Welcome to Reeder Custom Guns


The Spotlight revolver cartridge for this week is the 356 GNR. In the picture the 357 Magnum is on the left. The much more powerful 356 GNR is on the right. This is a great cartridge for game up to cow elk and such. Quite a few 250 to 400 lb African critters have been taken with the 356 GNR and most with one shot. I have taken game here in the states up to Nilgai size, about 400 lbs with it. The 356 GNR is based on a 41 Magnum case necked down, is extremely easy to reload, and is mostly chambered in revolvers but can also be chambered in Contenders and Encores. The 356 GNR will put a 125 grain bullet out of a revolver at well over 2000 fps, a 140 grain bullet at almost 1900 fps, a 158 grain bullet at near 1900 fps, and a 180 grain LBT style bullet at over 1700 fps. A great all around hunting cartridge and easy to reload. We keep dies in stock and rechamber Ruger Blackhawks, Redhawks, S&W Model 27, 28 and 627 revolvers in the 356 GNR. The Ruger GP-100 can also be chambered in 356 GNR in a 5 shot cylinder conversion.

Misc Tips and Tidbits

When Shipping Your Gun

An important note on sending your base gun in. Please do not strip it of the parts and just send the frame in. That just puts us having to call around all over trying to find the inner parts. That also puts you way behind those that sent the entire gun in. I got a gun in yesterday with a bare frame and barrel and another one today. These two fellows are probably going to have to wait twice as long as someone else that sent in the full base gun.

As of now I will no longer accept partial guns in as a base gun unless you clear it with me beforehand. We are all working 12 hour days trying to get your guns done in a reasonable time and I simply don't have the extra time to sit and make calls all over trying to find the parts that you left out. When you send in your gun, you can take it apart if you feel better doing so or if it makes sending it easier with UPS or Fed Ex, but make sure and put all the internal parts in baggies and send them with the gun.
