Re: Rifle easier to find than .357
you wont be disappointed in the rossi. just remember, as you will likely fire more .38 spec than .357 mag.. Buy a bore snake. The shorter shells in the longer chamber will leave a powder residue ring where the end of the .38 spec case is in the chamber. if you chamber a .357 mag and fire it with that soot in there it can stick and render your rifle useless requiring a cleaning rod be jammed down the barrel to remove it befor eproceeding. swapping ammo from one to the other is fine, just run the bore snake between ammo swaps.
It takes 43 muscles to frown, 17 to smile, and 3 for proper trigger squeeze.
The latest caliber or gear is no substitute for experience and skill. Rifles and cartridges don't make hits -- shooters do.
