    .357 question

    My next gun will likely be a revolver. Most likely a .357 magnum because I think a 44 is overkill for an average person. I know that the 38 special is actually a .357 but how do all these compare to the .357 sig. Would a .357 sig fit in to a .357 mag? What would the differences be between the 38 special and the .357 sig?

    .357 SIG is a semi-auto round and not interchangeable with .38 SPL and .357 MAG.

    Would a 3.57 sig round even fit into the chamber of a .357 magnum? If so if I I attempted to fire one what would happen?

    It wouldn't fit. it's a .40 case necked down to a .38 bullet.

    I am planning to get a revolver in .357 too

    I saw 3 or 4 Pythons at the last gun show I went to that had me drooling. I just need to pool $1K before the next show in September

    So that's what, 20 weeks and 4 days until our next show... so that means I need to earn $6.94 a day to reach my goal. That's like what? Less than one hour of work everyday?! This goal seems attainable

    Had my eye on a .357 Stainless Python. Anacondas are cool too. I saw one King Cobra. It was nice too

    If all else fails I can buy a 686 or a GP100 and then use the remaining dinero to buy ammo haha

    Good luck on your search!

    I have a S&W 686 357 Mag with a 6 in barrel. I just love shooting it, it is dead accurate at 25 yards..I bought it used but in an excellent shape..That's the only revolver I have, but that's all the barrel gun I need.
