I did recently read an old post by John Ross the author of "Unintended Consequences" about how back in 1972 he worked up a load for the .357 Auto Mag that had a muzzle velocity of 2870 FPS with a 90gr bullet from an 8 1/2" barrel. That velocity would likely penetrate anything less than class IV soft body armor.

But how would you carry or conceal an auto mag with such a long barrel?
