Yeah, the .357 mag is fairly uneventful, in MY opinion. That is why I bought a 44 mag. That took me to the next level. That, too, became unevenful. Then I bought a 454 casull. Now I was getting somewhere. I pushed that gun to the max loads and yearned for more performance. Then came the 500 SW mag. This is about all I want. I am pretty happy with it.
The moral of the story is: Don't blow up your gun trying to achieve a performance level out of it's league. Buy a bigger gun!
