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 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.
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
