The .357 Maximum was developed in the early 80's by Ruger and Remington Arms as a silhouette cartridge for the Blackhawk revolver. This beefed up, elongated .357 Magnum has also been chambered in Dan Wesson revolvers as well as several single shot rifles and pistols including the T/C Contender. Game laws in several states have changed, and are now allowing pistol caliber rifles for deer hunting, giving new life to this once obsolete cartridge.

Please note: .357 Maximum cases cannot be trimmed down to the .357 Magnum length due to the internal taper of the case!
