Congrats! Very nice rifle, I had looked and held the .38/.357 magnum and .44/44 magnum a couple months ago. Its a solid, beautifully crafted rifle. I could not decide what caliber to purchase so I walked out without one. They both were gone the next week

I thank you folks for all the kind words about my new rifle, reckon I'll take it out and try shooting it if the weather holds out for a bit. Range report forth coming.

Well here goes, I only took it out to 50 yards as just as I was finishing up it started to drizzle. Not to bad as they were all off hand. BTW I think I'll leave the stock sights as they do give a good sight picture.

DSCN1952.JPG First three shots, note I was about as steady as a leaf in a hurricane.

DSCN1953.JPG Second three shots saw some improvement.

DSCN1956.JPG The final six shots after some informal plinking, also at 50 yards, looks like it is a keeper.

The more you shoot, the better you get!

Congratulations, that was a very nice Christmas present. Sounds like you are going to make good use of it.

Had a ball even though the weather was threatening, and it started to sprinkle a bit. I shot 20 rounds of Armscor .357, 158 grain RN, 10 rounds of Sellier Bellot .38 158 grain, and 20 rounds of my hand loads which were Sierra JSP 158grn. in front of 15.8grns. of 2400 along with a Federal Small Magnum primer. In fact the last group I shot (6 rounds) was using my handloads which it seems to really like. I would have benched the later loads, but I didn't want to take the time to set the bench up, before it started raining. Hopefully next time. I can't believe this weather "it never rains in Southern Nevada".

Not sure what is wrong with the thread on this, but a made a big mistake on the amount of 2400 powder it should have 14.8grns. I tried to edit it but my computer kept locking up, really weird. DO NOT USE THE 15.8 GRAINS OF 2400 POWDER BEHIND A 158GRN. BULLET IN .357 CARTIDGES!!!

14.8 is very close to maximum. Sorry for the misinformation, that is why I hate to disclose any of my reloading data, read those manuals and adhere.

Congrats, I am wanting a .357 L/A rifle as well but trying to get a Winchester or Marlin. I have a Henry 22 mag but I just dislike the tube feed rifles, I'd rather have the loading gate but I really love the smoothness of the Henry action. I have a Winchester 1894-1994 Trapper 44 magnum already and love the pistol caliber rifles. I haven't had any problem from it at all, I like the fact that I can shoot 44 spl out of it when I do not what to handle the magnum recoil.

Enjoy that beauty

The only problem with the tube fed magazine is getting the inner tube out of the gun in order to reload the gun. The inner tube has a rubber gasket on it that seems to make the extraction of the tube difficult to remove. I've removed that little gasket and it makes reloading a breeze however once the last round is chambered it makes the tube rattle. Reckon I'm going to have to devise a new gasket that makes the tube removal a lot less difficult, my fingers are starting to ache just trying to turn that dang thing.

Anybody else have that trouble?
