Essentially it has then become a .30-30?
I too prefer 158 soft points in the 357 mag. I will be hunting with 180 XTPs in this Maxi. I do have some 125 XTPs to play with. Bet they 125's would be hell on a yote!I dont like 125's for Deer in a 357. I use Rem 158 soft nose. These work the best for 2 out of my Contender and Model 27 but I also have some 180 XTP loads from Top Notch Ammo that were deadly.
The 360 Dan Wesson is in between and Starline still makes brassFor those with 357 Mag Contender barrels, they are known to have long chambers in them. Try a Max case in them they may just fit!
Even if they won't fit a full Max case, it will probably be somewhere between Mag and Max, if you are a handloader you could cut Max cases to fit the long chamber and work up a load for it. Call it a
357 Mag Mag or 357 Mini Max! LOL
That Maxi looks like it would be a good choice for the states that require straight wall rifle rounds. Probably lots of short range killing power without the punishing recoil of some larger calibers.
