I have a new vaquero in 45 colt and faced the same delemah. In rhe the the 45 colt won and i have no regrets. Love the round and i like to reload. Not saying that h have to with the 45 colt but it saves a little money and you can get more versatile ballistics. In the end tho it comes down to what u want.

Check to see if you can get the .45 ACP cylinder also. That would add to your ammo options with all of the cheap bulk import ammo around.

I have it in both and prefer the .357 only because it is less expensive to reload. Also have other guns in .357 but only the one in .45 colt.

My Vaquero is a .357 so that's what I voted for.

.44 Special, if they make one. If they don't, they should get a clue. Heavy .44 Special handloads were the origin of the .44 Mag.

Not in the New Vaquero, it can't. The Vaquero is smaller than the Blackhawk and not made for hi-power loads. You could probably get away with 21 kpsi pressure loads, but I wouldn't go higher. The "Old" Vaquero, on the other hand, was simply a fixed sight Blackhawk and could handle the hi-power loads.

Thanks for that info. I had thought all Vaquero's were Blackhawks but with different sights.

So, I just learned that Ruger trimmed down the Vaqueros. Was this done to make it even more like the original Colt SAA's?

I have the 45 Colt. Great gun. For 357 I shoot my S&W. I just think SAA should be 45 Colt.
