Looking for a 357 Mag barrel
Prefer an early one.


If it jams force it! If it breaks it needed replacing anyway.

Are you looking for Mag or planning a Max conversion? There was a Max barrel for sale in Minnesota last week on A******t. likely still there, but the website is down right now.

edit- it is an encore barrel from EABCO

Once you go max you never go back. I bought a 357 mag new in 1997 that shot really bad this was for IHMSA had a forcing cone throat. Best it ever shot was 3-5" at 25yds so be careful not sure if tc has changed chambering profiles.

I am not dead set on .357 I may do 350 Legend instead.

Eds has several options in stock.

GET A 12 INCH 357 MAG CONTENDER BARREL AND HAVE BELLM RECHAMBER IT TO 357 MAX. GO TO BELLM's SITE, HE HAS GOOS INFO ON PROBLEMS WITH THE T/C STRAIGHT WALLED CASE CHAMBER THROATING ISSUES.


"ADAPT OR DIE". I USE ALL CAPS, NOT BECAUSE I AM YELLING, BUT BECAUSE IT IS AN OLD HABIT FROM MY ARMY DAYS, PLUS IT IS EASIER TO TYPE AND READ.
