It's got some decent reviews and seems like its on the hot end without going too crazy like buffalo bore although, from what I've read Buffalo Bore is perfectly safe to use in this revolver. Can't wait to test it out!
    The Buffalo Bore website has notes for each of its offerings, including what guns that particular load is safe in.

    That actually was the first place I looked. The info they had was kind of snarky, "Its safe to shoot out of all steel frame .357's that can handle regular .357 ammo. Please stop asking us if its safe to use in your gun." They did state that they didn't recommend its use in super light allow guns because of a jump crimping issue. Afterwords I checked EAA's website, the .38's do have an alloy frame while the .357's have an all steel frame. In fact they state that the .38's can't be sold in states that have a melt point laws, the .357's can. In fact the 2 inch version of the .357 made Californa's certified handgun roster.


    ***EDIT***

    Appreciate the information and advice from all of you that have real world experience with the caliber/platform. It's been extremely helpful. For a while now I've been looking to get a more powerful handgun (10mm, .357, .44mag) and your posts on these topics where helpful in finding a heading.

    Hot Nursey jouned the club today shooting her first wheel gun and I finally got to shoot my new GP100. I believe her exact quote after shooting it for the first time was "ohhhh, I like that gun".

    I don't know if you guys can tell if I'm excited or not.....

    Just picked up a couple boxes of monarch .357 from Academy today. Holster arrives tomorrow. Too bad my work week starts back up tomorrow

    Anyways what I've learned so far.

    #1 .357 is significantly more expensive than 9mm and .40
    #2 .357 is significantly more powerful than .40 and 9mm on paper.


    Can't wait to get it in the field and test it out live!

    If I could only have one hand gun, it would be a .357 Magnum double action revolver.

    After years with various 357’s, I took the plunge and bought a Ruger Super Blackhawk 44 Magnum.
    It’s not a concealed carry gun by any stretch of the imagination, but there is a sense of ease and comfort that comes when you know that the gun you are holding in your hand can put down almost anything in the Lower 48.

    I have been able to find pretty good deals on .357 ammo here and there both looking locally and on ammoseek.com. Most recently was getting Gold Dot 125grn HP ammo on close out from a local gun shop for $10 a box of 20. Bought the last 7 boxes that they had and the ammo shoots accurately enough out of my Taurus 605.

    I got Monarch which was on sale at Academy. Basically its relabeled Private Partizan, even the rounds say PPU at the top.


    Funny how they stretch the balistic's table to make it sound hotter. The box said 1600 FPS and 800ftp, I looked at their site and it was out of a 10 inch barrel. By my calculations this should be roughly mid 1300 ish with 550ish ftp. Still blows premium 9mm/.40 loads out of the water.
