What is your favorite overall caliber for a revolver handgun?
Favorite Revolver Caliber? .44 mag!
If I ever buy another revolver for hunting it will be a .460 S&W. That is about the most practical choice today. You have full house .460's for big game, .454Casual for big/medium game and .45 colts for cheap fun. What more could you ask for?
Fav revolver caliber?
RON L here = SERESURPLUS
I guess I'm old school again, as I still Like a simple 357 Magnum coupled with a 6" barrel and a good set of rubber grips! It shoots well, it hits well and Nope, not the most easy to carry, but will usually end a gunfight in short order! Plus, you can shoot less expensive 38 SPCL in it and do no harm!
The only one I have tried is .38. This is my fav for now.
The only one I need and use is 38Cal in my 38 Colt Cobra 2nd addition.
.45 Colt - Fun on the range...
.357 mag! Does what I need.
I'll be the oddball. .41 mag. Does what the .44 does with flatter trajectory and less (percieved) recoil. 170 JHC @1600 fps to 210 SWC GC at 900. The only problem is availability of components. I have been shooting the .41 for long enough that I have plenty of cases (1000) and I cast my own bullets. When I see jacketed bullets being closed out at reduced prices I buy all they have.
First post and near to my heart. .41 always.
.22LR...cheap to shoot, and very accurate. Now, I do own and love my .32s, 38s, .357s, .44s, and .45s, but the .22 is the best over-all...IMHO
.38 special is my all-time favorite revolver ammo, it can be loaded in a variety of ways and still be quite accurate. For grins, a big bore is hard to beat, though, like .44 mag & .45 Colt.
.45 acp is my favorite pistol ammo.
I would hardly do without my 22 LR Single Six. But If I could only have one it would be a 32 H&R Mag.
Um.. it used to be 38.. lately it's 40 S&W but then I have one of those rare as Hen's teeth model 610's.
Hey Nozzle rag. Nice to see I'm not alone in my love of the .41.
This is tough, as I enjoy so many. I'd have to say the .357. A close second being the .45LC.
I'm with you Chorst, .357 then .45LC.
45 ACP, then 357. My 5" 625 with full moon clips is an absolute hoot.
.357 Hands down. Just saw the S&W M&P 340(hammerless), gives me a hardon.
A .357 magnum with qualilty factory ammo should fill just about any need, unless of course you want to shoot Alaskan bears.
For practice / plinking you can load it with .38 special ammo, and there is a wide selection of bullet designs and loadings in both .38 & .357.
I own two. A S&W model 19 (no dash) that I carried as a duty gun for many years, and a Taurus model 617, 2", 7-shooter, that I use as a carry gun when in the mood to carry a revolver.
old school round
The 357 magnum in a S&W model 19-3 has never let me down.
But I am adulterous when it come to revolvers .32, .38/357, 41, 44spec/mag, and 45LC. I have a love affair with all of them!
