Very nice work.   Do you have a preference on barrel length on the 357 max?   Is there a "sweet spot" on length for this cal?

Thank you Greenjay!

The 357 Maximum is such an efficient and versatile cartridge, that it works well with most any barrel length...

I would be hard pressed to pick just one specific barrel length. I would go with a 16 1/2" barrel on the "short side" and a 23-25" barrel on the longer side. I have shot all barrel lengths in the 357 Maximum and me personally, I just like the longer barrels. My test results, shown here on the forum, show a 16 1/2" barrel to be just as accurate as a 25" barrel. I would let shooting distance and hunting preference dictate my preferred barrel length...

With the T/C Encore pictured above and with the proper loads, I would not hesitate to take it on a varmint hunt, with possible shots out to 400+ yards, or on a deer stand with shots from 30 yds. to 300 yds.. This is one 357 Max that can literally do it all and not think twice about any of it....

I have spent the last few days reading the information on this forum on the 357 maximum project and other projects you have going on here. (Love the work your doing with the 357 and rifle builds). I have to say your really in a class of your own here David. The talent you have is truly some thing and you not afraid to share every thing you know with your public. Such a rare quality these days, very humble and yet with a strength. I truly admire it. Absolutely no criticisms on my part here. I wish to cheer you on and see just what level you may take this to. Even this forum is in a class of its own. The people behind the posts exude a friendly nature and really are interested in you personally and wish to see you succeed . Good comments for all of you. Some genuine gratitude to you David and to all your associates.
