Uberti .357 Model 1873 Replica


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


Took it to the range yesterday. It consistently groups around FIVE INCHES at 50 metres from the bench - brand new gun. All cases were burnt black on the outside, as was the top/front of the carrier block - oversized bore?

I spoke to the Uberti/Beretta warranty manager today and he wants it back ASAP for inspection/testing. It's on it's way now.

The ammo used was Winchester .357 125 Gr jacketed HP and .38 Spl 158 Gr Lead RN, basically all I could get.

While this may be a purely rifle problem has anyone used a factory .357 round that performs significantly better through a rifle?

I've found PMC 357 ammo works well through the lever guns I've used, but as you know its all trial and error

I, had a Rossi for years in .357 .With a over size bore ! It hated factory ammo yet shot acceptable groups with hand loads!

I have been a Magtech 158gr JSP fan, but it's difficult to get at the moment. However, it's a fine, if much derided by the purists, round for accuracy from a 4" revolver, and even better from an 18" 1894C. I haven't hunted with it yet (pigs are in short supply in SE Qld 'cos of the drought - I'm waiting for Dave H to invite me to SA to teach me a thing or two ).
