No! Too light a bullet, too slow. If you must use a pistol go with nothing less than a .44 Mag, .454 Cassul or .460 Ruger is better. A rifle is much better. 357 can be adequate if used properly - first dont use expanding, hollow nosed bullets as they often break apart on or just under the surface of the tough hide of a bear next keep in mind that to stop a bear quickly, or any animal, requires extreme trauma from rapid blood loss (as its not often likely you will be lucky enough to hit a fatal spot like a spinal cord under "combat" conditions) - the 357 bullet when not expanding will penetrate very well but doesnt cause enough blood loss and trauma to drop a bear quickly so you need to fire as many rounds as possible as quickly as possible to create as much blood loss as possible a larger caliber like the 44 magnum is better because not only is it larger for casing more blood loss but its fast enough to cause a shock wave in side the body that causes severe injury and trauma - problem with high power handgun rounds is that unless you are very skilled its hard to get off a second or third round quickly so your first round has to be successful also dont shoot the head straight on as the 357 will just glance off the skull - if the bear has his head down aim for the spine behind the head - if the head is up shoot for the neck and chest area i use a ruger redhawk 44 magnum revolver for bear but i also train a lot with it - if you go with a powerful caliber you must train with it a lot more than with a lower power gun
That would be 38cal. ammo
Best left to a good gunsmith
NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DO NOT TRY THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yes, but, not recommended.
The Lawman mk III Colt 357 mag is valued at $1,000 in excellent condition. Good condition value is $800.
38 Special and .357 Magnum.
Yes, stock has a few dings in it.
Winchester, Marlin, Rossi (and maybe a few others) make lever action rifles in .357 Mag... I personally wouldn't pick that cartridge for anything other than a pistol, or if I were shooting in a cowboy match (where the .357 isn't allowed for the most part, anyway...) But if you need a long gun in .357 Mag, there are plenty out there. Good luck.
No. They both use a different diameter bullet and the case is different. The .357 Sig case is a bottle-necked version of the .40 S&W case. The .357 mag is a longer version of the .38 Special.
Derringer 2 Shot, 357 Mag, SN 929, what is the value
357 case is @ 1/10 of an inch longer.
Not marked AFAIK
It CAN be, but would have it checked by a competent pistol smith first.
Depending on the weight, possibly, but in most cases, accuracy may not be good.
.429 INCHES A 38 SPECIAL IS .357....
50- 400 usd
I am trying to make a deal with a coworker who says his 4006 came as a dual caliber gun .40 cal and .357 mag. I know the gun cannot be .357 mag so it must be a .357 sig. I have not yet seen the .357 barrel. I do know that Bar-Sto makes a .357 sig barrel as I just read the article on reloading .357 sig. Search google for 4006*.357 sig.
