What do you'll think? I honestly am not an expert on this.
But isn't .357 "overkill" for in home defense and quite dangerous to others on the street? And a round dangerous to fire in a home surrounded by other homes - not to mention it may deafen you and your child/children in the vicinity for life.
That's a great round for long distance outdoors and may to stop a Kodiak bear before he gets up the hill to you.
Should you be involved in a self defense incident, I understand you will probably have to defend your choice of ammunition to a jury.
And I understand a jury will want to know why you need to use ammunition more powerful than is common among police.
Just saying. Stuff I've heard.
