I'm in, I'll take a .357 Bisley Hunter any day, but I'd prefer a 6" bbl.

As an owner of 3 Redhawks in .357mag, I'm not really a fan of the 8 shot, as I've found the .357mag Redhawk to be terribly large and heavy for what it is. If I weren't pushing more case capacity up the tail of them, I wouldn't have the ones I have. The 8 shot was a bad move, in my book.

I'd be VERY intrigued to see a mid-frame Ruger Hunter in .357mag.

A share your opinion about 357 Magnum in Redhawk. Same for 357 in NMBH, just too much steel and weight for such caliber. Midframe Flattop is the way to go.

I suppose if they DO bring out a .357mag Ruger Blackhawk Hunter, I'll buy one and ream it out to .357/44 also, that could be a good time!

Never had a chance to use 357/44, but from what I found there is case setback issue with this round. Apparently, problem is solved with 35/41; 356 GNR https://www.reedercustomguns.com/tc/cartridges.htm . Regarding statement that "This cartridge is a necked down 41 magnum and gives the 357 bullet as much energy as a 44 magnum.", is something hard to believe, unless pressure is on 454 level. Also, barrel erosion must be issue if used frequently, just MHO.

I scoped my GP100 6 inch short lug. It is definitely a hunter. 200 gr magnus either 296 or h110 very accurate.

357 mag hunter with 6.5” barrel would balance perfectly.
If ruger made SS 357 maximums, I would purchase 4, or 5

A 357 Bisley in 6.5 barrel that would look similar to what was released in 454 Casull would be the ultimate configuration, but I'd also buy a Bisley Hunter in 357. Lipsey's could continue the 6.5's theme they've already started. Similar to how other distributors have a config that is uniquely theirs.
