I tried using one of these for home defense once... it was a poor choice.

Now you gone and done it. I want a 300 B/O. And as far as being a smart a$$, I don't offend easily.

If not, who made it please?

.357 is one of my favorite rounds. Excellent performance for HD or carry.
Yes, it is a Timber Wolf. When I got it, I didn't know that it was as scarce as hens teeth.

Nice...but I'm a little concerned about using handloads for home defense.

As of now, I'm using a .300BO pistol also but with 110gr Barnes, worked well on a deer this year lol

My preferred HD gun is my MPX-P suppressed running subs.

Does a .357 rifle kick that much? I've never shot one, great ballistics round for sure but curious about following up shots.

.357 out of a rifle has very little recoil.

I have been shooting 158 gr JHPs out of it and there is very little recoil.

I started laughing the first time I fired some very hot Federal 125 grain 357 out of my Henry. I think these are very punishing loads even in my Ruger GP100, and in the lever rifle it was barely more than a 22 with recoil. I could hardly believe it. No muzzle flash to speak of either.

In case anyone is interested, I think that Baltimore's Best has one for sale... check out their "In the shop now" thread.

Yep... here it is... pretty nice looking. If I hadn't already bought a lot of other stuff recently, I would be thinking about this one.

Yeah, I have a Rossi M92 that chambers .38 and .357. No real difference in the two except the .357 is louder and gets there faster.

As others have said, very little recoil. You are looking at 1000-1200lb-ft of energy out of an 18" barrel. About 5.45x39mm levels of energy, but a much heavier, wider and slower round. Great for short range goodness.

Ballistically think of it like a .30-30 at 80% of the velocity
