T/C .357 Hot Shot Type 2 Barrel with vent rib and custom muzzle break

Finally got my barrel back from the gunsmith. He did a great job and for those of us that like to shoot a lot of shot shells - this is a great way to get a barrel with more than one purpose.

Thanks I am looking forward to shooting it tomorrow as well. I have never thought that .357 mag kicks very hard, but loaded stiff with a heavy charge of H110 or 2400 it can have a bit of a snap to it.

I tend to like heavy bullets so normally load my .357 mag with 158 to 180 gr bullets with 158 being the lightest. My .357 Rem Max gets 180 to 215 gr bullets over a stiff charge of either RL7 or A1680.

The new muzzle break screws in like the choke does, but does not cover the factory muzzle break ports when installed.

I would really like to see some patterns with that thing. What do you use the shot shells for usually?

Usually just pesty jack rabbits and the occasional grouse.

As long as it is within 25' it is a dead critter. It groups fairly tight but I have to take the muzzle break off and insert the choke otherwise it just goes everywhere but into the critter.
