Which caliber would you prefer in a New Vaquero 4"?
 
.45 LC or .357 Mag?

I just bought one in .357, it's a ton of fun. I went .357 because of ammo costs and I already had dies for .357. I also like the option of shooting .38 Special out it. I know .45 Colt is the traditional caliber, but I want the flexibility of .357. You can't go wrong with either one.

45 LC can be loaded to 357 specs and damn near 44 mag specs. or loaded very light like a 38 special. The 45 colt caliber coupled with a Ruger is one of the most versatile calibers out there.

How about .44-40?

I would prefer a long colt but I voted 357 mag. You have to reload to take full advantage the 45 LC.

The same is true of the .357 Magnum.

Or the .44 Magnum.


Or the .41 Magnum

45lc :D.....

.45 Colt's only problem is the brass is thinner than a .44Rem mag, so full house loads tend to lengthen the brass significantly, if you're doing a lot of them, it's a pain trimming and the case life is shorter

.45LC just because it's a vaquero
