But I sense that most have little or no understanding of the 357 Redhawk's capability when it comes to elevating the handloaded 357 Magnum cartridge.
It should not sacrifice an iota of strength for increased capacity; it is about the strength.

If you just buy ammo it's a bit heavy and big.
If you've had repeated surgeries on both upper extremities that weight seriously mitigates recoil. Gotta love that.

I don't care personally about 'looks'; means nothing, unless we're talkin' girls :mrgreen:

I wish (ok I have often lusted about it) Ruger offered the GP 100 in a convertible with an extra 9X23mm cylinder. With a 9X23 you could run 9X23, 38 super, 9X21 and 9X19mm. 6 shot with moon clips. It would probably be just as popular as the WC GP 100.

Convertibles work best in the single actions. Removing the cylinder on a GP100 is pretty tough. Maybe a dedicated 9mm would be cool.

I admit, as a 9x19 and 9x21 fan, I would buy one.
Or two :mrgreen:

Yes RH or SRH preferably with 4-5" tube. They are great BIG guns and I even shoot mine DA!

I used all my Redhawks --7.5" 357, 5.5" 41, 44, and 45 Colt-- EXCEPT the 5.5" 357 in USPSA competition.

Man I gotta lotta speedloaders.

I'd buy if they made the frame out of plastic and aluminum, like the LCR. It would probably be more of a Super LCR than a Redhawk. It would give the Smith & Wesson 327 some real competition. Light, but without the expensive scandium.

No! Try to find a speed loader for that'un. I wish Ruger would make The Redhawk in 357 mag as a production gun. I'll take a 5 1/2 inch Stainless, WO & RR. I'd buy a 357 Redhawk! bhk

I would buy an SP100 .357 with a 7 round cylinder and 4 inch barrel in a heartbeat. I have a 686 plus with a 6 inch barrel. That is too long to carry.

No +1 Why buy a revolver that only needs wheels to be an artillery piece, and then drill itty-bitty holes in the barrel/cylinder. My POV. steve
