The .357 Magnum has been one of the most popular revolver chamberings for decades. One reason for this is its versatility. A wheelgun in this caliber can shoot anything that will fit in the cylinder, from .38 Short Colt to the hottest .357 loads. It has proven effective in the field, on the range and in the streets, and as self-loaders continue to grow in number, the .357 Magnum revolver’s popularity continues with new models frequently appearing. For example, Ruger has recently modified the GP100 Match Champion that originally came with a fixed, combat rear sight dovetailed into the topstrap by giving it a fully adjustable rear sight. Scroll through the gallery above to learn about six different six-shot .357 magnum revolvers ideal for competition shooting.
