You mean Ruger New Model Super Blackhawk, not S&W.

From a 4/4.5 inch barrel, some loadings of 357 Magnum might have up to 1 inch bullet drop from 25 to 50 yards, so not much. The drop from 38 Special is going to be greater, of course.

The Ruger Blackhawk with the 6.5 inch vs 4.625 inch barrel fires a round at least 200 fps faster for most 357 Magnum loadings, so yes, it will further minimize bullet drop. However, I don't think this is necessarily the issue that you're experiencing with the shorter barrel when you move to 50 yards.
