great cartridges out there.

.357 magnum


eta It's a two for one deal since you can run .38 special through a .357 magnun revolver.

.32 magnum


Why not just have the .357 & .38 the same and replace .38 with .45LC?

Blasphemy! .38 is major weak-sauce and has no business sharing a vote spot with the mighty .357 Magnum.

Besides, I can't change it at this point.

HUNTING - .44 Magnum. If there's something in the woods so big that a .44 won't drop it, I will be content to leave it alone!

HOME PROTECTION - .357/.38 because it's cheap to practice/plink with and because my wife can use it too.

.357 is the fav, however the .38 wadcutter is fun to target shoot with.

+1

My wife can practice with the .38spl and use .357 for self-defense in the home. I've had her shoot .357 but for the range it can be unnecessarily punishing.

.22LR/WMRF

I have plenty of the others, but I shoot the .22s (for fun) much, MUCH more.

(FWIW, I only use autos for CCW, HD, etc.)

Oh and you really shoudl have put .45 in the poll

45 Colt. 35gr. FFg. black powder and a 250gr cast bullet. Awesome. Try it sometime. I guarantee you'll be impressed. Lots of bad guys bit the dust to that load.
Link Posted: 7/27/2005 5:55:48 PM EDT
38spl
For every 1 357 mag, I should at least 1,000 38spls.
Link Posted: 7/27/2005 6:24:45 PM EDT
My favorite lately is .44Special.....accurate, very little kick...I like it.

I think that .357Mag is probably the most versatile, while .44Mag is just a great knock down round.

Still, this point in time for me....I like the .44 special for target shooting.

.454 Casull

44MAG in a Smith model 29. Powerful enough to be a lot of fun without being too punishing to shoot a lot. It can also be handloaded to fit almost any occasion.
Link Posted: 7/28/2005 4:12:23 AM EDT
I just got a .44 mag, never had a .357 and the .38 special I had wasn't too impressive so for me the choice was easy. The .44 mag...

That's it for me,too! You cannot beat the .357/.38 for plinking,home protection and just plain fun without being a punishing shoot.
Smith and Wesson for me......Model 19-5 4in Nickel with original wood grips! Can't be beat!!!!

No its not, I've seen his 500 S&W 5 shot snubnose airlite revolver. Sure it will break your hand if you fire it, but it only weighs 7 ozs loaded.

.357 mag.

I have 2 revolvers out of 15 handguns and my Model 27 Smith is Sweet, real sweet. The other is a .38.

.357 for me. Easy and cheap to reload with many bullets weights.
Link Posted: 7/29/2005 1:23:39 PM EDT
.357. It's a classic. Also best chambered in the S&W 66 or 686 w/4 or 6 in. bbl. IMO, of course.

The .41 Mag has got to be the most underappreciated revolver cartridge in the past 50 years.

38 special. You can shoot it all day, reloading is beyond cheap, and it can be loaded fairly hot if needed.
Link Posted: 7/31/2005 6:35:46 PM EDT
Either 45 ACP or 45 Colt.



Smith 625 5" for the ACP- my new favorite revolver!
