Herrett

The .357 Herrett was a joint effort of Steve Herrett and gun writer Bob Milek in an attempt to improve upon the performance of the .30 Herrett for big game hunting with a handgun.

The .357 Herrett is formed from .3030 or .32 Winchester Special cases. Intended initially as a big game hunting cartridge for the T/C Contender, it developed a following among silhouette shooters.

In the hands of a skilled marksman the .357 Herrett is capable of taking most North American large game.

Based on the recommendations of Thompson/Center, the maximum loads listed below do not exceed 42,000 P.S.I.
