I've got a DW in 357Max, that started me into reloading. It was too good a deal to pass up. The round can be loaded down to 38 specs or up to the max's potential. It's a very flat shooting round out to 100yds and can be easily manage to 200yds as it was very popular in ram shooting til frame cutting and forcing cone premature wear forced it into obscurity. With heavy cast bullets 180 to 200gr, the problems aren't any worse than any magnum revolver. Mine's had many hundreds of rounds through it and just last year I sent it in for a tune up and it's like new, ready for a few hundred more rounds. I bought it in 1992 so I feel I've got my money's worth out of it.
