|The 357 Maximum was introduced in 1983 by Remington and the Ruger Co. for the Ruger Blackhawk Revolver Pistol, and a year later for
the Dan Wesson revolver. The cartridge was too stressful for the revolvers and was dropped some time ago by Remington, the only maker
of this caliber at the time.
It is now only used in the Thompson/Center Single Shot Contender, in pistol or rifle barrels.
This is an obsolete pistol cartridge as no major manufacturers are now making it.
However we have a custom loader producing custom loaded Private Label for us,
The 357 Maximum case is 1.593" long, vs. 1.279" on Winchesters 357 Magnum.
