Default Rossi R357S

I have one of these I bought back in the mid 90ís. Itís been my go to brush gun. Taken many deer with it.
But I just picked up a Henry all weather 357 mag.
So what Iím wondering is. Is the Rossi action strong enough to ream it to 360 DW?

303 Britt is my favorite Handi!

Lots of articles about leverguns on his site (and other stuff too).

Spike: first thing I have to ask is what will the 360 do that the 357 magnum won't? Will the 360 handle slugs up to 200 gn? Is there any possible real world advantage to the 360 over the 357 other than putting cash into someone else's pockets. If the 360 is so much better, why don't you just extend the chamber for the 357 Max?? Just askin' ...

I donít want a 357 max. Now that I have the Henry I have the 357 mag covered. The Rossi is just sitting there and I want something new.

303 Britt is my favorite Handi!

Seems like it has been done successfully. Used to be a write up on Wide Open Spaces. Cant find it now. Here is another I found:
