Im curious why the OM Blackhawks were offered in different barrel lengths from 1 caliber to another? I wish you could get a 7.5" .357 Magnum.

I do not know for sure. But I did hear how Bill would figure out how many barrels he could get out of a long piece of steel, (barrel blank) in different lengths so as to not have any waste.
I'd say that they would test things like balance, velocity etc before deciding upon what barrel lengths to offer.

JUST MY GUESSING here.

I'm wondering if there is a listing of the barrel lengths offered by model and chambering?

Currently curious as to the lengths available in the OM .357?
