.357 remington magnum?

Buds says thier lever guns are all in .357 remington Magnum????

Is that a new cartarige or is that a misprint?

I am looking to buy a lever gun for my Dad in .38/.357 to compliment his other weapons! Any body got one or know where one is?

Remington made the 357 mag. Its kind of like how .38 special is reffered to as such, instead of ".38 smith and wesson special."

Not sure what the confusion is. Generally anything referred to as a .357 magnum is a .357 Remington Magnum. As far as I know anything chambered for .357 Remington Magnum will also fire a .38 special so any of Bud’s .357 Remington lever guns are the 357/38 rifle you are looking for. The 357 Remington Maximum is a different cartridge.

I think your dealer is confused. I doubt that a lever rifle is chambered in 357 Remington Magnum, mostly because there is no such cartridge.

357 Magnum is actually called 357 Smith & Wesson Magnum, because it was introduced by Smith & Wesson (duh!).

Remington came out with the 357 Remington Maximum in 1982. Older Remington chamberings included 35 Remington and 350 Remington Magnum.

So which is it??

"I think your dealer is confused. I doubt that a lever rifle is chambered in 357 Remington Magnum, mostly because there is no such cartridge."

Actually, it could legitimately be called the .357 Winchester Magnum.

Smith & Wesson, when Phil Sharpe finally interested them in the project in the early 1930s, went to Winchester for final ammunition development, the same way they went to Remington for .44 Magnum and .41 Magnum development.

Bud's is wrong.

I looked at Bud's gunshop website and they are listed as 357 Remington Magnum but that is wrong. Even in the description they're listed that way. Have no idea why, must ask them.

I'd agree along those lines. I've heard .357 called "Winchester Magnum" and "Smith and Wesson Magnum," not so much Remington. However, the .44 can be accurately called a "Remington Magnum." I'm sure Buds just made a typo-like mistake.
