I bought my 4" gp100 about a month ago and have run around 500+ rnds through it. Best thing I ever did it has become my favorite weapon to shoot.

One of the first handguns i bought was a Gp-100 with 4" barrel, Used as Main CCW for a while before switching to my glock, I Traded my 4" for a 6" and now use as HD gun. Couldnt be happier.

I've owned a 6'' ss gp100 for years and it's one of my favorite DA wheelguns. I want to get another one in 3 or 4 inch ss. Do they still make the 3" ? I never see any new ones ever.

I just purchase a Ruger Gp100 of 1998, the stir seems very robust, I still not I tested the weapon in the field of shooting, but its appearance I like much. Here in Spain the ammunition is expensive and to recharge should obtain an authorization, so until I not to buy ammunition I estare happy with touch it and look at it. Indeed my Ruger is a 4-inch, black.

Oscar.

In the 85gr. Low Recoil loading it penetrated more than 12" into ballistics gel and retained vitually all of it's weight without coming apart. This loading also generates only 3.08 ft.lbs of recoil energy - about as much as a .38SPL +P, and much less than the .357Mag. The 100 gr. loading leaves the muzzle at 1400fps. and produces 435ft.lbs of energy. Guns chambered in this offering can also shoot the .32 S&W Short, Long, and .32 H&R. Rumor has it that a carbine for the .327Mag is also in the works. Hope this helps!

PS - If you'd like to see more Ballistics Data, such as penetration data and one-stop shot percentages of various defensive loadings for the most popular handgun calibers, compiled from over 500 documented shootings, check out my posting in Knowledge Base".
'US' is obviously all those that are reading this post smartass. And, in case you haven't noticed, the post is about the GP100 .357mag, not the .327mag. If you want to make 'us' more knowledgeable about the .327mag., start another post.

a GP100 4" .357 mag will be my next gun purchase. it's the best combination of quality and affordability from what ive seen/experienced with wheel guns. I love the .357 magnum round.

I would like to read much more about hunting with a GP-100. I have a 6" stainless and love shooting it. I am mostly a bow hunter for deer, but love gun hunting as well and would really like to hunt with the GP-100. What bullet and load are you using for deer hunting?
