As a historical footnote, I think the .38/44 cartridge should be the one that would have been designed to penetrate old Ford car bodies, as it was available with a full metal jacket and the .357 Magnum was not, at least not then. The .38 S&W and the .38 S&W Special were also both available with what was described as a "metal piercing" bullet. I doubt if they were available down at the local hardware store, however.
