    I want a single action semi-auto if possable with a dovetail for a scope/red dot sight. Has to be a .357 or larger caliber, and I really like the .357 mag, thats what I used last year (TC Contender).

    Any suggestions? I really like 1911's, but have been unable to find one chambered for .357.

    Since when was the .357 a large round? Find a .38 super or a 9x23 if you want to hunt deer with the pistol. It works just fine with the proper load

    I meant proprietary as in Glock created this standard for their pistols, not that just glock manufactures this ammo.
