Default Favorite revolver caliber

Pick your own use: self defense, home defense, plinking, hunting, intimidation factor, reloading, varminting, assassination, general use, stockpiling, etc.

What is your favorite revolver caliber? Personally, I've never shot anything bigger than a .357 Magnum.

But .357 is definitely my favorite, for pretty much everything. I reload for it, so the price doesn't bother me. IMO, it is an extremely versatile caliber.

I showed you mine, now show me yours.

(Please specify if you select other)

I like .357, I've shot bigger. Not a fan of the .500 really. Personal favorite of what I have on hand would have to be the 22 mag.
Fun to shoot, accurate, not very expensive, easy to carry alot of it and not bad as far as stopping power goes.
Although I may have to update this based on gun preference alone. I may like my colt better but haven't managed to find any .38 special yet.

Uh-oh. I don't think I can help. Maybe a mod can?

Have admit I enjoy everything from 22 to 357 in revolver calibers. If I had to choose only one it would be my 38 spl cowboy loads. Just a lot of fun to shoot.

I've shot several different caliber revolvers from .22lr to a 500 magnum, my favorite is by far the .357 magnum.

You can use anything from light loaded 38s for plinking, to hot .357s for serious business. Can't beat it.

I have both a .357 and a .44. I like both. But the versatility of the 44 when you are a hand loader is nothing short of amazing. I can load a 300 grain sledgehammer that will make Arnold flinch. And I can load a light bullet with a light load that will kick like a 22. The 357 can do the 22 thing...but forget about the sledgehammer effect.
