I have a 6" stainless GP100. It's my woods gun and for that purpose, I have Cor Bon 200grain Hard Cast ammunition.

It's not a real common round, it's designed to break/penetrate bone. There are sometimes bears where I camp in the mountains, so it's my bear load.

You can buy it at Ammunition to Go. Here's a link: Ammunition To Go : 20rds - 357 Mag Corbon 200gr. Hard Cast Ammo [HT357200HC/20] - $26.95

Nice. I really like the finish.

Ruger makes or at least they used to make GP100's with 3" barrels. They're pretty scarce though.

The 3" barrel, short shroud and double action only setup were factory. This was a revolver used by a Canadian Police unit and re-imported by Century Arms International. I picked up the gun in like new condition and sent it off to Marc Morganti at Gemini Customs after seeing what he did for a buddies Smith & Wesson. Marc is amazing with what he can do to Rugers. He specializes in SP-101's and does some fantastic work on 1911's as well. Check out his website to see some of his work.

Some of the things he did for me was to tighten up endplay in the cylinder and retime the action as well. He recut muzzle crown for accuracy and chamfered the cylinder bore entrances to help reloads. He did one of the slickest trigger jobs I have ever felt. He dehorned the whole gun and removed the billboard on the barrel. The gun has been bead blasted as part of the custom job as well. The gun is amazing to shoot and I have had several offers to buy it.

A lot of folks have told me that you cannot effective or comfortably carry such a large gun.....I disagree and with the right holster have proven them wrong. I carried it with two of my naysayer budies to an informal competition. There was a 4.5 hourd drive, shooting and then the drive home before revealing that I had the gun on the whole time. They were amazed. Here are a few more pictures:

Default GP 100 ammo

Greetings gp 100'ers,

I'm picking up a new Gp 100 (4 inch, 357, stainless) tomorrow at Gander Mtn. I'm not purchasing ammo/cleaning supplies/or anything else until I research each topic - this is a big part of the fun for me. I have enjoyed reading everyone's opinion and it seems the gp 100 people are very devoted to this firearm - any downsides to it?

It is a workhorse tank. I have probably put over 2k rounds through mine so far and it's still just as fun to shoot as the day I picked her up.
