Well here she is. Jeff at MGM did the work great people to work with.
357 Maximum Shilen match grade barrel .358 bore to shoot 180G hornady SSP bullet
average group 1.5 @ 100y first load I think she will do better once I play with it more.

Had one just like that MGM made up for me....really sorry I sold it off too. Mine liked Sierra 200 gr. RN bullets and Beartooth Hardcast 185 gr. gas checks...either over the top of a max dose of AA1680. Mine was accurate enough we could shoot pds with it.

I had this one built for my daughter, very little recoil. The G2 is short and light. I hope my other daughter wants to hunt also then I can have another one built. This project was built for the IN rifle hunting regs.

I have a T/C Contender in 357 MAX. It is a Bullberry 16 1/2". I have a Leupold 2-7 rimfire scope on top. I use Lil Gun powder under a Hornady SSP 180 Gr. I shot several 1 1/2" groups today @ 150 yards from the bench. It will put them all in the same hole @ 50 yards. Great little woods gun for deer. Years ago, I shot the same cartridge in a T/C Contender with 10" barrel for deer. great combination out to 100 yards.
Good shooting.

.358 bore dia.  Mine will shoot 158 gr hornady hollowpoints to the same point of aim as the 180 gr SSP bullets out to 75 yards. Opening day here in Indiana on Saturday. I'll let you know how it performs on whitetail.  Good shooting.
