    The 357 Magnum is a lot more capable in a long gun than it is in a revolver, and can handle deer. I'd call the limit about 100 yards since trajectory and power fall off pretty quickly after that.

    The real draw of the 44 Magnum is factory ammo. It's far more common than 45 Colt ammo and it's all pretty good, much like the 30-06. I've found that 95% of 45 Colt factory ammo is SAA-level stuff...

    I see at least two issues here.

    The first is that you’re trying to do too much too soon. Pick one powder and one bullet, then work with them until you get the accuracy and/or velocity you want...

    The ones I'm writing about are the Flat Top models, which were introduced in 2012. You may be thinking of something else.

    I wish that Jim Stroh was still working. He truly understood revolvers,...

    You can still find them NIB. I saw a couple today, both blued, one of each barrel length. Price was $750-ish.

    I've had a lot of luck with the 900/.4/60 formula in Model 29 variants. The part that most folks screw up is the 10 BHN. Everyone wants to be north of 16 and that's just too hard.
