Barrel question

Is the barrel of a 357 revolver the same as in 38 special?
All I'm really asking for here is a knife that will not jam and a unicorn that doesn't need sharpening. Will_Power
It's been my experience that all you really need to harvest a deer is a car. They come right through the windshield just fine. 357ross

They both have the same bore if that is your question.

The correct groove diameter for .357 Magnum and .38 Special barrels in .357 inch. The bore diameter is .008 inch smaller at .349 inch.

And so it goes.

Short answer: yes.

As the cylinder of a revolver is where the chamber is located unlike a semiautomatic or single shot gun which has the chamber attached to the barrel.
