For a production Revolver it would be a S&W 460 winning out,but a 44 Mag will do fine at 100 yards.
The Thompson Contender is probably one of the best,since you can quickly change out in a multitude of calibers.
For precision long range pistols the Remington XP-100 or a Savage Striker are the go-to guns.

My old man has a XP-100. They are insanely accurate and come from the factory with a 1.5lbs trigger. 100 yard shots are easy.
I agree with Olympus, here is one of mine it is chambered in .243............

Heres a pic of my 460..... If your lookin for caliber variation, well you have 460 mag, 454 casull, or 45 long colt that you can use! Its a beast but I think my 44 super blackhawk hurts me more to shoot!

That's awesome! .243 would make an excellent choice for a rechamber. The .221 is a varmint round, but with the .243 you could use that on deer. Very cool.

I had a ported and scoped 10 1/2" New Model Super Blackhawk 44 mag that I could hit bulls eyes at 75 yards. The last deer I shot with it was about 80 yards,never shot it beyond that though.

To the OP, as you notice, all are of calibers (except the .22lr) that have very minimal drop at a distance of 100yds.

Try a .45ACP, 9mm, or .38Spl, and bullet drop is enough to be a hassle.
The 10mm is almost as flat shooting but still has some drop.

Ted Nugent killed a hog at 100 yards with a 10mm. I saw a guy ring a gong at 200 and 250 yards with a 10mm Glock 20 with open sights.

I'm not saying the 10mm cannot do it (I've do it regularly shooting at clay pigeons strewn around in the back stop at 100+ yards).

But it does get interesting with a .45ACP.

What are you trying to do at those ranges? Are you just trying to hit steel plates or are to harvest game? There's a big difference.
