I think it might make a good candidate to punch out to 360 DW



I was thinking 356 GNR!

A year later and I would still buy two of them and want one just as bad now as I did then. I've got a rack full of .357's and still feel a Ruger Hunter would fit right in and I think there's a whole lot of .357 shooters who would agree.

I hope that you will be able to get a limited run and you get one or two.

I feel like I have this covered with my Bisley 357 7.5 inch.

Best Trigger I have in my collection. If I can see it, I can hit it. Well, eventually.

If Ruger made a .357 Hunter you'd have hundreds of posts saying "I'd buy one if only" (they made it in blued finish, they made it in an 8-shot cylinder, they made it with a 10.5" barrel, they made it in a Bisley). And very few would actually buy one.

Didn't ruger quit making the .357 Maximum due to a flame cutting problem on the top strap?

A 360DW cylinder can be fitted into the standard Blackhawk frame. That would provide for three great cartridges from one gun.

[quote="bogus bill"]Didn't ruger quit making the .357 Maximum due to a flame cutting problem on the top strap?[/quote]


More so, I think primarily, it was a handloader problem in trying to reach ultra velocities using lightweight bullets. Secondarily, it was a problem due to a few gunwriters of the day crying like Chicken Little. The guns didn't fail, in spite of a bit of "flame-cutting". That's why lot's of us are still shooting them today. But, then again, it's only my opinion.

Still emailing the CEO and still waiting. I’d still buy one in a heart beat.

Heck, we all asked for a 32 Hunter (loudly) for years. Just a few replies of why it couldn't be done. ?

Truth is...

Hey, I’ll take one too! Stainless Bisley with the cut outs for a scope please.

I didn’t count but how many so far, 15 or 20 after 2 years for this thread? :D I bet they would sell. The 357 mag is such a popular caliber. Probably 22 LR and 357 mag are the most sold.

If they make em i hope they offer a 9mm cylinder so we can get it reamed for 36” DW or 356 GNR OR 357/44
