My next purchase is going to be a .357 mag. Looking for suggestions on what make/models I should be looking at. I already have a carry gun so I'm looking for an accurate reliable gun for target shooting and hunting. Price range up to 1200.

A 4" is ideal providing you can conceal it. Better velocity and better energy. If you had a Ruger SP101 (5 shot) it is a tad lighter than the GP100. Both great. I have used S&W, Colt, Taurus, Walther, as a LEO and think the Ruger is great. As good or better than S&W for a lot less $. Colt is excellent but again the hi price. Go to a gun store and play with a bunch of them before you decide.

Wow.

Does Korth Make the World’s Best Revolver?

"“The frame, crane and even the sideplate are completely milled from drop forgings. All components are subjected to a proprietary process to achieve a surface hardness of up to 60 HRc (Rockwell c scale). Approximately 600 individual operations are required to manufacture one revolver. Of these operations, only about 30% are actual machine work. The rest, all of 70%, are true ‘man-hours’: Hand work, fitting, inspection and making sure that every aspect of the gun is flawless. "

Nice, but way too rich for my blood!

Most of the development of the .357 was Elmer Keith. It was for stopping people and does a grand job at that. I've shot several (357's not people) but do not have one. In the wake of the incident in MO I feel the want to purchase something, a .357 would be a nice addition to the collection. My only problem is between Ruger and S&W, and barrel length, I have a M&P 40c for concealed (nice).

If you really want the Rolls Royce of 357's take a look at Korth. I have no idea what makes them worth so much but they sure are proud of them.

Colt Python if you want a Rolls Royce. Ruger GP100, Ruger SP101, S&W, Dan Wesson. Lots of good ones for a fraction of the cost of a Python. Python is great, I carried one as a deputy for a long time. I bought it new for $125.00. Now you are looking at $2000.-$3000.

Ruger GP100 - .357 mag Built like a tank, very accurate, trigger can be adjusted quite nicely for target shooting... Not super expensive I have a stainless 6in and I love it

Why limit yourself to SA in a .357?

I quit teasing myself by watching the auctions on Pythons a while ago, but when I checked Gunbroker before making my post, most of the NIB's with bona fide bids on them are up in the $3K range, and those are the "plain Jane" Pythons with 2-3 days left to bid. They'll probably go up a bit before the hammer falls, maybe not to $5K though. Regardless, even at $2K I'm not buying right now. Sad
