Objective DATA

Mr. Davis :"It has more recoil and more flash than .40."

Flash/ blast, yes.
Recoil, no.

From the Winchester page, all Ranger T:
357 Sig 125 gr. @ 1,350 fps = PF 169
40 S&W 165 gr. @ 1,140 fps = PF 188
and thrown in for good measure....
45 acp 230 gr. @ 885 fps = PF 204

From my back yard & chronograph, all Ranger T:
G26: 9mm 124 gr. +P @ 1,162 fps = PF 144 (372# KE)
G33: 357 Sig 125 gr. @ 1,280 fps = PF 160 (454# KE)
G27: 40 S&W 165 gr. @ 1,071 fps = PF 177 (420# KE)
and a previously owned...
G36: 45 acp 230 gr. @ 874 fps = PF 201

Power factor is a calculation that can be used to compare recoil out of similar size pistols, as above.
bullet weight x bullet speed/ 1,000 = PF
